Ivan Wen, Country Manager of Sourcefire Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR, 23 MARCH 2011 - Security firm Sourcefire's cloud-based anti-malware solution for organisations has passed the one million user mark, said the company.
Sourcefire Malaysia country manager Ivan Wen said the solution's cloud-based model allowed users to feed back intelligence into the process. "In addition, each time a virus is blocked on one computer in the Immunet Community, all other machines are instantly protected from the same virus."
"Unlike other anti-malware technologies, IMMUNET is an extremely light-weight solution that leverages'strength in numbers' approach to ensure that once one user is protected, all remaining users are instantly protected as well," said Wen. "An independent test recently conducted by the Malware Research Group showed that the IMMUNET technology outperformed all of its competitors and successfully defended against 100 per cent of malware attacks."
He added that the company has recently announced IMMUNET 3.0. "This helps small businesses and consumers to create custom anti-malware signatures for more accurate protection against targetted attacks."
"IMMUNET 3.0, which is available for Malaysian users as a free anti-malware download from www.immunet.com, also offers an innovative Cloud Recall feature that can remediate previously approved files and automatically quarantine them in real time based on new threat information," said Wen.
