Report: Defining Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems
by Craig Lawson, Adam Hils, Claudio Neiva
Courtesy of Fidelis Cybersecurity, download this complimentary report from Gartner. In it, Gartner illustrates the current state of IPS/IDS, and use cases that are suitable and unsuitable for this technology to address.
Key takeaways include:
- Intrusion prevention remains a sound, network-centric approach for the detection and prevention of vulnerability exploitation and to help with response actions
- A best-of-breed intrusion detection system/intrusion prevention system can address a wider range of network threats than legacy IPSs with multiple techniques of detections and prevention, while keeping the efficacy of traditional coverage areas
- IPS also has content-, application-, and identity-awareness capabilities to provide additional visibility and more-granular detection and blocking
