Question Is separate botnet software worth getting ?

Trend Micro has released a beta of RUBotted, a little program that watches for incoming bot related traffic.
RUBotted monitors for remote command and control (C&C) commands sent from a bot-herder to control your computer. Additionally, RUBotted watches for an array of potentially malicious bot-related activities, including mass mailing - a common activity performed by a bot-infected computer.

Just wondering if anyone uses this? Is this really needed? Should something like this be part of your security software?

Thx
