I have been asked by my company to research different IDS solutions, both out-sourcing the service and doing it inhouse. Could anybody with first hand experience give me some info on how these systems are implemented in the case out-sourcing and doing it inhouse. I am currently looking into Symantec's IDS/IPS service but, it doesn't give much insite into what I would need for software and stuff or how to implement it. I am also looking at IBM's Intrusion Detection Services (also an out-sourced solution). As you can tell, I am not a Network Admin person, just got shoved into this roll due to lack of resources. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
