 The great intrusion prevention debate

"MWL : While I agree with your assertion that the infrastructure can be orchestrated to provide more comprehensive protection, I do not agree that IPS is simply a point defense. Unlike a firewall, IPS is not being deployed just at the perimeter, but throughout the entire network to protect the core as well as internal segments. To meet the stringent networking requirements (latency, throughput, reliability) that these core and internal network locations demand, state-of-the-art IPSes are based on purpose-built custom hardware like other network infrastructure devices such as switches and routers."
