Intrusion prevention and intrusion detection systems are two technologies that can provide such risk reduction. Cisco provides various Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) sensor platforms that satisfy different requirements for network integration and performance.This course describes the basic definitions of and approaches to intrusion prevention and intrusion detection.
