iSIGHT and FireEye: Ushering in a New Era of Intelligence-Led Security

At FireEye, we’re on the front lines of an increasingly sophisticated threat environment. Our adversaries are sophisticated groups that use every available tool - from open source malware and the cloud to boots on the ground – to execute more complex attacks against their victims. We're excited to announce the acquisition of iSIGHT Partners, because collecting as much intelligence about threat actors as possible is key to effectively keeping your organization secure.
We call this intelligence-led security, and it’s a model that the world’s most secure organizations - from governments to critical infrastructure providers and global financial institutions - have started to deploy. With this announcement, we’re making it easier for these secure organizations to implement intelligence-led security while bringing the benefits of better intelligence to every FireEye customer, no matter their size or security capabilities.
iSIGHT has become the leader in actor-based threat intelligence. The iSIGHT intelligence network monitors and mines global cyber threat developments and thousands of threat actors. iSIGHT’s nearly 350 dedicated staff includes more than 250 cyber threat intelligence experts across 17 countries, covering 29 languages. Together with our MXV technology collecting machine-based threat intel and our Mandiant services team capturing victim-based intelligence, we are able to monitor the entire attack lifecycle and create the world’s most advanced and comprehensive cyber threat intelligence operation.
This promises to usher in a new era of intelligence-led security, with our cyber threat intelligence capability leading the way and rivaling even the largest intelligence operations in the world. Existing iSIGHT customers will continue to have access to their current iSIGHT intelligence products. Soon, we’ll have more offerings available to customers interested specifically in security. And what’s really exciting is this new depth of intelligence makes the entire FireEye platform more effective at detecting attacks and providing the quality alerts that FireEye is known for – with even more context.
