This paper explores the use of collective intelligence with sophisticated intrusion prevention technologies, but is accomplished in a way that both technical and non-technical readers can appreciate. Although Sentinel IPS products are discussed openly, it is the security concepts themselves that have great value for the reader in understanding the defense of any network.

Collective Intelligence (CI) is not new. Similar ideas have been illuminated as far back as a concept of a „group mind‟ derived from Plato‟s concept of panpsychism (that mind or consciousness is omnipresent and exists in all matter). In the discussion that follows Wikipedia is utilized as a source of reference information regarding the definition and attributes of CI.
