In my experience, unfortunately network engineers will always distrust the
piece of equipment they do not control.

You have to take in consideration the differing mind sets of Network
Engineers and Security Engineers, Network Engineers are all about
'Availability' whereas Security Engineers are all 'Integrity &
Confidentially'. Once you have a strong working relationship between the 2
teams, you are on the way to solving your issues

So the answer is not to immediately consider changing the equipment you
have, but to enhance the working relationship between your outsource company
and your network engineers, to enable them to discuss and analyse what is
going and the changes that any devices can make to your network operations.
It is not the device on the network that has the greatest impact, but its
configuration

Subject: IDS causing troubles

Hello,

We have the following problem. Now and then, the IDS will cause
disruptions to the network, especially after updates. We have an IBM
(ex ISS) Intrusion Detection System with a few network sensors and
several host sensors. The IDS is not managed by us but we have it
outsourced.

The disruptions mentioned above cause our network engineers extreme
dissatisfaction (and anxiety) about the IDS and they would "burn the
damn thing", if they could. We have 2 - 3 serious issues, causing
downtime, per year.

My questions are:

- Are any of you experience the same issues?
- Is these disruptions common to others or should we seriously
consider replacing the IDS and/or the outsourcing company?
- Could this be an issue with our network infrastructure?

I will appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks,
ST
