This device incorporates several features in one box. It has real flexibility, with fully adjustable and customisable policies, port configuration, and management screens. It also offers several different report types, which make finding clear information about attacks or network activity easy. Reports can also be created according to a schedule set by an administrator and saved on the device for review later.

Review: Countersnipe APD 1000

The APD 1000 is a 1U, Pentium 4-based server running Linux. As such, the first configuration steps are to connect a keyboard and mouse, and enter a management IP address for its management Fast Ethernet interface. It's quick and easy to do, and then gives access to the ADP 1000's web-based management, the Dashboard.

Review: Symantec Network Security 7120

Symantec's NS 7120 uses a similar-looking chassis to its firewall range, complete with the LCD control panel. This means it is the easiest device to initially configure, as you can set an IP address within minutes of turning it on.

Review: Proventia G400

The Proventia G400 might look like a standard rack-mount Intel-based server, but it's a lot more than that. The hardware was specifically chosen, drivers written for it and a network agent pre-installed. As a result, it can cope with up to 400Mbps of throughput and monitor up to four network segments using its four copper and four fiber Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Review: SonicWall Pro 5060

This is part of SonicWall's security platform appliance range. It's the top-of-the-line model, featuring six Gigabit Ethernet ports and an Intel Xeon processor. Technically, it's not actually an IPS appliance, but more of a firewall with IPS abilities. That said, you can turn the main firewall off and operate it in-line with another firewall.

Review: TippingPoint 50

This IPS (the renamed UnityOne-50) is the baby of TippingPoint's range, able to support throughput of up to 50Mbps – but the firm has a full range of products, able to cope with throughput up to five gigabits.

This might not be the most attractive appliance, with a bright green front, but its flexible architecture is likely to win it support. It is designed to sit internally or between the firewall and router and can support up to 100Mbps of network traffic. It comes with two Fast Ethernet ports and operates in-line with a network connection. There is also a dedicated management port.

Zen and the art of intrusion detection

If a tree falls in a forest with no-one to hear it, does it make a sound? So goes a typical zen-like philosophical question. While it’s thought-provoking, what does it have to do with Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)?
