Cisco Secure Intrusion Detection Systems provides a clear explanation of why network security is crucial in today's converged networking environment, how CSIDS improves the security on a network, and how to install and configure CSIDS. The Cisco Secure Intrusion Detection System (CSIDS) is a real-time, network-based IDS designed to detect, report, and terminate unauthorized activity throughout a network. The industry's first and now the market-leading IDS, the CSIDS is the dynamic security component of Cisco's end-to-end security product more
