IDS and IPS Systems in Wireless Communication Scenarios
The set of mechanisms trying to provide an automatic, efficient, quick, and exact answer to intrusion intent or attack that can cause damages in a host or network. The objective of the IPS is mainly to prevent attacks against the entity (or entities) being protected.

Intrusion and Anomaly Detection in Wireless Networks
IPS is the software that prevents an attack on a network or computer system. An IPS is a significant step beyond an intrusion detection system (IDS), because it stops the attack from damaging or retrieving data. Whereas, an IDS passively monitors traffic by sniffing packets off a switch port, an IPS resides inline like a firewall, intercepting and forwarding packets. It can thus block attacks in real time.

Artificial Intelligence-Based Solutions for Cyber Security Problems
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a form of network security that works to detect and prevent identified threats. Intrusion prevention systems constantly monitor your network, look for potential malicious events, and collect information about them. IPS reports these events to system administrators and takes preventative actions such as closing access points and configuring firewalls to prevent future attacks. IPS solutions can also be used to detect issues with corporate security policies and deter employees and network guests from violating the rules contained in these policies.
