Assignment Description: Firewalls and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems

Both firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention systems are used extensively in network security, including protecting the network perimeter. They will be configured based on where they are located and the security requirements within that security zone.

Write a 3-4 page paper in which you:

  1. Describe the different types of firewalls.
  2. Analyze how the security requirements within different security zones will impact the firewall configurations.
  3. Describe the purpose of a intrusion detection system, intrusion prevention system, and intrusion detection and prevention system.
  4. Assess the effectiveness of these devices in protecting the perimeter of the network. Include an explanation of what they do protect and what they do not protect.
  5. Examine the standards and protocols used in the development of network perimeter devices, and address if more or less standardization is needed, and how that will improve the security of network perimeter devices as a whole.


The paper must be 3-4 pages and be in accordance with APA 6th edition. The 3-4 page requirement is for the main body of the paper; this does not include the cover page and the list of references. You must include at least 3 references in your paper.
