Professional Services Experts Enable More Effective Response Across
the Threat Lifecycle 
COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 --  Sourcefire, Inc.
(NASDAQ: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions,
today announced it has expanded its advanced malware protection
offerings to include new Incident Response Professional Services that
assist customers in addressing advanced malware challenges. The
services enable customers to clearly identify an event, evaluate the
risk and determine the most effective approach to remediate.
Experienced in incident response techniques, methodology and the
actions of malicious code, the Sourcefire Incident Response Team
helps customers eliminate uncertainty and make educated decisions for
better protection -- before, during and after an attack. 
"Given the inevitability of a security breach, large organizations
must supplement Advanced Malware Detection/Prevention network and
host-based controls with effective and efficient incident response
policies, processes and metrics," said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal
Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).(1) "Many security solutions
were designed for advanced malware detection and blocking alone, and
lack the intelligence and integration necessary for incident
detection and response. One notable exception of products and
services comes from network security leader Sourcefire." 
The Sourcefire Incident Response team assists customers in
diagnosing, identifying and remediating risks using Sourcefire
technology. Sourcefire advanced malware protection for FirePOWER(TM)
and FireAMP(TM) use security big data analytics and collective
intelligence to deliver integrated, advanced malware protection from
the network to end-devices. The Incident Response team helps
customers leverage the intelligence these solutions provide,
including forensic data, continuous file analysis, and visibility
into file trajectory and behavior, to make more informed security and
incident response decisions across the entire advanced malware
Using best practices for incident response and a structured approach
to incident evaluation, the Sourcefire experts act as an extension of
the customer's team to identify risk and minimize it in the future.
Services include incident investigation to determine the method(s) of
attack employed by the attacker throughout the course of the
incident; countermeasure development to detect and stop attacks;
assistance in deploying countermeasures according to best practices;
and validation of countermeasure effectiveness and recalibration as
needed to ensure ongoing protection.  
"Advanced malware protection is not just about having the right
technologies in place but also the right response when the
technologies identify an event," said Jonathan Goldberger, vice
president of professional services for Sourcefire. "Our incident
response service helps our customers bridge the knowledge and
experience gap so that they can take a more proactive stance to
identifying, mitigating and eliminating risks using the intelligence
from FireAMP and advanced malware protection for FirePOWER."
