® Sourceﬁre3D System and Bradford Networks’ Access Solutions ® Sourceﬁre IPS™ and Sourceﬁre RNA Integrate with Campus Manager and NAC Director™ for Automated Remediation Sourceﬁre and Bradford When you suspect your network is under attack or vulnerable, there’s no time to Networks Integration Highlights waste.You need to take immediate action to protect your assets and minimize risk. And with today’s real-time dynamic networks and escalating threats, IT RemediationApplications organizations must work smarter. Sourceﬁ re and Bradford Networks have » Target of an attack partnered together to help you do just that. » Source of an attack » Compliance violation Through this collaboration, Sourceﬁ re’s leading Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) » Network anomoaly with Real-time Network Awareness (RNA) will alert Bradford Networks’ Campus RemediationOptions Manager or NAC Director to monitor events that require action or remediation, » Quarantine the host to its own such as limiting network access or denying it all together. With Sourceﬁ re’s VLAN » Block network access at the Bradford Networks Remediation Module, customers who also have Bradford switch port Campus Manager or NAC Director can now automatically remediate malicious Beneﬁts activity, vulnerabilities, and policy violations across all network assets. » Take immediate action— automated remediation A CLOSER LOOK AT BRADFORD NETWORKS’ SECURITY SOLUTIONS » Extend your investment » Reduce risk Bradford Networks’ comprehensive network security solutions identify and » Lower TCO proﬁle every device and every user to provide complete visibility and control. Be it in an education environment with Campus Manager, and or an enterprise environment with NAC Director, Bradford Networks provides identity management, endpoint compliance, and usage policy enforcement for both wired and wireless networks. Bradford’s out-of-band architecture avoids costly equipment upgrades or performance bottlenecks and its adaptive platform automates security operations and dynamically adapts to changing conditions. Campus Manager and NAC Director continuously enforce security policies, record detailed historical network activity, and generate reports for security threat analysis and regulatory compliance. A POWERFUL COMBINATION Leading intrusion prevention capabilities and real-time network visibility enable the Sourceﬁ re 3D System to identify threats and changes to network assets, so that users can customize and continuously monitor security policies for increased protection. Campus Manager and NAC Director automatically identify authorized users, register devices, and verify device compliance before granting network access. When Sourceﬁ re and Bradford Networks solutions work in parallel with each other, organizations can achieve even greater levels of protection against both internal and external threats, support compliance strategies, and isolate potentially damaging network anomalies. The Sourceﬁ re and Bradford Networks integration provides signiﬁ cant advantages in the following applications: Target of an attack– If the Sourceﬁ re IPS detects a potentially compromised host inside the network, Sourceﬁ re can automatically alert Campus Manager or NAC Director (through its Bradford Networks Remediation Module) to take action to protect the host under attack, thus preventing potential malware from replicating or blocking compromised data from being extracted from the network. Campus Manager or NAC Director can restrict network access by either quarantining the victimized host to its ownVLAN or by denying access altogether by temporarily (or permanently) disabling the host’s network connection at its associated switch port. By immediately taking a potentially compromised host ofﬂ ine, IT Security is then free to run diagnostics, correct any vulnerabilities or mis-conﬁ gurations, and restore the host to normal operation—all without fear of rapidly spreading malware or leaking sensitive data. Source of an attack – If the Sourceﬁ re IPS detects a potentially malicious host inside the network, it can alert Campus Manager or NAC Director to immediately quarantine that host (using the methods described above) until the host can be evaluated by IT Security.This not only applies to hosts operated by ill-intentioned users, but also for hosts already infected with malware. Now rapidly spreading malware (e.g., computer worms) can be quarantined within hours rather than days or weeks. Compliance violation – If a host violates a Sourceﬁ re compliance rule or white list, (for example: using an instant messaging application that is prohibited by the organization) Sourceﬁ re RNA can detect the violation and alert Campus Manager or NAC Director.The NAC solution can then quarantine that host until it is remediated or until the user self-remediates. This helps the IT organization reduce network risks and maintain compliance with internal IT policies. Network anomaly – Not all threats come from the perimeter. Using the network behavior analysis (NBA) capability in Sourceﬁ re RNA, customers can create baselines of “normal” network trafﬁ c and detect network anomalies (e.g., malware propagation). If RNA detects a network anomaly, for example, a spiked increase in a host’s bandwidth consumption, Sourceﬁ re can alert Campus Manager or NAC Director to temporarily quarantine the associated host until IT Security has investigated the anomaly. BENEFITS The Sourceﬁ re and Bradford Networks integration provides signiﬁ cant beneﬁ ts. Take immediate action to manage and minimize network security risk with automated remediation Extend your investment in your current solution and enhance your network security with greater levels of protection Lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) by quickly containing malicious activity, vulnerabilities, and policy violations, and minimizing damage and the time and effort required for remediation TAKE THE NEXT STEP TO PROTECT YOUR NETWORK Learn more about how you can beneﬁ t from the combination of leading technology from Sourceﬁ re and Bradford Networks.Visit us at www.sourceﬁ re.com or contact Sourceﬁ re or a Sourceﬁ re reseller today. ©2009 Sourceﬁre, Inc.
