The sensor will not take any actions. It only records/reports the events (that's why it is called a sensor)
Cisco Threat Response (CTR) runs on another server and can take designated actions in response to specified alarms.
Or, you need Cisco MVS running on a server that can integrate your firewalls and screening access routers to take actions based on specific alarms.
None of them are going to take any action that you do not specifically configure it to take.
