I recently saw a posting on FocusIDS regarding the high cost
of the most commercial solutions. The one mentioned was the
QRadar product from Q1Labs. Don't get me wrong, we have a
budget, we just don't have a Fortune 500 budget. :)
That would be me.. And I don’t have a fortune 500 budget either hence
that’s why I am working toward creating an opensource project N.B.A.D. tool.
It's still in the planning stages but I am working on a design, roadmap, project
goals document I plan on releasing in a few weeks to several mailing
lists in the hopes of attracting volunteers to help me code it. It would be a perfect compliment to snort IMHO.
My question is simple, are there any other commercial
out-of-the-box alternatives to QRadar? Something that isn't
going to cost me >$40,000 to deploy?
All the ones I have seen so far are megabucks (Qradar and Arbor Networks).
I will be checking out intrusense as soon as I can get a demo copy based
on everyone elses positive replies.
