Small to mid business; is there a good option for IPS that doesn't break the bank.  They currently have cisco / Fortinet firewalls in place that do not have IPS, but are being quoted for a Firewall Appliance that is used for an Enterprise solution.
They do not have any plans for VPNs etc.

THoughts would be GREAT... Thanks

You might check out IBM/ISS.  We had one of their appliances with a managed service agreement and we found it to be quite secure for us.  We abandoned it because we wanted to go use the IPS module of our new ASA's.  The built-in IPS of the ASA is pretty good, but I still like the IBM/ISS solution better.

FortiGate firewall is a UTM/NGFW and IPS is part of it. They just need to buy license for IPS updates. We are using it and its quite effective. Basically it is very easy to create customized IPS rules.

Good Luck!
