Sourcefire Introduces Dedicated Advanced Malware Protection Appliance

Sourcefire Introduces Dedicated Advanced Malware Protection Appliance 
Continuous Analysis and Retrospective Security Address Malware Across
the Entire Attack Continuum 
COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 --  Sourcefire, Inc.
(NASDAQ: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions,
today introduced its dedicated Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)
appliance, which allows users to defend against sophisticated network
malware -- from the point of entry, through propagation, to
post-infection remediation. Expanding Sourcefire's AMP offering, the
dedicated appliance is built on the industry-leading FirePOWER(TM)
platform and provides increased deployment flexibility for
organizations needing immediate protection against advanced malware. 
"Given today's threat landscape, advanced malware detection and
protection discussions should extend beyond blocking/prevention and
highlight security intelligence, analytics, incident
detection/response and lessons learned," said Jon Oltsik, Senior
Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "Organizations need to
shift from tools that are mere gateways to an enterprise network
security approach for better protection against a broader range of
threats and vulnerabilities over time." 
Deployed inline, the AMP appliance delivers network protection with
malware detection and blocking, continuous file analysis and
retrospective security. The solution creates forensic fingerprints of
files to identify known malware, tracks file movement and identifies
attack targets for focused remediation. Using Sourcefire's big data
analytics, this advanced malware protection delivers continuous file
analysis and retrospective alerting, so that users can be notified of
malicious files that have entered their environment, even if they
were previously classified as safe.  
In addition to the new dedicated appliance, Sourcefire offers AMP for
FirePOWER, a license option for Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention
Systems and Next-Generation Firewall solutions. The dedicated AMP
appliance includes 100 seats of FireAMP, Sourcefire's advanced
malware protection solution for endpoints, mobile devices and virtual
networks. The combination of the appliances and FireAMP connectors
delivers unmatched visibility across the entire enterprise and all
threat vectors. Users can see how malware enters, infects and moves
through an environment, and can then respond decisively to threats
and quickly remediate. Sourcefire is the only vendor to address all
of these dimensions of the advanced malware problem. 
Customers also have the flexibility to easily increase protection in
the future by enabling application control and additional security
functionality on the same device. Today's announcement extends the
company's leadership in maximizing security effectiveness while
minimizing total cost of ownership. 
"Networks are constantly evolving and expanding and attackers are
taking advantage of any gaps to permeate a network and accomplish
their mission," said Martin Roesch, Sourcefire founder and interim
CEO. "Thwarting attacks isn't just about blocking but also about
using retrospective security to mitigate the impact once an attacker
gets in. Sourcefire's threat-centric approach to security gives
organizations continuous visibility, analysis and control across
their environment and along the full attack continuum -- before,
during and after an attack."  
In addition to its AMP offerings, Sourcefire also recently announced
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.
