Sourcefire wins Best IDS/IPS - SC Magazine US

This week out at RSA, SC Magazine gives away their annual "best of" awards. Sourcefire won this award, citing our innovation, detection, and of course our wonderful 300,000+ strong Snort community (you all!).

While it mentions in the article that Sourcefire is "based  on Snort".  Our detection engine IS Snort.  It's the ease of use, other technologies, and GUIs that set Sourcefire apart.

We'd like to thank the Snort Community for all the bugs they file, the false positive reports, the ideas, and the criticisms. This only serves to make our IPS, community, and detection better.

Thank you all!
