Sourcefire Defense Center is the nerve center of the Sourcefire 3D system. Defense Center unifies critical network security functions including event monitoring, correlation, and prioritization for forensic analysis, trends analysis, and management reporting. The highly effective user interfaces have been designed by security analysts for security analysts with an intuitive lay-out and presentation, and user-definable workflows. Defense Center has an open architecture which allows it to interface with existing management consoles, such as IBM Tivoli and HP OpenView. Using Defense Center, customers can control multiple 3D Sensors from a single management console and combine security and compliance event data from IPS, RNA and open source Snort to get the most comprehensive view of event activity on their networks.
By discovering security and network information, determining its business impact, and defending networks before, during, and after the attack, the Sourcefire 3D System fully addresses the enterprise threat management challenge.
