With an endless emergence of new threats and company resources under constant pressure, it can be difficult to balance all of the strategic and operational tasks required for an effective information security program. Network Intrusion Detection System and Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) devices can provide a highly effective layer of security designed to protect critical assets from cyber threats. Organizations can detect attempts by attackers to compromise systems, applications and data by deploying Network Intrusion Detection Systems; however, keeping the devices tuned and up-to-date so they are effective is a challenge for many organizations.
Managing IDS and IPS devices requires a specialized skill set because the devices are only effective if they are well tuned to the current threats and the network in which they are deployed. Intrusion Detection System devices can generate thousands of alerts each day and are very prone to false positives, making it difficult to identify true threats and take timely action to protect assets.
