Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

IPS sensors are more suited for companies that do not have visibility into their network with third-party analyzing tools. Scenarios would be to place IPS sensors at the perimeter firewalls mainly. IPS sensors are less appropriate for companies that have third-party analyzing tools that will mitigate vulnerabilities and malicious traffic and activities already.

Powertech Exit Point Manager for IBM i

As specified earlier, the product is very helpful to monitor the FTP, ODBC, JDBC, SQL and remote commands. What queries are coming to the system and who is issuing the commands so that we can analyze the and restrict their access if its not required. It helped us catch [a lot of] unauthorized users.

Powertech Exit Point Manager for IBM i

  • Adding a user to the exit point manger and then specifying the same user to restrict for particular service is bit complex i feel, instead of that making only one entry to restriction would be good.
  • All Features are good
  • Can maintain all systems from central system.

HP and Fortinet were in the PoC, too, but we decided to use Cisco IPS because it integrated with the rest of our Cisco equipment better. It was well integrated in the ACI datacenter, too. Performance and actual integration work with Cisco. Most of the workers at our company are familiar with Cisco.
