Sourcefire Expands Portfolio To Address Malware Targeting Mobile Devices

FireSIGHT and FireAMP Mobile identify mobile devices connecting to a network

Columbia, MD – June 18, 2012 -- Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announced new advancements for delivering increased visibility and control to help enterprises protect against advanced threats that result from mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) challenges. The combination of FireSIGHT® and the newly introduced FireAMP™ Mobile solution provide organizations with Information Superiority that helps them identify mobile devices connecting to the network, determine whether a device is at risk and then take measures to protect it.

As organizations seek to securely integrate mobile, and especially employee-owned, devices into their corporate enterprises, Sourcefire provides significant and critical environmental data – delivering comprehensive visibility into threats, vulnerabilities, devices, operating systems, applications, users, network behavior and files on the network. The company then applies intelligence to this data so that users can create a baseline for decision-making and rapidly adapt and respond to new changes and threats introduced.

“In today’s mobile enterprise, where BYOD is becoming the norm, organizations need an increased level of intelligence that allows them to identify risky behavior and applications on employee devices, so that they can take measures to protect corporate assets,” said Martin Roesch, founder and CTO of Sourcefire. “Sourcefire’s approach to Information Superiority provides organizations with an unparalleled level of context and intelligence so that they can take the appropriate measures to block mobile malware from spreading through the corporate network.”

With FireSIGHT, enterprises benefit from increased visibility into the number and types of devices connecting to the network (iPhones/iPads, BlackBerrys, Android devices and more), as well as the applications they are running. It then inspects mobile protocols to identify vulnerabilities and potential attacks against these devices.

FireAMP Mobile integrates cloud-based analysis capabilities to determine if a mobile application is malware, enabling it to deliver real-time protection against newly discovered threats. It also empowers organizations to block and control malicious applications, and unwanted applications, while allowing those deemed trustworthy.

FireAMP Mobile also enables users to generate powerful reports that provide important threat intelligence, specific to their environments. These reports include the top mobile malware incidents and blacklisted and/or non-whitelisted apps that have been installed on mobile devices.

FireSIGHT and FireAMP Mobile are available now.
