Intrusion prevention systems (IPS)

IPS are found on Layer 2 of the TCP/IP model.

An IPS is designed to take the information reported by the IDS and cross-check it for similar reported activity (e.g., check a blocklist or allow list) and action the potential threat by applying policy rules and blocking, allowing, or rate-limiting traffic from the source.
