I've found recently a new product data sheet -- called Cisco IPS Manager Express, looks a bit like a new implementation of the IPS Event Viewer.
Currently the software download shows an error but everything else is present.
Short url is cisco.com/go/ime
Is anybody aware of this tool? How to download?
IME is the next generation of IEV.
It will do monitoring of IPS events, and will also do configuration of IPS version 6.1 sensors.
IME is targeted at deployments of 5 or less sensors.
IME was announced earlier this week.
It is in final stages of testing and will be available in the next month or 2.
IME will be available for download from cisco.com at no additional charge for customers with active Cisco Service for IPS contracts on their sensors.
In addition IPS version 6.1 was also announced, as well as the AIP-SSM-40 for the ASA firewall.
IPS version 6.1 is primarily changes to work with the new IME.
The AIP-SSM-40 is a higher performing version of the AIP-SSM-10 and AIP-SSM-20, and is targeted for use inside the ASA 5520 and ASA 5540.
