I am looking at the Watchguard Firebox 500.  What I am wondering is, it says that it was Intrusion Prevention built 
into it.  Is this a true Intrusion Prevention System?


What, in your mind, constitutes a "true" intrusion prevention system?  One could easily answer your question "yes", but 
it really depends on what you consider to be a "true" IPS.
