Sourcefire in Our Data Center – The First Inline Production Deployment at Cisco
In October, we were delighted to announce the completion of our acquisition of Sourcefire. With Sourcefire on board, Cisco provides one of the industry’s most comprehensive advanced threat protection portfolios, as well as a broad set of enforcement and remediation options that are integrated, pervasive, continuous, and open. Within three weeks of the acquisition closing, we completed the first deployment into a highly secure data center and we are quite impressed with the results, to say the least! Within the first hour, we began seeing some interesting things from our network. The implementation was already giving us insights into our data center that we never had before!

Cisco Closes Acquisition of Sourcefire; What Does that Mean to You?
Mobility, cloud and the Internet of Everything (IoE) continue to change IT security making point product solutions insufficient. The old model of having disparate products securing isolated areas simply won’t protect against the dynamic threats of today’s world. In the ever-growing world of the Internet of Everything (IoE) the number of attack vectors will only increase. Today’s security solutions require a continuous approach that is much more automatic when handling security threats before, during and after an attack. The good news for Cisco partners is that the acquisition of Sourcefire is complete. With Sourcefire part of the Cisco family, we will provide partners with a broad portfolio of integrated solutions that deliver unmatched visibility and continuous advanced threat protection across the entire attack continuum.
