Cisco IDS signature update vs. Snort

Greetings all

I have a question for anyone using any Cisco IDS products.

How often the Cisco IDS/IDSM update it's signatures and are the updates

comparable to Snort? Example: An exploit is known...Snort publishes an

update...can a similar update be found for Cisco IDS?

Regards

Fredrik Hofgren

Re: Cisco IDS signature update vs. Snort

Cisco does not update as frequently or completely as Snort. Cisco also tends to give much higher priority to releasing signatures on vulnerabilities that affect their own products. There are also many signatures released for Snort that never seem to make their way to Cisco from what we have seen.
