Selecting An Intrusion Prevention System

If you read my editorial, "New Reports on UTM and IPS Solutions," in last week's Security UPDATE Newsletter then you know that The NSS Group released two new reports (Unified Threat Management and IPS Group Test - Edition 3) that cover Gigabit intrusion prevention systems (IPS).

A few days ago Bob Walder of The NSS Group published an article in CIO Update where he points points out that "no matter how much research you do using reports such as the ones we produce, you should never use those reports as the only basis for making your buying decisions. You should always set aside the time and budget and technical resource to perform a full bake-off in-house between all the vendors on your short-list."
