ASA IPS software module

Hi

Can I use the software ASA IPS module to detect and report on "outgoing" traffic from inside network

I require detail on ports being used - the traffic flows - virus's etc, unusual traffic - Im only interested in Intrusion detection (IDS) at this stage - reporting on traffic going "out" only

thanks

egress (or outbound) will be inspected as well - you can check out this flowchart
http://ccie-or-null.net/2011/11/15/packet-flow-through-a-cisco-asa/
...the following order:
    ACL’s will be checked first.
    NAT rules will checked second.
    Inspect policies will applied next.
    Then after all that the packet enters IPS-AIM Module for inspection, after that it leaves through the egress interface.
More details in the inline (more secure) and Promiscuous (less secure) mode
