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.

As specified earlier, the product is very helpful to monitor the FTP, ODBC, JDBC, SQL and remote commands. What queries are coming to the system and who is issuing the commands so that we can analyze the and restrict their access if its not required. It helped us catch [a lot of] unauthorized users.

  • Adding a user to the exit point manger and then specifying the same user to restrict for particular service is bit complex i feel, instead of that making only one entry to restriction would be good.
  • All Features are good
  • Can maintain all systems from central system.

      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.
