Intrusion Prevention recommendations?

Looking for recommendations for a good intrusion prevention system.

On what??

At clients, we use VPN routers set up for basic intrusion detection.

On servers and on workstations, we use Symantec Endpoint Protection which has good intrusion detection.

All the above works.

Here is where any system fails:

1. People go to dodgy links. Since the person clicked, there is little or no protection.
2. People open emails from unknown sources. Too late at this point.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I am looking for a solution for servers and workstations.
Can you please provide your requirement?
As I noted, we use Symantec Endpoint Protection which has very good built-in Intrusion Detection.

How new?  Recently new?  It took them long enough.  Almost everything else major was just better for so many, many years.  I'll wait until it's been proven for a stretch before ever considering recommending them.

The slowdowns on ESET are only noticeable when you run intensive calculations or disk access and you realize that the process took a bit longer than it normally did.  Symantec has historically frozen the system at times and made it unusable until their scan finished.  There were so many complaints at places that had it installed.  It was a just pain to deal with.  I've known many other sysadmins that would choose anything but Symantec.
Symantec has historically frozen the system at times and made it unusable until their scan finished  <-- Such never happened to me. I am using Windows 10 and need the newest version of SEP but any version of SEP in the past 36 months worked well for me.

I have heard the stories above as well - many times.
