Since MARS is collecting information about your network traffic, the layout, etc, it should be placed into your management network. If you do this all that important information will not traverse your data networks which are susceptible to packet captures. You can also restrict access to the device with an ACL on the VLAN interface allowing only the necessary personnel to the WebUI.

Hope that helps.
