Key Takeaways:

  • 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
