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.

Security Onion works well for setting up within a Linux environment. This brings a new platform to run and maintain though. The application its self has helped to keep track of logs and vulnerabilities in the environment. Alert triage and case creation is simple to start and follow through to the end.

Cons
Fortra
  • 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.

Other vendors may have a more robust solution but for our needs, Security Onion was the one to move forward with. We have tested some of the others but the cost of those platforms makes the ROI not as desirable. There is a learning curve with Security Onion but it is worth it for the value provided.
