Projects / MIDAS NMS


MIDAS NMS is a highly configurable network monitoring and network intrusion detection server. It uses a distributed client/server model that allows it to scale to very large networks, and features highly optimized Snort support that dramatically reduces the overhead of both the Snort Sensor and the alert data repository. It also supports Netsaint/Nagios plugins and Big Brother clients, allowing for easy migration.
