Not Your Father’s IPS: SANS Survey on Network Security Results

In today's security landscape, IPSs are in the process of radical change. Established IPS companies are rapidly improving the look and feel of their IPS devices, making them much more management friendly. IPS inputs were once confined to direct packet capture, but now the packet capture function, while still critical, is in many cases being moved to a sensor platform. The IPS proper is now moving toward what many would call a 'Next-Generation IPS' (NG-IPS), Because of changes in network security, SANS asked our community of security professionals to let us know about their network security practices today, their use of IPS, their technical and management capacities, and how they expect their IPS to be integrated into their overall security strategy in the years to come.
