Pros: Cisco's firepower services based off Snort are all the best things about Snort backed by a best in business solution provider like Cisco. Flexible and customizable to a fault and still, after all these years one of the best IDPS solutions on the market. What isn't to like?

Cons: Largely remediated in their latest updates, combineing Snort + ASA on the FTD codebase was initially VERY buggy. The latest updates from Cisco within the last 6months have turned it into a much more stable beast.

Overall: Love Snort! Thankful it lives on and is just getting better under cisco

Pros: Snort is the best IDS I have used.It provides data protection and prevent intrusion very effectively.The main thing I felt is the easiness of this product.It is very easy to install and use.And also it is secure and cost effective.Customized rules make it easy to use.

Cons: Even if installation and basic set up is easy, things become difficult when we go depth. To include threats specific to our environment is little difficult.

Overall: I have been using this product for the last 1 year.And I like the way it is being integrated. I already recommended this product to my colleagues.Thank you for the team who are behind this product.

Pros: Snort is great detection tool for your infrastructure and basically it can analyse your network traffic and detect suspicious behavior.

This software can save your money at the end, because you find out very quickly what is happenning in your network stack.

Cons: If you want update Snort rules definition, you have to do manually or via your script. As I know, there is no way how to do it via RPM/DEB packages or with BIN :-/

There are community rules (free) and also non-free rules.

Overall: We choose Snort because it suite to our needs and can be used free with community rules updates.

Pros: I'm a huge fan of Cisco and their solutions. Snort is another great add-on to monitor traffic analysis. I always suggest training or working alongside your Cisco partner to ensure you're getting the full benefit of your solution.

Recommendations to other buyers: Snort is a great defense solution and I have no complaints. Again, I suggest you work with a Cisco expert to learn how to utilize the tool to it's fullest.

Pros: Snort is a staple in the security field. It is very aggressive in intrusion prevention and detection. This is a must have for compliance.

Cons: Since snort is open source and free, it isn't as clean as it could be. There are other solutions out there that look better.

Pros: This implementation works pretty good providing signatures updates (using Talos) and some great logging capabilities (using Syslog).

Cons: This product is not exactly stable and requires some more maintenance from Cisco - we wouldn't be using it if we had more spare time.

Overall: This product helped us implementing IPS/IDS faster.
