I think that you are throwing away a technology because of the fact
it doesn't live up to the hype the
sales monkeys have spewed. While I will agree that IDS' are not the
end all be all, they do provide
a very important layer within the defense in depth strategy. Yes
you can evade them, and yes most
companies want to just plug them in and forget about them, but that
doesn't make the idea wrong.
I am a little biased, <grin>
