If a colleague was looking to tighten down their network I can easily recommend Snort to them. It gives you some more peace of mind knowing that its always scanning traffic for malicious looking code. Even things your major firewalls and security hardware might miss, Snort has picked up. Its an easy recommendation for me.

Palo Alto Networks

  • IAM control need enhancement as there are few features missing
  • Support on all Container solution such as Pivotal PCF
  • Number of Security Policy for scanning is less and required more policy to identify a security issue
  • Cloud is not hosted in India
  • Firewall Policy on Container required some enhancement for blocking communication between workload
  • Enabling Proxy for connecting on-prem workload container to cloud
  • Solution should not require write access to a cloud account. It should have capabilities of using existing cloud API for remediation or making changes on Cloud

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      For our organization, the Cisco defense in depth concept works the best. While Cisco can be made to work with other vendors, we have found the best in depth protection by integrating Cisco products for maximum visibility. We had a Barracuda Web Filter, but it was difficult to maintain when you had limited scope on what you could block, so we created a whitelist only setup which required a lot of additional manpower. This wouldn't have covered new threats with DNS spoofing and the like. Sourcefire also integrated with our anti-malware platform (Cisco AMP) for even better visibility on what may be happening on the end users workstation. We are planning on adding in Cisco ISE to complete the approach and possibly stealthwatch to cover our bases in the future. The Palo Alto gear was interesting, but it was priced far out of our range.
