The second in a series of discussions I participated in with Richard “IDS is Dead!” Stiennon, Mike Murray and Amrit Williams is now available for your viewing pleasure. Richard has been following the firewall and IDS market for a long time now and has a much deeper understanding of it than I ever will. However his experience is from the market perspective, not the real world where the firewalls and IDSs are actually being installed and used. Not that I’m configuring and monitoring either technology on a regular basis myself, but I do deal with the people who are very often as a PCI assessor. So you can imagine we have some differing opinions of where things are going and what’s really being used in the enterprise. I really need to learn to look directly at the camera.
