I’m studying for my Computer Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
A client of yours is concerned about external intrusion on their corporate network, and those inside their environment that they seek to fire! They’ve heard about firewalls and they need your professional opinion as to whether, with the implementation of firewalls, they can feel 100% secured. Still on their quest to maintain a secure environment, especially with much concern on external attacks, they would like to understand what Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) are about.
As a group, complete the following:
- What are IDS and IPS?
- What can they protect them against?
- Write a 2-3 page paper that fully answers the questions.
- Your paper should be written in the APA style. Be sure to cite any sources you used to write your paper.
