It has been 6 months back when I heard about Suricata and now there is another development called Smooth-Sec to simplify the process to run this IPS/IDS.

What is Smooth-Sec?

Functionality is the key point that allow to deploy a complete  IDS/IPS System up and running out of the box within a few minutes, even for security beginners with minimal Linux experience.
