I 'd like to know the risks, if any, in using a pair of interfaces on my cisco ips 4240 (in-line) in front of my firewall and activating the other pair to secure my dmz segment which is typically behind the firewall from internal worms and other malicious activities.

According to me, there are no risks involved. If your organisation has all that money, it is worth the attempt. You will be securing both the end points of your network. Cisco 4240 is a good product too.
