Sourcefire 3D1000


The Sourcefire Virtual 3D1000 Sensor™ extends the 3D System to far corners of the network where IT security resources don't exist or the deployment of physical 3D Sensors is impractical. Virtual 3D Sensors also provide the capability to inspect VM-to-VM communications, providing the same protection as their physical sensor counterparts. The Virtual 3D Sensor offers support for inspection of network traffic at speeds up to 45Mbps.


Sourcefire is a world leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions. Our flagship family of intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) lies at the heart of our security solutions portfolio.

Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) and IPS: For large networks with dedicated security teams, Sourcefire Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) includes network, application, behavior, and identity awareness for improved visibility and automation. For security teams that need robust protection features without awareness, we offer Sourcefire IPS.

Sourcefire IPSx™: For smaller networks managed by network administrators and IT generalists, IPSx secures networks and meets compliance mandates with minimal administrative attention.

All Sourcefire 3D Sensors for NGIPS, IPS, and IPSx operate in either inline intrusion prevention (IPS) or passive intrusion detection (IDS) modes and come with fail-open capabilities standard to safeguard constant network availability.

Complementary Sourcefire Products 

Centralized Management: The Sourcefire Defense Center® centrally manages Sourcefire IPS sensors and enables you to categorize events, generate recurring reports, schedule automated Snort rule updates, configure policies, and display customizable dashboards to quickly communicate sensor feedback.

Virtualization: The Sourcefire Virtual IPS™ and Sourcefire Virtual Defense Center™ are available for VMware and XEN platforms. These virtual appliances enable you to inspect traffic between virtual machines (VMs) and simplify your deployment and management of sensors at remote sites where resources may be limited. Plus, you can mix and match physical and virtual Defense Centers and sensors to fit your needs.

SSL Inspection: Sourcefire SSL Appliances decrypt SSL traffic at up to 2Gbps line rate to enable existing security appliances to effectively inspect SSL traffic and then place the SSL-encrypted traffic back on the network for its final destination. SSL Appliance operates transparently on the network and supports both passive and inline network configurations.

Anti-malware external linkMost anti-malware products slow down an endpoint and require large downloads of the latest detection. Immunet™ provides accurate, lightweight end-point protection by moving detection and analysis to the cloud for true, real-time protection. Try Immunet today by itself or run it alongside your existing antivirus or anti-malware solution.
