Likelihood to Recommend

Snort

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.

This software is well suited for engineering firms where different staff are working on a same design or document file. And this software would only serve its full potential if used in a mid-size to large company. It would be less utilized in a small firm where file sharing can be done in a local server.

Cons

Snort

  • Due to the extensive interface, it can be quite overwhelming to try and manage the product. There are many different places to go to set up individual items. It would be nice to simplify the interface down a bit
  • Upgrades can be somewhat hazardous. I think they are working to get the upgrade process streamlined, but currently moving major version (5.x to 6.x) there was a lot of additional work outside of the UI that if not done correctly can tank the system, requiring a fresh load or restore from backup

  • Right now ProjectWise must be installed after installing all other software that would be integrated to it. This should be addressed so that any integrations can happen after the fact.
  • Integrations with more variety of file extensions
  • Easier user interface in navigation explorer

Alternatives Considered

Snort

Sourcefire vs. TippingPoint was a no-brainer for us at the time of deployment. Sourcefire has a more well-defined API using REST that can be leveraged for automating tasks. TippingPoint was just releasing an API that was limited. Also at the time, TippingPoint could not meet our 10Gbps network requirements as Sourcefire could with their 8350 appliances.

Vault is just for Autodesk files, but the check-out/check-in system is the same. ProjectWise covers more comprehensive scope of file extensions that can be used by companies of any business field. But it can also see improvements where replacing a file that is referenced by other files can be as simple as saving a file with a same name.
