re: 5 Reasons Every Company Should Have A Honeypot
Great article and advice. There is no question, honeypots are a valuable way to gain insight into today's attack/threat landscape. However they should only be part of the biggest strategy to truly guard the organization and its assets. A complete UTM approach needs to be multipronged including education and tools.

re: 5 Reasons Every Company Should Have A Honeypot
jeremyarthur, maybe. It depends on the level of interaction you want with the honeypots. Some open source honeypot software is very low interaction and requires almost no management but your ROI will be less. These are usually application specific honeypots.

The more interaction, the more management.

Before deploying figure out what use cases you want to detect or analyze and adjust the plan accordingly.

The only problem I see is $$$ do not grown on trees. honeypots are not systems you just tern on and forget you need the staff to monitor the honeypot and not all company's have the staff to do this.
