Re: IPS recommendations

Not to 'fork' the conversation thread, but we are considering a Palo
Alto 5050 for a data center firewall solution. One concern we have is
that in the not-too-distant future we may be doing a major
infrastructure upgrade to Cisco's Nexus line, and we aren't sure how
well a 'traditional' firewall appliance would play in that scenario.

Anyone out there have experience with integrating Palo Altos into a
Cisco Nexus environment? Any major show-stoppers or concerns?

+1 Palo Alto - It's been very solid for us for the last year and a half.

Our current IPS is reaching EOS, so we would take this opportunity to
look at alternatives to our existing Tipping Point unit.  I was
looking to see what everyone else is using and how well it is working
for them.


Thank you
