Hi, I am wondering if anyone has done a comparison head to head with the Tipping Point and Sourcefire IPS systems inline on their network. We have demos from both vendors and know the basics like pricing, capabilities, and general operations. I am looking for more specific factors like speed tests/performance, what is going to do a more through job of blocking, what is going to do a better job of containing a virus or worm, and the like.

We are having a hard time deciding between the two and it seems like there are are a lot more people using the Tipping Point and Sourcefire references are harder to come by. I would also like to here any experiences from people that have Sourcefire inline IPS.

Thanks in advance.
