Sourcefire and Newell Rubbermaid to Co-Present at 2009 Gartner IT Security Summit

Open source innovator and Snort® creator, Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq:FIRE), a leader in Cyber Security, today announced that Martin Roesch, the company’s founder and author of Snort, and Michael Wilcox, IT Security Manager for Newell Rubbermaid, a Sourcefire customer, will present together at the 2009 Gartner IT Security Summit. They will discuss the need for intelligent network security to effectively protect today’s networks from dynamic threats.

During this joint session, Wilcox and Roesch will discuss the elements of intelligent cyber security that are needed to effectively protect network assets, including complete network visibility, relevant event context, automated impact assessment and IPS tuning.
