Focus on IDS
host sensors needed? Apr 20 2011 11:02AM

I know there is no clear answer to the below question, but I would
like to have some views and opinions.

We are considering whether to install Host IDS Sensors on webservers.
Having them is better security for sure. However, does the added
security worth the extra cost and burden to the server/network?

Before the traffic reaches the webservers, it passes from a Network
IDS Sensor, a Network Firewall, and a Web Application Firewall. This
is why we are not sure whether another layer is worth the trouble?

Thanks,
ST
