Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System (TPS)

Great for large enterprises 10k users or more and as part of defense in depth. Medium and small business you are better off looking for a cheaper UTM solution that does it all in one. It comes down to cost, are you willing to fund the cost of breaking out IPS functionality or moving towards a unified solution?

Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System (TPS)

  • Tipping point had a very nice GUI interface that sat on top of snort rules. It was easy to access, had nice customization of dashboards and output to syslog for SIEM solutions.
  • It was easy to configure rule sets, allow groups or singular allow/blocks or white-listing.
  • Security rule sets could be tweaked up or down and allow/drops signatures could be configured to help increase performance.

Cons

  • Biggest qualms I had with TippingPoint was that it was just a tad on the expensive side for what you get. Nowadays everything has gone UTM in firewalls and they do it all including IPS as part of the basic functionality so really, TP is losing a massive market share.
  • Don't see a future in the roadmap with so many other vendors getting onto the "unified" wagon and adding IPS as part of their service and at a cheaper price.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IPS Sensor (Discontinued)

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.
