Sourcefire Intros FireAMP Anti-Malware Solution


Sourcefire recently introduced a new enterprise anti-malware solution for Windows-based devices.

"The lightweight Windows-based software, called FireAMP, can identify malware and block it, says Alfred Huger, vice president of development at Sourcefire's cloud technology group," writes Network World's Ellen Messmer. "Once a specific threat is identified, which involves analyzing it on the fly through the FireAMP cloud-based infrastructure, another step can be taken to immediately figure out if that same malware has struck other enterprise computers."

"FireAMP represents the development of the anti-malware software Sourcefire acquired in its acquisition of startup Immunet a year ago," Messmer writes.
