IDS and IDP

Dear all,

I have a big confusion between IDS and IDP , what is the clear main difference between them?

Re: IDS and IDP

IDS (Intrusion detection systems) does intrusion detection and generates alerts.

IDP (Intrusion detection and Prevention system) detects intrusions and also prevents them, it also generates alerts.

Re: IDS and IDP

IDS checks traffic flows and alerts on anomalies or triggers of signatures. IPS does the same thing but it can also prevent attacks by accessing your devices and making ACL/firewall changes to block the offender. IPS is the next generation of IDS.
