Host-Based IDS vs Network-Based IDS (Part 1)

Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is an essential tool that compliments any security suite such as a firewall and a good antivirus.  These tools are ineffective if used separately as each one is tailored to fight off attackers in specific focused areas.  It is good practice to build a security suite with well recognized reliable technologies that have been tried and tested, ensuring that the IDS application chosen suits your organizations needs closely like a well tailored piece of clothing.
