Hello All,

Do you have any news or update on the future of Snort? Checkpoint has
purchased Sourcefire, do you have any news whether they will discontinue the
support of snort?
Check out the link which is a message from Marty Roesch. The 2nd paragraph addresses your question. Although I will point out that being Open Source, Snort is supported not only by Sourcefire but by the community as a whole.

Other than that, is there any other alternative on Network IDS? Is there any
other available version of Snort with signature update?

Please advise.

Ricci
