Security Monitoring with Cisco Security MARS
Author: JT Smith
Cisco's MARS (Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System) is a hot topic just now. This book's back cover touts it as the "next-generation Security Threat Migration system (STM)" and further states, "easy-to-use family of threat mitigation appliances enables you to centralize, detect, mitigate, and report on priority threats by leveraging the network and security devices already deployed in the network, even if the devices are from multiple vendors". That's a tall order, but Cisco Press would have to be out of its collective mind to publish something and not be able to deliver...wouldn't it?
