Alliance creates high speed network protection capability

Sourcefire : 16 September, 2009  (Company News)
3D Sensor software from Sourcefire now available as part of Crossbeam's application processor module for improved protection on large high speed networks
Sourcefire and Crossbeam Systems have announced that Sourcefire 3D Sensor software is now available for Crossbeam's XOS 8.5 and its newest Application Processor Module, APM 8650. This configuration was recently certified by Miercom, a leading provider of independent test services, to support network speeds up to 40 gigabits per second (Gbps), enabling users to protect today's highest speed networks.

In addition to recent performance validation, the companies are also addressing the needs of their world-class customer bases by delivering new packaged bundles, with varying pricing and scalability options, enabling organizations to select the speed and pricing that best fits their requirements.

New Packaged Bundles: The companies are introducing new bundled pricing options that further increase simplicity and convenience for the end user. The new bundles include Sourcefire 3D Sensor software with APM 8650 modules to support either a Crossbeam X45 or X80 chassis. Customers can increase security by combining capabilities, such as Sourcefire IPS (Intrusion Prevention System), RNA® (Real-time Network Awareness) and a firewall, within a single chassis. With this bundle, the companies will provide integrated support with a single point of contact.


Sourcefire 3D Sensor Support for Crossbeam APM 8650: Sourcefire 3D Sensor version 4.8.2 now supports Crossbeam XOS version 8.5, including Crossbeam's new APM 8650 module. With the Crossbeam X-Series solution, 3D System customers have increased scalability and performance, delivering attack prevention at traffic speeds up to 40 Gbps with a fully populated X80 chassis..

"The combination of Crossbeam and Sourcefire provides customers with the performance and security to protect themselves against today's most malicious security threats, regardless of the network size or speed," said Jim Freeze, Chief Marketing Officer at Crossbeam. "The Miercom testing results, along with the Sourcefire-Crossbeam bundles, provide our combined customers with the confidence and tools to be successful."


Sourcefire and Crossbeam recently engaged Miercom to provide third-party performance testing and validation for the companies' combined solutions. Miercom tested configurations of Crossbeam APM 8650s running Sourcefire 3D Sensor software and verified that the combined solution running on a Crossbeam X-80 Next Generation Platform provides among the best performance in the industry, ideal for carrier-class networks, data centers and large enterprise deployments. Miercom tested Crossbeam modules running Sourcefire 3D Sensor software stand-alone and in an integrated configuration with Check Point Security Gateway R70 firewall. This testing configuration consisted of four APM modules running Sourcefire and four APM modules running Check Point. Miercom verified that the integrated solution continues to perform at speeds greater than 22 Gbps.


"Sourcefire is dedicated to delivering leading security solutions that enable customers to protect their critical assets, without worrying about performance or scalability," said Allen Male, Vice President of Strategic Accounts at Sourcefire. "As the Miercom data indicates, the combination of Sourcefire and Crossbeam provides large enterprises, data centers and carriers with a fast, reliable and redundant platform, which delivers top performance to support their critical requirements."
