How Intrusion Prevention Systems Sniff out Sneaky Cyber Attacks
It’s 2018 and in the world of cyber security, this will be an unprecedented year. Of course, last year was also terrifying, but experts warn that what lies ahead is an increase in the quantity and variety of cyberattacks. As a business, the security of your data is vital to your operations, business continuity, and most importantly your reputation. A cyber attack can be trouble for any business. For a small or medium-sized business, it can be devastating. While there are many options for dealing with the ever-present threat of cyberattacks, one method that often goes under the radar is an Intrusion Prevention System , or IPS. What Is An Intrusion Prevention System? An intrusion prevention system is an automated and proactive form of network monitoring. Everything that comes into and goes out of your network is monitored and analyzed with AI. An IPS isn’t foolproof, but it is one of the best ways for your IT support to uncover suspicious activity in real time.
