Intrusion Detection & Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS)
Why Do IDS/IPS Solutions Need to Evolve to Stay Effective?
A comprehensive survey of network security professionals recently conducted by Cybersecurity Insiders reveals that Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS) continue to be one of the most widely deployed security tools in the world. However, respondents also raised serious concerns about IDS/IPS’ ability to detect and protect against the most advanced threats.
The report presents the results of this new survey. Key findings include:
- 45% of respondents consider inaccurate, noisy alerts as their biggest headache
- 51% of respondents want their IDS/IPS to improve detection of anomalous and evasive traffic
- 64% of respondents require expanded IDS/IPS protocol and application coverage for cloud-based business apps (Salesforce, Office 365, etc.)
- 23% of respondents need better traffic visibility in encrypted environments
Security practitioners will find the report useful in evaluating their own cybersecurity strategies, and IDS/IPS developers will be able to align product roadmaps with evolving user needs and concerns.
