Attendees to Learn How to Leverage vShield to Automate Security in Private and Public Clouds

Wokingham, UK – August 22, 2011 - Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), the creator of Snort® and a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announced that Richard Park, Senior Product Manager, will share best practices for leveraging VMware vShield to automate security in virtual and cloud environments at the 2011 VMWorld conference. During this presentation, Park will also provide examples of successful automation in both private and public cloud environments.

Due to the dynamic nature of virtual and cloud environments, traditional static security solutions cannot keep up with the continuous changes. Organisations need tools that can track these changes and automatically update security. By leveraging vShield, organisations can automate the integration of multiple security products, including Sourcefire Virtual IPSTM, for better policy enforcement and increased visibility into virtual and cloud environments.

“Policy Enforcement in Virtual Environments Through vShield Integration”
Who: Richard Park, Senior Product Manager
When: Wednesday, 31st August 2011, 1:00-2:00pm PT
Where: VMWorld 2011 Conference, The Venetian, Las Vegas, USA

Sourcefire® Virtual Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) integrates with VMware vShield App and Edge. The integrations enable Sourcefire Virtual IPS to configure these vShield products to dynamically restrict any policy-violating activity within a customer's virtual environment. The Sourcefire Virtual IPS integrated with VMware vShield products provide users with application detection, application control and real-time adaptive security. To provide automation and minimise administrator intervention, Sourcefire tracks when configuration changes are made and automatically removes restrictions after a specified interval.
