Your best place to look would be a IPS vendor. All most all them have canned
e-mails showing exactly what you want to show.

Subject: IPS vs Firewall

List,

I am to give a presentation concerning IPS vs. IDS and why we have decided
to implement an IPS solution.  I have stuff about each of those, but my big
problem is going to come from my LAN/WAN group.  Because I've decided to
place the IPS outside the firewall, they have already moaned about it and I
know they're going to bring up why we need IPS vs. Firewall.  I have stuff
about what firewalls don't look for or do compared to IPS.

My question is, how would you go about showing that firewalls or BigIP
routers can be attacked directly?  For those of you concidering IPS, can you
impart any of the knowledge gained by implementing your solutions?

Many thanks,
Benny
