    Possibly you can lump the IPS material within the "Securing Networks with Routers and Switches" and the "Securing Networks with ASA Foundation" exams and get rid of the IPS exam. Then choose an elective between CANAC , MARS, and Advanced ASA.

    Do it CISCO!

    Have any of you ever worked with a cisco IPS product professionally? I have never seen one in the wild and no one I know has worked with one.

    Yep I've seen a few of them. I've never configured one though.

    We had the same 4210's that Mike mentioned... IDS's though. Then our Security guy went and purchased the TopLayer IPS solution for our campus, even though we are a "CISCO" shop in every other way. Bonehead.

    So not only do I find the information lacking, but I don't have the gear to play with. The TopLayer's are good, but the real thing is the real thing.

    I'm gonna get the SNAA done then... which will leave the IPS exam as my final hurdle to the SP... and who knows, by the time I finish the SNAA, it may be a moot point.

    The standalone devices are rare these days, typically you want to purchase the IDS/IPS module for your ASA or 6500 devices which is why this material should be lumped into the ASA exam.

    Let's also not forget the fact that the Cisco IPS devices (stand alone) cost an arm and a leg....prob another good reason you don't see too many of them.

    I wish they would focus more on ASA modules it would making working with ASA a more well cert path.

    They do! The SNAF included a lot on the SSM's, in particular the IPS-SSM and the CSC-SSM. And from the IPS material I've seen so far, prolly half the time they're talking about the mods.

    Regardless, the IPS exam should be optional. To make it mandatory... not necessary.

    I'm not real familiar with the CCSP exam set yet but funny enough my major concern is that I'm hoping you can still get all those sweet security specialist titles by completing this new track lol ie. ASA specialist etc.

    The main one is -- but they also have CiscoLive events in Europe and Asia/Pacific where they will sometimes make announcements.
