NASDAQ OMX Leverages FireEye Threat Prevention Platform To Strengthen Defense Against Cyber Attacks

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber attacks, and NASDAQ, the inventor of the electronic exchange, today announced that NASDAQ OMX (NASDAQ: NDAQ), the world’s largest exchange company, will leverage the FireEye® Threat Prevention Platform to boost defenses against cyber attacks on its exchanges. The FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) engine will also be tapped to strengthen security against Web, email, and file attacks.

“We are proud to have NASDAQ OMX as a customer,” said FireEye CEO David DeWalt. “Any computer system is vulnerable to attack and protecting exchanges from online attack is a responsibility we take seriously. Attacks on exchanges are very attractive to nation-states, cybercriminals and hacktivists. Our own experience shows that financial institutions are the third-most targeted industry worldwide.”

“Cyber security is a global concern and attackers never rest,” said Brad Peterson, chief information officer, NASDAQ OMX. “Leveraging the FireEye Threat Prevention Platform for our own exchanges is a clear indication of our dedication to maintaining a resilient and robust cyber security program.”
