The Pros and Cons of Intrusion Detection System Installation

With the increase in the incidents of crime, vandalism and theft, the need for the installation of the various security systems and gadgets in order to build an established security infrastructure has also elevated, simplifying the lives of the residents, business owners and industrialists and offering them a peace of mind in regards to the safety and security of their perimeters. But, in this great scheme of security and surveillance, what has rather been obscured than simplified is the availability of an extensive range of security systems with the larger than life diversification of each, giving customers a plethora of options to choose from and confusion triggering a severe headache as to which system is best suitable for their property.

Today striking out this confusion and offering some useful insights on how intrusion detection systems can help preserve your business’s confidential data by automatically alerting the system administrators when there is any unwanted intrusion in your system by the invaders through malicious activities, the experts of Sure Secure has curated a detailed blog.

Classification of Intrusion Detection Systems

Network Intrusion Detection System: The network IDS tracks and carefully monitors the traffic on the individual networks by effectively analyzing the traffic and making a comparison with the existing attacks in the library.

Host Intrusion Detection System: The host IDS is employed on individual networks where the network connection to the system is tracked, monitored, analyzed and audited and in case of any breach the system administrator is immediately alerted.

Signature-based Intrusion Detection System: The signature oriented IDS works on the matching and comparing approach where the system data is monitored and analyzed and compared with the existing signatures of the attacks in the library.

Anomaly-based Intrusion Detection System: The Anomaly-based IDS works with the assistance of a statistical model of a normal network traffic, which consists of,

  • Bandwidth

  • Traffic protocols

  • Ports and devices part of the network

A comparison is made between the normal network traffic and the statistical model, in case of any discrepancy, the system administrator is immediately alerted

Passive Intrusion Detection System: A passive IDS works by identifying the sort of malware operation running in the system and straight out alerting the system administrator regarding the issue.

Reactive Intrusion Detection System: A Reactive IDS not only looks for the issues and threats but also resets the malefic or suspicious network connection. The system also temporarily blocks the network traffic from the unknown source.
