Hi all,

        We are looking for a solution that requires both Load Balancing and IDS
capabilities. This can be a integrated solution or not. I found that
RadWare load balancing systems comes with an Application Security module,
that can detect and stops a great number of attacks, like port scanning,
ddos, BOF, and common exploits.

        But I would like to hear from you if you have any experience with this
module. Is it a good IDS? How if you compare it with Snort or RealSecure?
Did you think that another strong IDS systems is still needed?

Thanks in advance,
