Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for IDPS

IDPS continues to be absorbed by firewall placements at the perimeter, yet still offers the best detection efficacy and a central prevention, detection, and response solution on a network. Security and risk management leaders should seek innovation in advanced analytics and public cloud support.

  • One of the reasons standalone IDPSs are often deployed is "for network-based intrusion and threat detection using additional methods like advanced analytics to detect threats that have bypassed other controls."
  • IDPS will evolve such that "by year-end 2020, 60% of IDPS deployments will be augmented with the use of analytics methods, like machine learning and user and entity behavior analytics, up from less than 10% today."
  • Vectra is the only visionary for our use of machine learning and analytics to automate threat hunting, triage, correlation and prioritization, which reduces the security operations workload by up to 32X.
