What is reality?

I have heard many people told me that they have Firewall and IPS in place therefore they don't need monitoring, but can't you think logically what is reality? The simple fact -

Humans > System created by Humans

So you want to argue again, or you are actually humiliating yourself! And if you ask me what's the best IDS again, I will beat your ass and say -

Humans

Don't get mad, this is reality .....

Peace (;])
