Sourcefire Adds ClamAV to Its Network Security Arsenal

Lora Bentley

The ClamAV open source anti-nalware project is now commercially backed.

 

Just months after its IPO, Sourcefire has acquired the project from its founders, according to Digital50.com. Adding ClamAV to its portfolio, which already includes the Snort open source intrusion detection/intrusion prevention system, will allow Sourcefire to extend its open source network security offerings, the story says.

 

Under the agreement, Sourcefire acquires the project, associated copyrights and trademarks, the clamav.org site and content and the project's Sourceforge.com page. ClamAV founder Tomasz Kojm and his teammates will continue with the project as Snort employees. Says Kojm of the transaction:

Sourcefire is a well respected company in the open source arena, and they really understand how to balance open source community investment with the commercial needs of their customers.... I look forward to the future growth of the ClamAV technology and community.
