IDS on SSG-320M (ScreenOS)

IDS on SSG-320M (ScreenOS)

Hi guys,

We're planning on buying our first bit of Juniper kit - a SSG-320M with 1Gb memory to replace our aging 3Com firewall.

We currently have a IntruVert / Mcafee IntruShield dedicated IDS sensor (with 3 ports). It's a bit long in the tooth but seems to do the job pretty well.

Due to it's age, and because a tiered security system is better than a single vendor one, my boss was wondering what the IDS on the Juniper ScreenOS is like? I'd love to put our IntruShield device in key areas (e.g. DMZ, LAN to firewall connection and the factory to firewall connection) - and then use the Juniper IDS to cover the less risky areas of the network (e.g. we have a small, Citrix terminal based remote office that'll have a site-to-site VPN ending at the Juniper)

Guess what I really want to know is..... is the Juniper IDS really up to scratch? Is it worth the extra cost? Is it actually any good? E.G is it really just a crappy desktop IDS that has been re-compiled to work on ScreenOS?
