Intrusion Preventions / Intrusion Detections

Intrusion Preventions / Intrusion Detections


Threats against organisation information and integrity are rising every day and becoming more insidious than ever. With more than 8 million viruses and other forms of attacks added in the last 12 months alone, we should be more prepared today than ever.

 

As a result, organisation is continuing to turn to intrusion detection and protection systems as a foundation of their organisation. The first step in defending your network is to understand where your digital assets are located and where the vulnerabilities lie.

 

An Intrusion detection system IDS is designed to monitor all inbound and outbound network activity and also identifies any suspicious patterns that may indicate a network or a system attack from someone who is attempting a breach (compromise a system). These suspicious activities could be viruses, malware, worm or a hacker. IPS is often mistaken to be just a firewall or a good antivirus program. It is a tool that is used in conjunction of those standard security products to increase your system security.

Intrusion Prevention system IPS provides policies and rules for the network traffic along with the IDS for alerting systems or security administrators about a suspicious attack. So they work together, when IDS informs about a potential attack an IPS makes an attempt to stop it. IPS has the capability to prevent know intrusions signatures, but also some unknown attacks due to its database of generic attack behaviours.

These IDS / IPS can be more hardware and software implemented in the organisation.
