c0dyd asks: "Lately, computer attacks have gained much popularity in the news; however, it is not often that we hear of new software, hardware or 'appliances' that combat malicious code attacks and data intrusions. Obviously, the need is present. I've searched thoroughly for network intrusion detection and prevention systems, but the choices and technologies seem somewhat limited or proprietary-- Snort appears an obvious open source solution for intrusion detection but many users many find it lacking in intrusion prevention capabilities. What do you, the experienced network admin, use for detecting intrusions on the network and how does your network react to those intrusions?"
