Network IPS devices don't all handle DoS and DDoS the same, or even very 
well in some cases.  If this is a specific issue with you, you should 
discuss it in detail with your contemplated vendors.  IMHO, in general 
the Top Layer folks have devoted the most time and attention to this 
particular issue.
