Two common security appliances are IPS and IDS. IPS stands for Intrusion Prevention System and IDS stands for Intrusion Detection System. An IPS is an active system that sits on the network and intercepts network traffic, analyses and stops anything deemed malicious. Whereas IDS is a passive system; it doesn't stop network traffic, but instead sets alerts and sends messages if something happens. IPS and IDS appliances can be either behavior based or signature based, network based or host based. It's good to have a combination of components for maximum network security. Malicious activity or violations of policy can be very serious, and should be investigated promptly. You can provide tremendous value to your organization by learning how to manage this technology. The IDS/IPS Micro Certification is a deep dive into IDS/IPS characteristics, IDS/IPS types, network-based and host-based IDS/IPS, and industry best practices.
