I have used AIDE before and while it is extremely easy to setup, it does not support the ability to send alerts as files are changed (allows one to be aware of an intrusion almost immediately).

Hello Dan,

For auditing your entire network for patches / vulnerabilities I
recommend you use Nessus. For server protection you can use tripwire
and clamav. Clamav can detect and block most rootkits and exploit
code, therefor the attacker will not be able to execute it.
Theoretically... :-)
