We looked at SourceFire as well, and I liked it.  I think in the end we decided the PA was a little more mature, and I 
believe the cost was less as well.

We're also looking at replacing our current IPS. I'm looking into Palo Alto and SourceFire at the moment - working on 
getting in some demo units for each. It looks like there's a large number of people are happy with PA - anyone using or 
demoed the SourceFire NGIPS/FW and have feedback?

Thanks,

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
