IDS 4215 Sensor with 4FE interface option

Hi,

This box is capable of monitoring up to 5 network segments. Is it advisable to use the same appliance (due to budget constraint)to monitor the external, DMZ and internal network ?

Thank you.

Vince

Re: IDS 4215 Sensor with 4FE interface option

Using the multiple monitoring interfaces, you can provide simultaneous protection for multiple interfaces. If you are worried about possible security breach by connecting to multiple interfaces, I don't think that should be a problem since the traffic is not routed by the sensor. For additional information on sensor placement you could refer to http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/csids/sensor/7016_04.htm#52942.
