Do you really need IDS ?
It's a forensics tool, and although a very useful part of the security picture, it won't actually prevent intrusions without weeks worth of tuning and false positive removal...  and even then, I would not trust an IDS with upstream ACL modification and TCP reset ability not to do anything with my genuine traffic !
If you want to prevent intrusions, rather than detect (and notice a few days later), then you need an IPS.
Look at the IPS 5500 from TopLayer for example - www.toplayer.com.  :)

sounds like a very general question. So: do you have any problems keying in IDS in yur favorite search engine?
Or what else do you expect as answer?
