Cisco catalyst switch which does same job as NME-IPS K9

Hi there,
At the moment I have a cisco switch 2960.  I was wondering if Cisco has the same model type switches which does IPS built in(network security) as well as switching?.  Since I have to replace my switches 2960 to new ones, I was thinking of buying switches which can do IPS filtering as well ?

If you look at the switch type that you are using then the answer is no. There is no such siwtch with an integrated IPS. You probably have to llo at the Cisco IPS 4200 models or upcoming newer series. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps4077/prod_models_home.html

If you want to change the switch model type there is an IPS module (ISDM-2) for the 6500 switch which does exactly the same thing as the 4200. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2706/products_data_sheet09186a00801e55dd.html
