D.

Explanation:
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is deployed as an in-line device that can detect and block
hacking attempts. An intrusion detection system (IDS) normally is deployed in sniffing mode and
can detect intrusion attempts, but cannot effectively stopthem. A honeypot solution traps the
intruders to explore a simulated target. A network security scanner scans for the vulnerabilities, but
it will not stop the intrusion.
