Cisco Next Generation IPS (NGIPS) is #1 in the Gartner Magic Quadrant
-Deems Cisco's acquisition and integration of Sourcefire a success, both at the product and security research team levels
-Recognizes the breadth of Cisco IPS availability — NGFW, stand-alone, virtualized, in Cisco Routers, and UTMs (Meraki)
-Cites as a strength the availability of the tightly integrated Cisco AMP products, stating that Cisco is “competing well against stand alone and established advanced persistent threat (APT) solution vendors.”
