Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a system or software that monitors the network traffic and system for signs of malicious activities and violation of any security policies. The IDS then issues alerts on the detection of any intrusions or security threats in real time so that database administrators or security analysts can take necessary actions to secure the system further.
