What is the difference between Bro, Snort, and Suricata?


Ideally, each of these solutions has its own unique strength. A rules-based solution is great for known threats, and having a solution that is compatible with Snort Rules – one of the largest categories of public and private repositories of threat intelligence – is certainly beneficial. Suricata allows for high-performance traffic inspection, which means you are able to process more rules against larger volumes of traffic.
