Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Intrusion Prevention System technology from Hyve protects your business from internet threats and instils confidence in your customers.
What is an Intrusion Prevention System? (IPS)
An Intrusion Prevention System is a network security technology that works to detect and prevent identified threats. Intrusion Prevention Systems are best suited to individual solutions, as they learn your systems inside out so that if something appears malicious, it immediately blocks it.
IPS continuously monitor your network, looking for possible malicious incidents and capturing information about them. The IPS reports these events to system administrators and takes preventative action, such as configuring firewalls and closing access points to prevent further attacks.
Unlike Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), which is a passive system that scans traffic and reports back on threats, the IPS is placed in the direct communication path between source and destination, actively analyzing and taking automated actions on all traffic flows that enter the network.
Why do you need an IPS?
Information is the backbone of any business. In many cases, information is the business. It’s invaluable to the enterprise and very valuable to thieves. Sensitive business information is also at risk: product designs, IP, business plans, research information and application code are attractive targets for industrial espionage by unscrupulous competitors, nation-states and cybercriminals who will sell to the highest bidder.
Businesses store millions of customer records: credit card data; personally identifiable information; medical records and personal financial data on internet-facing servers. The cost of a data breach can be enormous.
Like legitimate business, organised crime has gone cyber – it’s where the money is. In just a few years, cybercrime has grown into big business. Hackers use clever attack tools, viruses and malware, Attackers employ armies of infected computers to launch attacks.
Hackers launch Botnets that launch massive, automated attacks that scan enterprises for vulnerabilities and exploit them, usually to steal information. Botnets also send billions of spam messages and can be used for crippling Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. The attacking computers make repeated requests to the application in an attempt to exhaust its resources, rendering it unable to respond to other requests. DDoS attacks cause costly network downtime to organisations that rely on the Internet to do business.
Firewalls and endpoint anti-malware products are essential security tools but are now seen as inadequate in the face of these sophisticated onslaughts, so IPS can be a great addition to your security suite.
