With cyber crime on the rise, many organizations rely on intrusion prevention systems (IPS) to detect and stop attacks. But to counter increasingly sophisticated threats, IPS is evolving into next-generation IPS (NGIPS). What drives the need for these new systems? And how are they different from earlier IPS?
This study details a survey of over 400 IT security and network professionals conducted by the SANS Institute. It explores the use of IPS within respondents’ organizations and their plans for future NGIPS. Read the results to understand how contemporaries are using IPS and how NGIPS is evolving to counter today’s cyber threat.
