Immunet 3.0 introduces custom anti-malware signatures

Sourcefire released Immunet 3.0 which enables users to create custom anti-malware signatures for more accurate protection against targeted attacks and offers a Cloud Recall feature, which can remediate previously approved files, automatically quarantining them in real time based on new threat information.

Immunet 3.0 offers the following advancements:

Custom Signature Creation – While customization is available in some enterprise security solutions, including Intrusion Prevention Systems, traditional antivirus offerings continue to take a “black box” mentality to customization. With Immunet 3.0, users now have the power to create signatures for their specific requirements.

Cloud Recall – This new, innovative feature 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. The Immunet Community is updated automatically as new threats are discovered.

Cloud Recall provides an advantage over traditional approaches to solving this problem, which include sending 20,000 – 40,000 signatures down to each and every endpoint on a daily basis, then invoking a resource-intensive full system scan.

Collective Immunity – It allows users to harness the collective presence of Immunet’s 850,000 worldwide users for increased endpoint protection. This cloud-based approach enables organizations to better protect against zero-day attacks with real-time protection driven by intelligence from the user community.

Each time someone in this collective community encounters a threat, everyone else in the community automatically gains protection from that same threat in real time. Customers no longer have to rely on the isolated security of their traditional antivirus vendor.
