Sourcefire IPS Integration With Citrix NetScaler

Sourcefire : 10 August, 2010  (New Product)
Sourcefire and NetScaler are now available as virtual solutions or integrated hardware devices to provide intrusion prevention on Citrix networks
The Sourcefire Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) now integrates with Citrix NetScaler, providing users with increased application availability and protection. Delivered as integrated physical devices or virtual solutions residing on a single box, the combination of Sourcefire and NetScaler helps businesses prevent operational disruptions caused by poor application performance due to increased workloads or security threats.

"Working together, the Sourcefire IPS and Citrix NetScaler enable customers to proactively address issues that could impact the performance, availability and security of critical business applications," said John Burris, Chief Executive Officer at Sourcefire. "By combining Citrix's application availability capabilities with Sourcefire's application protection, we are empowering customers to better manage the performance and security of the assets that drive their businesses."

The Sourcefire IPS now provides customers with real-time awareness of the applications on their network, so that they can tune protection and configure Citrix NetScaler load balancing to ensure optimal uptime, performance and availability. The solutions have been tested and are being delivered as both integrated physical appliances and as virtual solutions which can reside on the same machine, minimizing the IT footprint and hardware resources.

According to a Senior Security Architect at a Fortune 100 Retailer, which uses both the Sourcefire IPS and NetScaler: "The integration of Sourcefire and Citrix provides a layered approach to security, which is a necessity for protecting our systems against today's sophisticated attacks and the Advanced Persistent Threats they represent."

"Applications are the lifeblood of any business, so any impact to performance, whether it is security or workload related, can have serious cost repercussions throughout the organization," said Klaus Oestermann, Group Vice President and General Manager, Networking and Cloud Product Group, Citrix Systems. "This integration of the Sourcefire IPS and Citrix NetScaler provides users with the ability to decrease the risk of issues that could impact performance."

This integration will be especially beneficial to both companies' leading channel programs, enabling resellers and partners to deliver the increased application availability capabilities that their customers require.
