Now, what a clever marketing pull to call these devices
"Intrusion Prevention Systems", wasn't it?
But I do blame CEOs for making decisions on certain products
a "strategic" issue and part of their domain at all!
That's what i call "big management problems". A stupid moron is not a person
who does not have a clue in some technical matters - no one can know everyting
- but a clueless one who pretends he does and who makes decisions instead of
delegating this function to a competent person.
"Strategic". This makes me sick.
IMHO this is one of the main reasons for many bad products in
the field. Remember MS ads: "The network that doesn't need an admin ..."
Stuff like that makes me want to bang my head against a wall.
