We have a PIX firewall that does stateful inspection. We also run Kaspersky on all machines which has built in IPS.
A new client is requesting information on our front door IPS. We have none.
I am looking for a good, cost effective provider. We need a hardware appliance in front of our network. We also need 24/7 noc monitoring of the IPS/IDS. I have seen prices as low as $6000. Since I have never purchased this, I would like any feedback, comments or recommendations for EE users.
Any relavant answer that helps me will get points. If you provide me a 100% solution in one answer, you get all 500 points!
