Cisco announced a definitive agreement to acquire Sourcefire, a provider of intelligent cybersecurity solutions.

Cisco and Sourcefire will combine their products, technologies and research teams to provide continuous and pervasive advanced threat protection across the entire attack continuum – before, during and after an attack – and from any device to any cloud.

Mobility, cloud and the evolution of the “Internet of Everything” are drastically changing today's IT security landscape, making traditional disparate products insufficient to protect organizations from dynamic threats.

Sourcefire delivers innovative, highly automated security through continuous awareness, threat detection and protection across its industry-leading portfolio, including next-generation intrusion prevention systems, next-generation firewalls, and advanced malware protection.

The acquisition of Sourcefire adds a team with deep security DNA to Cisco and will accelerate delivery of Cisco's security strategy of defending, discovering, and remediating advanced threats.
