Sourcefire Positioned in Leaders Quadrant for Completeness of Vision and Execution
It goes without saying that IT deployments, especially your security deployments, are complex and chaotic. In today's real world we know that your environment changes unpredictably and you're pressured for time, experience and resources. That's why you especially need a network security solution that is not only agile, but one that comes from a leader in the industry - with good reason.
Recently Gartner issued its latest "Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems"1
. The leading industry analyst firm has placed Sourcefire in the Leaders Quadrant.
As a matter of fact, we pioneered Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) in 2003 when we delivered real-time contextual awareness, full-stack visibility and intelligent security automation to our customers. As a security practitioner, you know how important this visibility and control is to your protection, and how critical automation is to addressing time and resource constraints. It might also be helpful to know that Sourcefire is also the only company to offer these capabilities with integrated application control.
