Sourcefire to Discuss Best Practices for Security in Virtual Environments at VMWorld 2011

Sourcefire, Inc., 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. Organizations need tools that can track these changes and automatically update security. By leveraging vShield, organizations can automate the integration of multiple security products, including Sourcefire Virtual IPS, 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, August 31, 2011, 1:00-2:00pm PT 
Where:   VMWorld 2011 Conference, The Venetian Las Vegas 

Sourcefire Virtual Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) integrate 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 provides users with application detection, application control and real-time adaptive security. To provide automation and minimize administrator intervention, Sourcefire tracks when configuration changes are made and automatically removes restrictions after a specified time interval.
