Detect and Prevent difference

In SmartView, when CheckPoint shows Attacks (for example 2 critical attacks), If I click it (let's say it is found by Anti-Virus blade), it shows details and writes only "Action: Detect" and  "not prevented by policy".

Besides, in General Overview tab, it shows general information about detection and prevention (%).

How can I clearly understand them?

Does it mean that blades cannot prevent all type of attacks?

What is the difference between detect and prevent? Does "detect" refers to some kind of protection?
