I tought to implement Enterasys DIR (dynamic
intrustion response ) on my corporate lan ,this new
thecnology had a Firewall on each swithch port. one
can configure a defailt policy for the entire switch
and with one click enable it on all ports, with
Netsight Atlas and authntication of users with a
backend Ldap server or Active directory I can
configure policy of traffic for each userin the
company this is a Fw for layers 2-4.
I tried to look for similer thechnologies at other
vendors like cisco and they dont have anything. is it
possible with cisco to configure ACL's on LAN switchs?
like in the old 2900 familiy?
and if yes, I dont thing it is managemble....

So what so you think about the DIR? I guess the other
vendors are way behind or am I wrong.

Thnaks !
