I do agree that using IDS as a primary meens of thwarting hackers is a
bad idea but I still beleave it should be part of the package. Depending
on one "holy grail" application will eventualy leave you flat on your
face. Thnk about it, IDS can aleart you to an agresive scan form one
machine looking for the "vunerable ports". Granted all you can do it
flag the ip at that time and watch it but at least you have a starting
point. Also when, not if your company gets cracked, don't you think IDS
will make the forensics a little easier. They are an important part of
security but I've seen to many times someone puts all thier trust in one
type of security. Planning and research is the best solution. It might
require you to strain some braincells but it'll be worth it in the end.
