Sourcefire, Inc. provides real-time network defense solutions for information technology (IT) infrastructures of commercial enterprise, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, educational, and federal and state organizations. The company's appliance products and software products provide a network defense system that unifies intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, and vulnerability management technologies. Sourcefire offers Snort, an open-source intrusion detection technology. The Snort technology is incorporated into the Sourcefire 3D (Discover, Determine, Defend) product suite that includes the Sourcefire Intrusion Sensors and Agents, Sourcefire RNA Sensors, and the Sourcefire Defense Center. The real-time network awareness, or RNA, network intelligence product provides visibility into the composition, behavior, topology, and risk profile of the network; the intrusion sensors utilize open source Snort and the company's proprietary technology to monitor network traffic; and the defense center aggregates, correlates, and prioritizes network security events from RNA sensors and intrusion sensors to synthesize multipoint event correlation and policy compliance analysis. The company also provides technical support and professional services, including on-site network security deployment consulting, and classroom and online training for managing a network security solution.
