Hybrid IPSIDS Systems

Hybrid IPS/IDS Systems

Deploying separate IDS and IPS devices is cumbersome. Protecting your network using hybrid IPS devices, though, enables you to obtain the benefits of both technologies from a single device because IDS and IPS are complimentary technologies.

Using the ongoing network configuration, a hybrid IPS device can provide the IPS protection to prevent an attack coming from or going to the Internet (see Figure7-5). Using IDS functionality, the same device also can watch for attacks going between two internal systems.
