Intrusion Prevention

Intrusion prevention is a preemptive approach to network security used to identify potential threats and respond to them swiftly. Like an intrusion detection system (IDS), an intrusion prevention system (IPS) monitors network traffic and actively resets connections found to exhibit malicious behaviours before they cause their damage.
