In modern IT infrastructures, it is becoming increasingly more important to protect company resources. Not only must company resources be defended passively, but also the protection must be constantly monitored and enhanced with systems that actively inspect the data that is passed over allowed and open connections. Intrusion prevention and intrusion detection systems are two technologies that can provide such risk reduction. This course covers the Cisco IOS Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). You will learn how to configure a Cisco router for intrusion prevention, including enabling IPS, working with signatures, and monitoring activity with syslog or Security Device Event Exchange (SDEE).
