Sourcefire releases Cloud-based security product

FireAMP provides advanced malware protection

Cybersecurity solutions provider, Sourcefire, has released its latest security product, the FireAMP advanced malware protection.

FireAMP uses a Cloud-based platform and big data analytics to provide malware protection that can either be used as standalone, or as a complement to existing security measures deployed across an enterprise.

The complementary version is targeted at enterprise businesses and organisations such as banks and governments, while the standalone version is for consumer grade home users.

According to Sourcefire security engineer, Gary Spiteri, a single layer of security is not sufficient in addressing the problem of malware.

“Clients need visibility to the end point and control to block advanced malware which is missed by other security layers,” he said.

The solution works real-time and displays areas of attack in red. It provides root cause analysis of how it got in and moved across the organisation.

File attributes are sent to FireCloud which then analyses them to identify malware. Once identified, they are displayed in the FireAMP management console.

It aims to provide security engineers with enough information to control the outbreak at a client level and block further advances by allowing users to write signatures, retrospective remediation and outbreak control.

Spiteri said that such an approach was developed to combat the risks posed by malware and this, in due course, would impact on the kind of security solutions people seek to buy and sell.

The software is complimentary to other anti-virus software users have previously installed.

“From a channel perspective, we are quite focused on Tier 1 resellers,” he said.

FireAMP advanced malware protection costs starts from $29 per seat annually.

This single price includes 24x7 platinum technical support, all maintenance releases and content updates, the Sourcefire hosted FireAMP Management Console, and access to Sourcefire's FireCloud analytics platform.

It is available from Computerlinks.
