Meta Group on IDS

Meta Group, a firm which competes with Gartner for the ears and dollars of CIOs, is reported to have said "commitment to IT security in big business has never been stronger, with network and host intrusion detection systems (IDS) high on the shopping list." Meta sounds like they know their stuff:


"Meta vice president Tom Scholtz said organisations that had taken an intelligent approach to IDS have had no problem establishing the value of the technologies. But he added: "Those that have purchased a product without the benefit of an underlying policy and plan naturally feel like they have wasted their money, because they have." Amen!
