Open-source security vendor Sourcefire detailed its threat management strategy this week, building on four existing products to collect and analyze security intelligence.

The strategy leverages data gathering and correlation capabilities of its intrusion prevention, network behavior analysis, network access control and vulnerability assessment products to safeguard enterprise networks before, during and after an attack.Sourcefire also launched a Web-based console that pulls together security data from lower-level appliances. The Master Defense Center (MDC) correlates security and policy data from as many as 10 Defense Center appliances so network administrators can get a clear perspective on threats and policy issues within their businesses.

In addition, the company is adding a new post-connect NAC capability that will let network admins create and execute policies to define appropriate network behavior using specific configuration profiles that meet corporate compliance requirements.
