Cisco IPS Sensors/Modules are used at our company's perimeter firewalls organization-wide. It addresses unwanted intrusions and attacks from the outside web and helps our company keep safe. Not only can it block malicious traffic at the perimeter level, but it can also block east-west internal traffic as well and provides much-needed network visibility into our own network.
- Identifies and blocks malicious traffic.
- Detects unwanted traffic and allows your company to be proactive, let alone reactive.
- Comprehensive Threat protection allows companies to adjust thresholds and policies at will.
- The web GUI is somewhat slow.
- Sometimes difficult to adjust policies.
- Fail open feature may not work properly all the time.
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.

Cisco TAC has been great at helping with configurations and issues that may arise.

We use Cico IPS Sensor for the LAN and DMZ and in between a firewall sandwich. In parallel, we use it in the customer zone when the customer buys the service. This means that we are selling it as managed IDS service. At the moment, we have no customers who want to use active IPS because of the risk to drop the necessary data.

Cisco offers good and standardized hardware in many performance classes. Talos is good in actual feeds and at working together with other security departments. IPS Sensor integrates well with all Cisco hardware and tools. The best option is to add StealthWatch for a good overview. It's easy to deploy and manage over zones.
