The GREATEST risk posed by an improperly implemented intrusion prevention system (IPS) is:
that there will be too many alerts for system administrators to verify.
decreased network performance due to IPS traffic.
the blocking of critical systems or services due to false triggers.
reliance on specialized expertise within the IT organization.
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) prevents a connection or service based on how it is
programmed to react to specific incidents. If the packets are coming from a spoofed address and
the IPS is triggered based on previously defined behavior, it maybiock the service or connection of
a critical internal system. The other choices are risks that are not as severe as blocking critical
systems or services due to false triggers.
