The adoption of mobile and cloud computing is expanding the security perimeter of the modern enterprise, and organizations are looking deeper into their IT infrastructure to monitor for malicious activity or software. These trends are producing a growing volume of threat data to be evaluated.

Analyzing threat data can be a non-trivial expense, especially for small and midsized organizations. Beyond software licensing, there is the cost of hardware, personnel, and training. But there are some free tools out there that can help.

Title is misleading
These may and probably are good tools, but Splunk is far from free and Symbiosis is reasonably priced but not free. Why not just call it like it is. Especially now when people are reeling form euphemistic labels like "Affordable Care" , "peace with Iran" , assorted red lines etc etc.
