Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Sole Source #L2001090066S
Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Vendor: SourceFire, Inc., Columbia, MD
Terms: One-time transaction
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
Monday June 4, 2007
a contract for
a network intrusion detection/prevention system
SourceFire, Inc., Columbia, MD
The system will include maintenance for six months.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
IT security staff is trained in the underlying technology that powers the SourceFire IPS. Years of staff experience and successful results with SourceFire technology will provide better security for SIUC than if we had to start all over with another unknown vendor. Delays in security coverage will exist if we are forced to choose another vendor, and our investment in specialized tuning and training classes will be wasted.
