6 Things to consider when Evaluating Intrusion Detection Systems

by Peter Lorenz IntellQ Visual Intelligence Solutions

Before spending any money, it is wise to know what you are buying. In this case, you must take time to and seek expert opinions when evaluating detection systems. Through evaluation, you will find a system that can meet the needs of your business. 

 

Businesses must be proactive when it comes to dealing with threats and intrusion. Negligence in dealing with insecurity issues can lead to huge losses. Luckily, businesses can use various systems to beef up security within their premises. To find the best intrusion detection system, evaluate the available ones. Consider the following during evaluation. 


Business needs 

Security systems are costly. Before buying one, you must be sure that it can add value to your business. Hence, you must carry out research on your business needs and the available systems. Through research, you will be able to know the business' needs and the systems that can meet those needs. That is the only way to get a good emotion detection system.


System functionality 

It is important to know how the system functions before investing in it. Intrusion detection systems are supposed to prevent unauthorized access. What happens when there is a security threat? The best systems will send information that will assist in dealing with the situation at hand. To be sure it can do that, carry out tests on several systems. 


Business network 

When buying the system, consider if the business network can support it. When installing the object detection system, the configuration of the network must be done. Apart from that, the staff responsible for running it must be skilled enough to handle it as directed by its manufacturer. That will ensure the detection security system works as it was designed.


Scalability 

When operating a business, you will expect it to grow. Business growth gives entrepreneurs various rewards like increased profits and larger markets. If you are interested in growth, ensure your selected security system can support it. Replacing the system when your company grows is very expensive. Seeking another viable system will waste time too.


The budget                                                        

Security is a priority for businesses. That makes every investment in the system worthwhile. However, the budget for intrusion detection systems must be sensible too. Some developers of face mining systems charge a higher price for their products. They also charge costly fees for installations and consultancy. Avoid spending more when there is a cheaper system.


Signature updates

Many detection and intrusion prevention systems depend on computer signatures to work. When these signatures are updated or modified in any way, they will tamper with the system's functionality. Thus, they will fail to detect intrusion or security threats. The best detection systems can function with updated signatures to continue providing security.
