Information security is a challenging issue for all business organizations today amidst increasing cyber threats. While there are many alternative intrusion detection & prevention systems available to choose from, selecting the best solution to implement to detect & prevent cyber-attacks is a difficult task. The best solution is of the one that gets the best reviews, and suits the organization’s needs & budget. In this review paper, we summarize various classes of intrusion detection and prevention systems, compare features of alternative solutions and make recommendation for implementation of one as the best solution for business organization in Fiji.
