| I would like to follow up with the below case...any potential from the
| following enquiry.
|
| Also, have your friend understands the Application Security module as part
| of Radware's Application Switch.
|
| If not, I can help to explain with some simple slides. This is not a full
| blown IDS...but a different approach to IDS from the switch perspective
| which can be more powerful than original IDS concept itself...we can
detect
| close to 400 attack signatures (slightly less than ISS) and drop them on
| the fly just like virus.
