{tableName=glossary, name=Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS), description= An Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) is a security system used to detect and prevent unauthorized access to a computer network or system. It works by monitoring the network for suspicious activity and then taking action to block or alert the user when a malicious event occurs. The system consists of components such as network sensors, which detect malicious activity, and response mechanisms, which can be configured to block or alert the user when an attack is detected. IDPS can be used to protect networks from a variety of different threats including malware, phishing, and malicious code. It can also be used to detect and prevent insider threats, such as employees accessing confidential data or systems without authorization. IDPS can be deployed in either a software or hardware form, and can be used in conjunction with other security measures such as firewalls and antivirus software to provide a comprehensive security solution., topic=null, hs_path=intrusion-detection-and-prevention-system-idps}--
