Sourcefire, Immunet partner to offer cloud-based antivirus protection

Improves user protection by power of social networking

By CBR Staff Writer

Sourcefire, a provider of Cybersecurity offerings, and Immunet, a developer of antivirus technologies, have entered into a partnership to offer a free Windows-based version of the ClamAV antivirus software.

The companies said that the ClamAV for Windows leverages Immunet’s cloud-based Collective Immunity technology, linking together a user’s network to identify new threats in real-time and provide protection across the product’s user-base.

Through Collective Immunity, ClamAV for Windows users are linked to a global community to harness a collective knowledge-base for securing their PC. ClamAV for Windows can be used as a stand-alone, host-based antivirus software or in conjunction with a pre-installed software provide enhanced detection for the latest malware threats, Sourcefire said.

Matt Watchinski, senior director of the vulnerability research team at Sourcefire, said: “The relationship with Immunet takes ClamAV’s protection a step further. Immunet’s unique, cloud-based approach provides consumers with a new method for protecting against threats. By using ClamAV for Windows, customers have the confidence that they are receiving the same level of security as many global enterprises.”
