Cisco, Community and Open Source

In July we told you about Sourcefire’s agreement to be acquired by Cisco, and today that acquisition has closed – we are now one company. This also means that we are also now one community, and Cisco has reiterated its commitment to maintaining our innovation and support of Snort, ClamAV and other open source projects, as well as its own projects. As Marty Roesch wrote on our corporate blog:

“I can tell you with certainty that this is a great match for Sourcefire, for Cisco and, ultimately, for our customers, partners and open source communities… Beyond the technology, one of the things that is important to me is that Cisco and Sourcefire both share key values that transcend our company names, HQ locations and number of employees. “

 I’m also happy to report that there will be no changes to how our communities are run or our communications, including mailing lists, snort.org, clamav.net or social media sites. Please visit the corporate blog for more details and, as always, reach out to me with questions. I will still be your community manager and I look forward to many more years of being a part of this community.
