MS Forefront integration with Sourcefire 3D System

Sourcefire : 20 April, 2009  (New Product)
Sourcefire has entered into strategic relationship with Microsoft for interoperability between Forefront and Sourcefire’s Defense Center eStreamer
Open source innovator and Snort creator, Sourcefire has announced a strategic relationship with Microsoft to provide Sourcefire 3D System customers with greater visibility into critical threats through Microsoft Forefront, codenamed “Stirling”. Through this relationship, Sourcefire integrates its Sourcefire Defense Center eStreamer interface with Forefront “Stirling”, offering customers interoperability, context and improved insight into their network security environments.

“With the dynamic nature of today’s security threats, Sourcefire understands the importance of proper context in protecting customers,” said Martin Roesch, Chief Technology Officer and Sourcefire founder. “Sharing and correlating security events around the globe with Microsoft Forefront “Stirling” will allow us to keep our customers ahead of security risks.”

Available for public beta testing, Forefront “Stirling” is an integrated security suite that delivers comprehensive protection across endpoint, application servers and edge solutions with a central management console for easy administration and enterprise-wide multi product visibility. Forefront “Stirling” enables software, hardware, and services vendors to share and use security event information across the “Stirling” environment and the broader partner ecosystem. As a result, partners can enhance the effectiveness of their security technologies and better protect customer IT environments.

“Microsoft is pleased to work with Sourcefire to develop interoperability between Forefront ‘Stirling’ and the Sourcefire 3D System, in order to give our customers more comprehensive and responsive security across the enterprise,” said John Chirapurath, director in the identity and security business group at Microsoft. “As a leader in the IPS market, Sourcefire is an important part of this initiative, and this interoperability provides our customers with the confidence that they are receiving an increased level of protection. This supports what we call ‘business-ready security .’”
