Wokingham, UK – 8th February, 2012 -- Sourcefire, Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it has signed COMPUTERLINKS, the next generation distributor of IT security, network performance and internet technology solutions, to extend its reach into the UK reseller market.

“Our customers need dynamic defenses to keep pace with today’s threats,” said Anthony Perridge, Channel Director for EMEA at Sourcefire. “There is an increasing requirement for more Agile Security™ that leverages contextual data when responding to threats. Sourcefire’s technology is uniquely designed to respond to the myriad of emerging threats that continue to impact businesses today.’’

COMPUTERLINKS has more than 20 years of experience as a Value Added Distributor of IP-based business solutions operating across Europe, Australia, The Middle East, Asia and North America. COMPUTERLINKS will distribute the entire Sourcefire solutions portfolio, which has expanded with the recent introduction of Sourcefire’s Next-Generation Firewall and Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems with Application Control. COMPUTERLINKS will also distribute Sourcefire’s new FireAMP advanced malware protection solution for enterprises.

“The Sourcefire relationship with COMPUTERLINKS is compelling for both companies. We will leverage COMPUTERLINKS’ strong relationships and expertise within the specialist security reseller community to cover the UK. COMPUTERLINKS, already a Sourcefire distributor in Sweden, Australia and the U.S., will be enabled to further expand next-generation network security and enterprise advanced malware protection to resellers in a new region,” Perridge continued.

David Caughtry, Director of Core Technologies for COMPUTERLINKS UK comments on the relationship with Sourcefire:

“The emergence of new technologies such as virtual and cloud computing and the consumerisation of IT has created new security challenges and opened networks up to a greater number of threats. It is no longer enough to just look for known threats, hackers are being more creative and security needs to be agile and adaptive to keep up with these constant changes. We believe that Sourcefire offers a best-of-breed portfolio of security solutions and we are delighted that Sourcefire has decided to partner with us in the UK as it further strengthens our existing relationship across the COMPUTERLINKS Group.”
