Sourcefire Inc, a provider of cybersecurity solutions recently introduced its new FireAMP enterprise-class advanced malware protection solution that uses Big Data analytics to discover, analyse and block malware.
According to Ivan Wen, country manager of Sourcefire Malaysia, FireAMP fulfills the company’s ‘Agile Security’ vision for context-aware, adaptive, and automated security solutions.
“FireAMP is not just another anti-malware product. It is a highly intelligent cybersecurity solution that has unprecedented visibility and control to block threats missed by other security layers. FireAMP represents of what your enterprise really needs to address advanced malware.
Sourcefire discovered that most enterprises had up to 10-percent of their computers infected with some sort of malware, and more importantly, they had no idea how the threats got in or how they spread in the system. To help combat this FireAMP leverages Big Data analytics to identify and score threats missed by other security layers as well as track the infected files’ movement to allow organisations to identify the entry point of malware. Customers are also protected via the outbreak control capability of FireAMP to block malware immediately.
Wen ends, “Even with the latest security technologies with all of the latest updates, most of the enterprises still suffer from malware infections. FireAMP offers visibility into the state of malware in an environment – identifying high-risk computers, threat root causes, applications which are introducing the malware, advanced persistent threats, and malware that could be unique to a customer’s environment.”
