Comprehensive network and endpoint security is a key part of an organisation’s response to cyber threats and the ability to detect and stop an intruder who has managed to compromise the network is paramount.
Threats from inside the organisation and zero day attacks may breach traditional cyber security defences. Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) monitor the network or systems for malicious activity or policy violations. Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) then act to stop the malicious activity.
Some organizations depend on their firewalls for Intrusion Detection and Prevention and major firewall vendors are building some intrusion detection and prevention features into their products. However, a dedicated IDS/IPS solution can detect and prevent a much broader range of malicious activities than those built into most firewalls.
