Firewall Transparent Mode with IPS

Hello,

If you have the separate hardware of IPS then, place the IPS in between Router and firewall.

you can use the IPS in inline and promiscuous mode.

In inline mode all traffic will pass through the IPS first then after inspection will move to firewall.

And if you are using the IPS in promiscuous mode then the copy of traffic will send to the IPS and after that inspection will done.

Thanks.
