Re: Best Monitoring Solutions
Hello. I agree with the comments on SIEM and IAM.  There are solutions today in the NGFW vendor community and the SIEM communityto help with this.  Addressing "Privileged Users" to IP, matching on network and tracking elevated use.  They base line behaviors of the Active Directory or Unix accounts, and alarm based on thresholds and patterns of Privileged Users.  Not perfect, but its an important vector for monitoring.

We see lots of SIEM, SEM and the like, regulators calling for IDS/IPS on the outside, but what is the real value of just knowing attackers are knocking, when you can know that without an IDS, its simple, they are.  Unless you correlate to an event inside the firewall what real value do you get?   My preference is something like an Aristotle Insight which actually tracks activity and what gets done on the inside of the network, detect misue, abuse of acceptable use policy, fraud and problem tracking. Much better use of my limited funds and fully supports "Marrying Monitoring with IAM"!! [email protected]
