Huh. I work for Indus. And the two main areas of the contract I work on are Rockville and DC. I may have to ask around about this.

I totally thought of you and thought, I wonder if this is the company Alex works for. The dude who contacted me was Brian Cosgrove but maybe he's just some HR dude?

Yeah, I don't think I know him.

It doesn't say which NID for network intrusion. Very sad.

If applicant is only capable of monitoring one type of IDS, he or she need not apply. I suppose special exception might be made for color-blindness.

Truthfully, all of the IDS monitors look pretty much the same. As long as you don't have to configure the suckers, enh.
