Changing threats, business processes and technology call for a new look at network security and how it interacts with our intrusion prevention systems. But just what are the next-generation intrusion prevention systems we need to meet those threats, and what do your peers think should be in them?

  • How you compare with your peers in management support for network security
  • Where you stand in IPS deployment vs. your peers
  • What features your peers would like to see in next generation IPS
  • Which elements, such as firewalls, routers, switches and clients they would like to see as part of a next generation fabric-based IPS.
