yes you may create your own signature using (Customer signature Wizard) , there are around 60000 default signatures approx

Are you sure about that figure? I would expect something like 3000 signatures.

And yes you can create your own signatures, clone/modify existing signatures. There is even a wizard which lets you do this.

is around 60000 or 3000?

these are very different.

an important thing of an intrusion system

is number of rule that supported and the status of rule update engine.for example in snort we have currently around 15000 rules and update around 100 rules per month.i want to know about update support and number of cisco ips rules that currently any related link that published from cisco systems?
