The cyberthreat detection capability of a high-quality next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) is mission critical for any organization. Sourcefire’s NGIPS solution generates an "Impact Flag" for intrusion events based on target host attributes derived through passive analysis. While analysts can use this flag to focus on those events that have the highest likelihood of impacting the business, there are many situations where network visibility is limited, which can result in blind spots. In addition, patch status cannot be determined passively, which can increase the number of false positives even further and hinder auto-tuning capabilities.
