  • Low false positive rate as long as it is properly managed/tuned.
  • Easy to manage and configure with the GUI.
  • Support is great if assistance is needed.
  • Wish additional modules were included such as FireAmp.
  • Wish it was easier to include customized signatures if needed. Required to know how to code with Snort in order to add real customization.
This is great for large and small organizations as they have different models and modules that fit every scenario.
