Last days i am working on building up a more secure office network.
I Already bought a cisco catalys 2950 so we can have vlan control, port protection and other cisco goodies !
Now my question lies over the Perimeter and IDS, What should i get ? Should i trust a linux package like IPCOP with Snort ? Or should i build my own rules with tables ?
Should i get a cisco pix ( used one ) or a Firebox 550e ?
We have a very small office ( 10 workers max ) , but we are very worried about network intrusion.
What is the "MUST GET" for this scenario ?
I really want some Good Layer 2 / 3 security with cisco 2950 , plus an IDS and Firewall , that we can really trust !
Thanks, may be you can help us deciding !
