What is the Difference Between Host IDS and Network IDS?


“Certain files should never change. The only reason files may potentially change, if you’re not aware of it, is a third party or a storage problem where the file is corrupt. Both of these issues are ones you should resolve right away.”


What is the difference between Network IDS (intrusion detection system) and Host IDS? And what is best for your business? Do you know the difference?

An intrusion detection system monitors your network and looks for suspicious traffic. How an intrusion is detected is very important and can mean the difference between being secure or being compromised. Do you know what to look for? Make sure you have the best intrusion detection system monitoring your network.
