Information Security for the Rest of Us

With the high number of computer attacks growing in complexity, data centers need new and faster "sniffers" with alerts to make sure data traveling through the LAN / WAN are clean and free of malicious code.

General estimates say an above average hacker should have up to 12 hours from the time of intrusion to response. Because of this most of the resources, i.e. system administrators' skills will not thwart a successful attack. If the time between the intrusion and response is 6 hours or less, a successful attacks difficult. An automated IDS with real time detection and shorter response time provides the best defense.

Most never see it coming and must deal with the "incident" or "crisis" after the fact.
