Intrusion detection system (IDS) is one of amongst the most essential consideration of cyber-security that can discover intrusion before and/or after attack occur. An Intrusion detection system is software or hardware designed to detect any malicious activity or attack against the system or network. The main contribution in this paper is to present an overall review of IDS types that are deployed in various environments. So many IDS researches have mostly described the types of IDS. However, their description has addressed a specific area and there is a lack of researches that present an overall review of IDS types. This paper conducts a review of different types of IDSs related to different environments and platforms through a comparative approach. Also, it presents a classification of IDS types based on criteria such as platform and input data. It introduces their significant features, advantages and disadvantages of each type. The finding out of this survey have been coming from our analysis of the current research and trends of the field. In this paper has addressed the lack of IDS types research and many points of research have been figured out as a future work
