Hi EE,

My company is looking to purchase an IDS device to protect our publicly accessible web servers. We are mostly a juniper outfit so i have looked at some of the juniper IDS devices available, but i would like to know what else you recommend. Since this is a new direction we are open to exploring alternatives.

Tippingpoint is a good choice.
There is also Cisco IDS, but i would not recommend it.
I have personally worked with RealSecure ISS, now IBM. Its pretty good with a good interface to manage it.
IDP module from juniper too is not up to the mark.

Thanks guys, your comments have definitely got me going on the right path. i was hoping i could stick with juniper, but more research has led me to the conclusion that it may not be the best device for the job!
