Cisco IPS/IDS for the Router

Joshua Wood Joshua Wood Profile: Joshua Wood

Hi all, Cisco has several products. In fact most would agree that their product line is too complicated and filled out but that is a topic for another time. Let’s say you have a router and it sits at a point in your network where you want/need an IPS/IDS. You don’t want to put in another piece of hardware. Now wouldn’t it be nice if that router could also run IPS/IDS. Well it definitely can. In fact it is a full featured IPS/IDS with signature updates and the works and it can run on most ISR G2 routers.

The IPS/IDS solution from Cisco fits right inside the IOS and can be applied to any set of interfaces that you want. They provide this is an upgrade SKU or a bundle. The updates for the IPS/IDS will keep going as long as you have a SmartNet contract. Also, it is really REALLY easy to configure and get going. Have a look at the step-by-step guide listed below.
