Intrusion Prevention Systems also known as Intrusion Detection & Prevention Systems, monitor incoming traffic to your network to make sure no unwarranted intrusions slip through the net. Intrusion Prevention Systems can be either Host (HIPS), Network (NIPS) or Wireless (WIPS), and sit in line with your Firewall intercepting all in-bound traffic.
HIPS works predominantly on a laptop, which may not enjoy the relative safety of a Firewall or NIPS device. NIPS is a hardware-based appliance which sits inline on your network, while WIPS will monitor your entire wireless network and will normally form part of your network’s Wireless Access Points.
