Enables users to create custom anti-malware signatures and leverages cloud to protect all users from newly discovered threats
Sourcefire, a provider of cybersecurity offerings, has launched Immunet 3.0, which leverages a cloud-based collective immunity platform to deliver real-time protection against zero-day attacks.
According to the company, Immunet 3.0 enables businesses and users to create custom anti-malware signatures for protection against targeted attacks and offers Cloud Recall feature, which can remediate previously approved files, automatically quarantining them in real time based on new threat information.
The new Immunet 3.0 offers advancements for users and businesses to protect their PCs from Client-Side attacks, which include: custom signature creation where Immunet 3.0 users can create signatures for their specific requirements.
It also includes cloud recall feature that leverages the power of the Immunet platform to provide increased endpoint protection.
Through continuous file processing in the cloud, Immunet 3.0 can retroactively quarantine a file that was originally cleared, but later deemed to be malware, claims the company.
Additionally the new offering comes with collective immunity feature to enable users to harness the collective presence of Immunet’s 850,000 worldwide users for increased endpoint protection.
Immunet also enables users and organisations to simultaneously run multiple offerings, without the risk of system conflicts, for defense-in-depth protection, the company said.
Sourcefire CTO and founder Martin Roesch said Sourcefire’s approach is revolutionising the way consumers and organisations protect their endpoints.
"By leveraging our innovative cloud platform and enabling customers to create custom signatures, Immunet 3.0 is offering consumers and businesses the ability to take a more proactive stance with their anti-malware investments and better protect against the latest attacks that traditional solutions miss," Roesch said.
