"There are many good books that discuss the basics of systems administration. This is not one of those books. This book is much deeper and more specific and fills a niche that I think needed to be filled...I think this book belongs on the shelf of anyone who has any responsibility for the security of systems, whether that responsibility is ultimate or partial. There is a lot in here, and anyone working in the field is sure to benefit in some way from the information."

"It isn't a text book, it isn't a light book to read at the airport and it isn't for those seeking an overview of network security. The book was never meant to be any of those things, it was written by techies to help other techies and in this respect, it fulfills its promise."
-- Jonathan Newell, Pro Security Zone

"Examples offer specifics, not generalities, and provide all the keys to monitoring a network system in a pick highly recommended for any programmer's collection."
-- James A. Cox, California Bookwatch: The Computer Shelf

"For those looking for an across-the-board overview, Security Monitoring provides a very practical and real-world detailed perspective of how to create a security monitoring program that can deal with today’s exceedingly complex and sophisticated security threats."
-- Ben Rothke, Security Management
