I think the cisco IDS was not snort, I forget what product they do use,
was not as flexible as snort and other packages, though I do assume that
in the 3-4 years since I last played with their IDS toy it has been
upgraded and issues with it fixed.
but, you are correct, most IDS systems do not do anything much more then
monitor the network stream. Snort and other IDS systems can be
worked/setup with other tools like the firewalls capabilites to amend the
policy in response to what is seen by the IDS in stream. But, one wants
to be careful in how they set this up, so that they avoid a sneak attack
them 'allows' their IDS/response system to denail service to their core
gateway or other resources.

OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
