Network Management & Intrusion Detection Systems (NMIDS) are an important part of any network security architecture. They provide a layer of defense which monitors network traffic for predefined suspicious activity or patterns, and alert system administrators when potential hostile traffic is detected. Commercial NMIDS have many differences, but information systems departments must face the commonalities that they share such as significant system footprint, complex deployment and high monetary cost. Netmates - Network Monitoring & Attack Evaluation System, which is based on Snort was designed to address these issues. It features a near real-time snort alert monitor, providing many ways to indicate that the network may be experiencing an intrusion attempt including audio / visual warnings, email warnings, etc.
