* Tips and tricks from the Sourcefire Professionals Services Team on getting the most from your Sourcefire investment based on lessons learned in the field

"With over 700 attendees, the inaugural Virtual Customer Summit is definitely filling a need in the industry by providing unique insights and real-world tips for improving network security," said Tom McDonough, President and COO at Sourcefire.
