Leadership Position Secured Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company as a Leader in the “Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems.”1

According to Gartner, "The network intrusion prevention system market is undergoing a period of dynamic evolution. Next-generation IPSs are available for the best protection, and first-generation IPSs are increasingly being absorbed by new next-generation firewall placements.”

Sourcefire pioneered NGIPS in 2003 when it delivered real-time contextual awareness, full-stack visibility and intelligent security automation to its customers. Sourcefire is also the only company to offer these capabilities with integrated application control.

The new report also highlights the company’s high-performance FirePOWER™ platform and FireSIGHT® contextual awareness and automation, which are foundational to both Sourcefire’s NGIPS and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW).

Based on FirePOWER, Sourcefire NGIPS addresses enterprise requirements for flexible configurations, maximum protection, and faster processing of network data. FirePOWER acceleration technology provides market-leading performance with lower power consumption, allowing enterprises better threat detection and protection while maintaining a proven total cost of ownership (TCO). FirePOWER appliances’ consistent and linear performance results make them a trusted solution for enterprise customers who need to scale their network security deployments with larger throughput models.

“After pioneering NGIPS, we continue to be committed to industry-leading innovation as we deliver on our vision of Agile Security. Our unparalleled ability to deliver visibility and control provides customers with true Information Superiority,” said Martin Roesch, founder, CTO and interim CEO of Sourcefire. “We’re very pleased that Gartner recognises our execution and vision in the market as we continue to provide our NGIPS offering to our large enterprise and government organisation customers.”
