What is an advantage of using an IPS?

  • It can stop trigger packets.
  • It has no impact on network latency.
  • It is installed outside of the data traffic flow.
  • It does not impact network traffic if there is a sensor overload.
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    An IPS can stop trigger packets but because they are installed inline they add some latency and jitter to the traffic. IDS sensors work off line and are passive. They add very little latency. However they cannot stop trigger packets.
