Network security firm Sourcefire has made available a version of its Snort intrusion prevention tool tailored to protect applications running on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) infrastructure.
Sourcefire said that Snort and its Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team rules are now available as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI), a pre-built virtual appliance ready to deploy on EC2.
With the Snort AMI, customers can monitor network activity among their cloud-based infrastructure for malicious behaviour in order to protect cloud-based applications.
Snort rules, provided by a group of leading intrusion prevention experts, are automatically updated hourly, simplifying management and protection, according to the firm.
"This new Snort service enables users of Amazon Web Services to protect the most critical assets in their cloud universe, providing an easy to manage solution that is automatically updated in real time with the latest rules," said Sourcefire vice president of business development Matt McCormick.
