I use a bridged (stealth) Snort inline as IPS, and it works great for the amount of traffic we handle here ( +- 2Mbs).If you subscribe for rules update you will have a very powerfull IPS system. It can be configured to run with PIX and Cisco routers also ( Snortsam).

Subject: IDS-IPS Recommendations

I am looking at installing an IDS or IPS system for a small company (150
computers) the is very security conscious.   Since I am very familiar with
Cisco am looking at a Cisco ASA5510 IPS edition.

What are your experiences with the 5510?  What are the real life good and
bad points of this system?

What other systems should I consider?

My budget is $10.000.

Thanks for your help,
