Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from eight members on network Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS). We begin this summary by outlining the extent to which members draw influence from Lockheed Martin's Cyber Kill Chain and MITRE ATT&CK network intrusion detection frameworks, explore members' IDPS portfolio strategies, including the number of security vendor solutions covered in the portfolio and utilized during specialized network IDPS use cases. We then identify several artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) solutions that members consider for their defensive strategies and close by describing members' approaches to determine the level of specialization required for their network IDPS portfolios.
