Martin, who has 17 years industry experience in network security and embedded systems engineering, is also the author and lead developer of the Snort Intrusion Detection System ( that forms the foundation for the Sourcefire product suite.

See Everything on Your Network

Mr. Roesch will discuss how it is possible with real-time network security monitoring—combining passive network discovery, network flow analysis, and targeted vulnerability scanning—for network security professionals to get a timely and full picture of their network. Whether for an entire enterprise or for an enclave in a specific region, building, or department, network security professionals need to continuously see—

  • Unusual or suspicious traffic patterns and composition cause by crimeware
  • Network asset profiles including operating systems and versions, services and versions, ports, MAC and IP addresses, and security vulnerabilities
  • Newly added, changed, and behaviorally anomalous assets
  • When a network security measure fails

—so that they can take the appropriate action.  No matter how much you have spent on network security, something malicious is going to get on your network.  Learn how seeing everything on your network puts you in a much better position to handle that inevitable situation.
