Sourcefire Inc, a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, announced its latest solutions to address critical customer needs for virtualised security -- FireAMP Virtual and Virtual Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS) with application control.

The new solutions deliver Information Superiority by providing large enterprises and government organisations the visibility and control required to address the dynamic nature of constantly changing virtual deployments and evolving threats targeting those systems.
Sourcefire's comprehensive approach connects physical and virtual security elements, while also integrating network and application awareness with big data analytics for increased security intelligence.

According to Soucefire Malaysia's Country Manager, Ivan Wen, Sourcefire's virtual solutions are just the latest example of the company's commitment to protecting organisations from the most sophisticated attacks — whether on physical, mobile or virtual systems.
The Sourcefire's FireAMP Virtual protects VMware virtual instances from advanced malware and stops threats that bypass other security layers. The technology leverages cloud-based detection capabilities to analyse and block malware.

It also uses Cloud Recall to provide continuous analysis of historical file activity to discover and remediate threats that were previously missed. Designed for VMware environments, FireAMP Virtual increases efficiency through integration with the agentless VMware vShield architecture.

Wen says, "The Sourcefire Virtual NGIPS can inspect virtual machine (VM)-to-VM communications, providing full NGIPS capabilities to protect VMware-based virtual networks. It also provides optional URL filtering to reduce the surface area of attack."

"As with physical assets, security in a virtualised setting should be about more than just stopping attacks; organisations also need to continually drive visibility, control and management. Sourcefire's virtual solutions give organisations the confidence to launch or expand virtualised systems by offering insight and protection throughout their changing enterprises."
