Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Sourcefire For Next-Generation IPS

Stocks in this article: FIRE

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the intrusion prevention systems (IPS) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Sourcefire, Inc., (Nasdaq: FIRE) with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. The company's dedication to understanding, detecting, and blocking the most advanced enterprise network threats has enabled its Sourcefire Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) solution to stand out from the competition. In addition, the firm provides exceptional customer value in terms of deployment flexibility, adaptability, and performance.

Sourcefire NGIPS delivers enhanced contextual awareness, security automation, network behavior analysis, file type detection, and custom rule creation. Moreover, the platform's flexibility allows customers to easily scale up their security architecture as their network and security requirements evolve.

"Sourcefire NGIPS can be upgraded to next-generation firewalls (NGFW) through a simple license upgrade that will not impede IPS capabilities," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Chris Rodriguez. "Sourcefire NGFW features include essential security functionalities such as URL filtering, user awareness and control, application visibility and control, and stateful inspection firewall. By comparison, competitors' NGFW products have limited IPS functionalities."

Sourcefire NGIPS is powered by FirePOWER™, the company's network-based platform. Sourcefire's NGIPS allow customers to support increasing throughput needs by swapping out network modules and reconfiguring devices as their networks grow. Additionally, Sourcefire NGIPS enables automatic updates and intelligent policy tuning that simplifies the security process for customers, creating better network protection while freeing up network administrators for other projects.

To detect new attacks and protect endpoint customer networks, the company introduced advanced malware protection for FirePOWER, which NGIPS or NGFW users can deploy by obtaining a license. The network feature works with FireAMP™, the company's host-based solution for endpoints, mobile and virtual, to address malware threats across the entire attack continuum.
