Sourcefire Announces Certified ClamAV Support

Leading open source solution now delivers data loss prevention modules to protect against credit card and Social Security number theft

COLUMBIA, Md. -- Open source innovator and SNORT® creator, Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), a leader in network intrusion prevention, today announced Certified ClamAV Support providing subscribers fast, expert response to technical inquiries. The company is also delivering two new Data Loss Prevention (DLP) modules, enabling ClamAV users to protect themselves against credit card and social security number loss or theft.

“ClamAV is one of the most respected open source security solutions in the world, and Sourcefire is now enabling organizations protecting critical assets to implement this leading technology with the confidence that it is backed by one of the strongest support organizations in the industry,” said Martin Roesch, CTO and Founder of Sourcefire and Creator of Snort. “Many of our commercial customers and open source users are looking for solutions that can stop critical personal information from leaving their networks, but have been reluctant to invest in expensive, stand-alone technologies. By adding DLP capabilities to ClamAV, Sourcefire is providing the community with a trusted, innovative and commercially supported solution for protecting critical personal information against two of the leading forms of identity theft.”

With its new support offering, Sourcefire is delivering the commercial responsiveness required to provide large organizations with the confidence needed to implement ClamAV for protecting their critical environments. Certified ClamAV Support subscribers will now receive the same level of expertise and rapid response that Sourcefire commercial customers enjoy today. This provides both business and government organizations with both peace of mind and the ability to satisfy procurement guidelines.

“Sourcefire is providing the ClamAV community with the perfect combination of open source leadership backed by one of the security industry’s best customer support organizations,” said Tomasz Kojm, ClamAV project leader. “This combination of commercial support and new DLP rules is a significant step for ClamAV. We are excited that Sourcefire is dedicating the resources required to deliver the top tier support and innovation we always envisioned for our users.”
