Leading intelligent cybersecurity solutions provider, Sourcefire announced the first Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) to provide fully integrated and intelligent application control.
Sourcefire is extending its Agile Security vision by providing the world’s first NGIPS to incorporate real-time contextual awareness and full-stack visibility, together with intelligent security automation and granular application control.
Sourcefire’s application control enables companies to control access to thousands of applications and provides custom detection and control for homegrown applications. It equips customers with decisive threat-mitigating controls to reduce attack surface and to enforce use policies. With application detection and control in a universal NGIPS platform, Sourcefire customers can easily construct integrated security policies that balance access controls with robust threat prevention to comprehensively address application-layer risks.
Sourcefire NGIPS is built on the high-performance FirePOWER platform. In addition to application control, features in the latest NGIPS release include FireSIGHT contextual awareness and automation and enhanced reporting.
“The battle for network security is based on the concept of information superiority, in which two of the most critical tenets are visibility and control. A significant obstacle to establishing information superiority is the rapid pace of change – both within the IT environment and the broader threat landscape. Sourcefire offers the first true defense-in-depth solution has multiple components that work in tandem to allow us to first ‘see it’ and then ‘control it’ – and by so doing, gain the information superiority advantage.” said Martin Roesch, founder and CTO of Sourcefire.
