FireEye Announces NX 10000 Threat Prevention Platform

New Product Quadruples Capacity to Scale Web-based Cyber Attack Protection

Milpitas, CA - Sep 4, 2013 – FireEye, Inc., the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, announced the release of the NX 10000, a new high-performance threat prevention platform designed to enable multi-gigabit advanced threat protection for next-generation networks.

“Malware today is targeted, polymorphic, and dynamic. It can be delivered via Web page, spear-phishing email, or any other number of avenues,” said Phil Hochmuth of IDC. “The ultimate goal of today's attacks is typically data exfiltration, which lends itself to a low and slow approach where attacks can go unnoticed for long periods of time.”

The FireEye NX 10000 unleashes the FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) engine to deliver the industry’s first threat prevention platform with multi-gigabit performance. It is a turnkey platform that can be deployed at Internet egress points to block Web exploits and multi-protocol callbacks with negligible false positives. With the NX 10000, users will benefit from:

  • A 50 percent reduction in appliance size. 
  • A 20 percent reduction in power consumption.
  • Reduced operational overhead from managing fewer appliances.

“With the FireEye NX 10000, organizations can scale threat protection and benefit from operational efficiencies gained from consolidation resulting in lower TCO,” said Manish Gupta, senior vice president of products at FireEye. “Unlike other security vendors, a key part of the FireEye philosophy is that all traffic must be inspected—not just a portion. This new product helps to better scale that vision, providing quadruple the capacity to detect attacks coming from the Web in a single platform.”
