Sourcefire, Inc., 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
organisations 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 organisations 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,
organisations 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

With FireSIGHT, enterprises benefit from increased visibility into the
number and types of devices connecting to the network (iPhones/iPads,
BlackBerries, 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
organisations 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.
