Checkpoint smart defance as IPS

Hi list friends !!!

I did a pentest for a client's web site and found many holes most of them because of Sql injection which can be fixed with a good practice of input validation. I also recommended installing an IPS. the client has checkpoint smart defance module installed on his FW but I guess that this module is not enough because 1. one cant write signatures 2. the clients uses SSL on his web site so the IPS cant see the attack. AM I WRONG?? I think that the client needs to buy a real IPS which can also open the encrypted traffic.

which IPS you recommend for doing the task?

thanks a lot,
