Where’s the ROI on Security Hardware?
by Dan delaMare-Lyon - Endace Europe - Thursday, 21 December 2006.
Finally, let us not forget open source software! Many popular network security applications (Network intrusion detection systems as an example) are often benchmarked against open source software. If open source sets the baseline – why not *use* the open source tools in implementations. The open source community has delivered some leading applications in their categories, such as Wireshark and Snort. These applications are constantly developed to meet emerging needs. Performance can be scaled by adding more CPU’s making multi-gigabit applications a reality and allowing everyone to realize the benefits – from the enterprise LAN to the service provider core.
