    Important Questions on IPS

    What is the maximum number of computer systems that can be protected per IPS? Or, if the answer depends on the computing environment, describe a formula including factors such as IP connection setup/tear-down per second, traffic types and at least three other factors that could be used to reasonably predict the minimum number of IPS devices required to protect 100 Web servers.

    As clearly as possible, describe the essential hardware that differentiates your product from other available products.

    As clearly as possible, describe the essential software that differentiates your product from other available products.

    What is the capacity (usually measured in gigabits per second) of the backplane of the IPS models offered by your company?

    Assuming the OSI seven-layer network model, specify all the layers at which your product offers protection.

    Describe a reasonable scenario that would produce a 500-microsecond latency in a packet flow.

    Does the IPS provide rate shaping to ensure that known, normal traffic flows are given priority over unknown traffic flows?

    In the last six months, what was the shortest period of time between the releases of two signature updates?

    Define "high availability" for your product (that is, hot failover or load balancing or a combination thereof) and provide a diagram showing how the high-availability options work.

    Important questions indeed.. But they all depend on the IPS used.. Different brands/models have different specs... Shouldn't you be asking these questions to the manufacturer?

    Looks like you need to write a proposal and want us to do your legwork..

    If you have specific questions about certain hardware or if you want to know other people's opinion about a product fire away..
