5 Top Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Trends

Intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) have been with us for some time. Over the decades, the technology has evolved. A big distinction was once made about IPS versus intrusion detection systems (IDSs). These days, both tend to be included within the same product.

IPS, then, relates to software or hardware that offers network security by preventing hackers from intruding. Such tools monitor network activity continuously. They search for suspicious and malicious activity and take action to detect and prevent incursion or damage. As such, there are different ways of implementing IPS technology.  

Here are five of the top trends in the IPS market:  

1. Incorporation Of AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is seeping into all aspects of life. And it is filtering into a wide array of security tools too. This includes IPS.

AI takes much of the drudgery out of IPS, as it automates many of the detection steps by being able to pick up anomalous network behavior and save time trawling through logs.

“AI has an important role to play in cybersecurity, because it builds on the expertise of its designers to generalize their knowledge and automates decision making,” said Adam Spotton, head of data science, DNSFilter.

Domain name systems (DNS) has been undergirding the internet for more than four decades — and still it’s a daily pathway for cyberattacks. Considering how long security pros have had to create a better way to secure it, DNS security continues to lag, posing a significant security risk today. It remains responsible, at least to some extent, for a significant portion of cyber-attacks.
