Hi Snorters,

does anyone know where to find comparisons between
snort and other
(commercial) IDSes like Dragon, RealSecure and
CyberCop? I would 
objective statements including but not limited to
flexibility, costs,
possibilities, false alarms, tools, expenditure of
time to implement in
production environment, advantages/disadvantages
compared to snort, ...

Also some success stories would be fine.

Please don't tell me: "Snort rules" etc. since I know
and use it but 
are still some people who think Open Source is
something not for real
production environments.
