Intrusion detection is alive and thriving

Back in 2003, Gartner declared that intrusion detection systems were a market failure and would be obsolete by 2005.

Six years and 3.7 million downloads later, Sourcefire is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Snort, the de facto standard for intrusion prevention and one of the world’s most popular network security technologies. With 244,000 registered users, including 80% of Fortune 100 companies, Snort demonstrates that intrusion detection is far from obsolete.

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Here’s a nice shot of Marty Roesch, founder of Sourcefire and Snort, celebrating their tenth anniversary. I wish him another ten years of success. His products are excellent.
