many thanks for your reply, its gratefully appreciated

i have access to a number of ASA5540 & 5510s so i can set up a lab at home or in work and i'll be working with ASAs pretty regularly

what is the minimum kit i need to get some handson experience of IPS - do i need a sensor appliance or can i use the IPS functions on the IOS firewall and ASA

thanks again

The course focuses on the use of the IDM to manage and configure the device.

If you can use the IDM with the ASA/IPS-SSM combo then you will be just fine. I am not sure if you can however. You will need to check that.
