Intrusion prevention is a pre-emptive approach to network security used to identify potential threats and respond to them swiftly. Like an intrusion detection system (IDS), an intrusion prevention system (IPS) monitors network traffic. However, because an exploit may be carried out very quickly after the attacker gains access. IPS also have the ability to take immediate action, based on a set of rules established by the network administrator.
For example, an IPS might drop a packet that it determines to be malicious and block all further traffic from that IP address or port. Legitimate traffic, meanwhile, should be forwarded to the recipient with no apparent disruption or delay of service.
It protects against network and application-level attacks, securing organizations against intrusion attempts, malware, Trojans, DoS. And DDoS attacks, malicious code transmission, backdoor activity, and blended threats.
