Cisco's powerful sensor stops threats and attacks related to network traffic (not operating system and application)
-A great advantage: It stops trigger packets. Also it can use stream normalization techniques.
-Operating system independent and cost-effective as it can be added like a WIC to the Cisco router (ISR router). At our company we have chosen the IPS WIC module to match with our Cisco 3745 router...
Lets talk about the speed of the device, It can perform inspection at 4Gbps speed.
It protects the network from several network attacks. For example DDOS, SQL Injections, Botnets.
It also has intelligent threat detection system.
IPS can be configured in Cisco ISRs using advanced IP Services....
