Hi all,

I'm doing some security consulting for a client. this client have around 30 remote branches connected to his core. the 
problem is that sometimes the AV fails to detect new viruses/worms coming from those branches so those viruses/worms 
mess up his LAN.another problem is that the the client doesn't have much of control over the remote PCs in the 
branches. so I thought about adding another layer of defence in which we will add an IPS (which Ips detects also 
viruses/worms??) which will filter and scan all traffic coming from the branches.

I just wonder if you guys agree with my suggestion.

any comments will be welcomed.


any recomendations for the IPS?

thanks a lot
