This research first reviews the history of network security tools ultimately focusing on Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS). In this paper, products of two U.S. vendors of IDPS, Cisco and Sourcefire, are compared and their security features evaluated in order to determine whether their respective IDPS has the ability to provide a safe network environment. The author constructs a 4K&T Model, a model of five important entities of necessary information and best-practice, to explain the influences and requirements of network security. This newly created model is recommended for analyzing the issue of corporate network.
