Ideally, you would want to use IPS but be aware of its limitations on HA servers:

If it's a heavy traffic server than IPS may not be suitable as per the KBA I linked above.

You can apply IPS policy but in action setting choose " log only" setting with the help of this you can identify the risk or infection source.

Hi, 

In case your system is a busy one only keep virus and spyware protection.

If you install IPS modules on those systems it may result unknown behavior.
