REVIEWED BY PHORAM MEHTA
Price: SGI-2000S, $31,900; SGI-200ANZ, $8,950
We tested the SGI-2000S IPS sensor appliance and SGI-200ANZ analyzer device (for event correlation).
Since the appliances come with IPS engines installed, we only needed to install the three management components, which we put on a single Windows server. (Linux and Solaris OS versions are available.)
Wizard-driven installation and configuration of the management server, which can manage all Stonesoft products, is fairly simple.
There's no auto-update capability, so we recommend you download and install the latest IPS signature updates (released about once per week) as regularly as possible.
