Re: Cisco Security Agent and other HIPS

We chose ISS because they had an integrated IPS appliance as well as their
HIPS software which are all centrally deployed and managed.  It was the
deciding factor for us between IPS vendors like SourceFire and Tipping
Point.

Hi Gary, we're evaluating HIPS products for the same purpose but CSA didn't
make our list.  These three did:

Internet Security System's Proventia Server -
http://www.iss.net/products/index.html
McAfee -
http://www.mcafee.com/us/enterprise/products/host_intrusion_prevention/index
.html
and
Third Brigade - http://www.thirdbrigade.com.

Of the three, we're looking the hardest at Third Brigade so far.  I'll be
interested to here of your experience with CSA if you decide to demo or
purchase it.

Anyone be willing to comment on experiences with Cisco Security
Agent or other Host Intrusion Prevention software?

I'd like to put it on things like domain controllers, authentication
servers, management servers, and high value, internet facing servers.

Of course, reliability is a significant concern with those
applications.
