Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) -- sometimes these acronyms are used a bit interchangeably, so we wanted to take a moment to clarify their differences and how these systems can be useful in your environment.

Whiteboard Wednesday: IPS and IDS: What's The Difference? [VIDEO]

Take a look at this week's Whiteboard Wednesday -- and as always, if there's a topic you'd like us to cover, drop us a comment here, Tweet us @rapid7 or use the hashtag #rapid7WbW to share your ideas.

We love hearing how these Whiteboard Wednesdays have been useful for staying on top of breaking news and for user education, so your input helps us keep these helpful and relevant to you. We're listening (but not in a creepy way, promise).
