Intrusion prevention and detection is the practice of monitoring a secure network for malicious activity and other risks. Suspicious activity that is detected typically is reported to a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform, which then applies correlation rules, use cases and other data to help distinguish actual threats from false alarms. An intrusion prevention and detection service is essential to helping maintain the security of your network.
Unlike a firewall, which only looks outward for intrusions in an effort to prevent a breach, intrusion prevention and detection also monitors attacks which come from within a secure environment, including policy violations from company employees who may access information from unsecured devices. In this way, an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is an important component that brings additional security to your network.
