Open-source antivirus tech may get commercial help

Software

eEye's Blink intrusion-prevention product includes system- and application-level firewalls and protects computers against phishing, spyware and exploitation of known vulnerabilities. "Antivirus is the only missing piece," Ross Brown, eEye's chief operating officer, said in an interview with CNET News.com.

Blink is used by about 250 organizations worldwide, including the U.S. Army and the Department of Homeland Security, according to Brown. Some want the product to include antivirus support, so eEye is considering its options, including adopting the Clam AntiVirus project. "It seems like a good marriage for us," he said.

If eEye picks the open-source technology, it plans to improve the software. Some eEye developers would work on real-time and file-scanning capabilities, Brown said.
