What is the difference between IPS and a firewall?
TIPS TO PREPARE
You probably recognize a trend here. The interviewer is asking technical questions comparing different types of network devices & technologies to each other. The purpose of questions like these is to test your knowledge about networking technologies. They are likely asking about technologies that are currently employed on their network. Continue to answer these technical questions as you have throughout the interview.
"An IPS is an intrusion prevention system. This is a passive device that constantly monitors your network and identifies possible intrusions, creating a log of them. Firewalls are active devices or software applications that detect intrusions and take actions to prevent them. These two technologies can be used in tandem to provide a higher level of security for your network."
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
