Not Your Father’s IPS: SANS Survey on Network Security Results
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 439
Next Generation Enterprise Network Security Solutions: The Importanace of Incorporating Vulnerability Intelligence
Hackers are quick to exploit newly discovered vulnerabilities in the software enterprises deploy and use. Traditional security defenses rely on known attack signatures, so they often fail to detect attacks that exploit new vulnerabilities. HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) combine technology that focuses on the root problems common to
Defending Against Increasingly Sophisticated Cyber Attacks
Traditional intrusion prevention systems (IPS) fall short in detecting today’s advanced persistent threat (APT) cyber attacks. Next-generation intrusion prevention systems (NGIPS)—like HP Tipping Point NGIPS—go beyond IPS by gaining greater contextual awareness and applying it to attack detection. This study of APTs compares the features of IPS and NGIPS. It presents factors to consider when
