A Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) sensor can be configured to provide detection or prevention capability to help defend against network attacks. Such sensors can be integrated into the network in several different ways, which require special consideration. By initializing the Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) sensor, you will configure and verify basic management and traffic forwarding capabilities of the Cisco IPS device. This course describes the available Cisco IPS sensor network integration modes, provides an analysis of their benefits and limitations, and enables you to perform configuration, verification, and troubleshooting tasks that are used when first deploying a Cisco IPS sensor in its environment and when managing it during its normal operation.
