Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need some type of intrusion detection/prevention system. SNORT is one that can help identify rogue traffic based on signatures and rules. For this system to properly work though, it will need to be on a TAP or mirrored port to see all traffic on the network. This will be a challenge in a distributed network. You may need a sensor at each distribution facility to detect traffic that just stays local to that DF.

    You'll also need a resource or two for managing and monitoring such a system. It's a slippery slope so plan accordingly and built it right up front so it will work for your rather than against you.
