Dear Stockholders, Employees, Customers and Friends,

I am very sad to report that our friend, former Sourcefire CEO John Burris, has lost his battle with cancer and passed away late this afternoon. We extend our sympathies to his wife Ann, his children Jason, Meg and Luke, his siblings Joe and Becky, his parents, family and friends. John touched the lives of all he met, especially Sourcefire's Firemen who were inspired by his vision and leadership. We were enriched by knowing him and are filled with sorrow.
