Most Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) can block known threats during the attack at the perimeter. However, that is not enough anymore. More and more attacks and risks are emerging from inside the network. Nor can network security professionals continue to patch the problem with another software package. Organizations need an intrusion prevention process—one that will prevent network threats before, during, and after an attack.

That is why Sourcefire created the Sourcefire 3D System™. With it, network security professionals get an intelligent, unified defense system that is:

  • -Comprehensive—integrating threat, endpoint, and network intelligence. SC Magazine compared it to 11 other IPS solutions and recognized it as the most comprehensive—and the best value.
  • -Highly automated—giving context for smarter, better decisions and automation when needed.
  • -Policy driven—the Sourcefire 3D System offers a multi-level, integrated approach that ensures thorough compliance enforcement and documentation.
  • -Infrastructure agnostic—allowing existing investments to be leveraged and not locking customers into one approach.
  • -Built on a proven technology—Sourcefire is built on Snort.
