FireEye Expands Security Platform: Offers Customers One Solution to Detect, Contain, Resolve, and Prevent Threats
MVX-based Security Platform to Include New Capabilities for Intrusion Prevention, Endpoint Protection, Analytics, and Managed Services
FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced an expanded FireEye® Security Platform that is designed to give customers one solution to go from threat alert to remediation. The newly enhanced platform incorporates endpoint protection and managed security services from recently acquired Mandiant, as well as new analytics and intrusion prevention capabilities. Attendees at the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco will be able to view demonstrations of the new platform at the FireEye booth on February 24–27, 2014. The new products and services are expected to be generally available during the first half of 2014.
Intrusion Prevention System
The new intrusion prevention system will address the shortcoming of traditional IPS solutions by applying the FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) technology to validate attacks and minimize the time and resources security teams spend investigating false alerts. Users get actionable insight from validated alerts so they can focus on alerts that present the greatest risk and accelerate incident response. By adding intrusion prevention capabilities to the FireEye Security Platform, organizations can get a more comprehensive view of an advanced attack.
Endpoint Threat Detection & Response
The FireEye Security Platform now incorporates Mandiant’s endpoint threat detection and response products (formerly sold as Mandiant for Security Operations). FireEye customers will now be able to confirm when network and email alerts result in compromise, make faster and more accurate decisions about incidents, and contain impacted devices with a single click, even when they are outside of an organization’s network.
New threat analytics capabilities will allow security teams to apply the FireEye threat intelligence to security event data generated from their existing security infrastructure so they can find and scope attacks as they are unfolding. This cloud-based solution is designed to perform real-time correlation of event logs against the FireEye threat intelligence to identify when attackers are active in your environment. The system delivers prioritized alerts to help accelerate incident response as well as manages incidents to improve efficiencies in assigning, tracking, and resolving events.
Managed Defense™ Subscription Services
New subscription services build on the FireEye continuous monitoring subscription service by offering additional expertise from Mandiant’s Managed Defense service. Organizations will now be able to choose from an expanded menu of monitoring and protection services and draw on FireEye security analysts to actively hunt for adversaries to find and stop attacks as they begin to unfold.
The expanded FireEye Security Platform was introduced to partners last week at the FireEye annual Momentum conference in Las Vegas.
“FireEye is enabling us to address new layers of security infrastructure with the advanced technology that made their core products so effective,” said Brandy Peterson, CTO, FishNet Security. “The new platform will allow us to approach our customers with the right mix of new technology, updates for outdated products, and services to help protect them from today’s advanced attacks.”
More information on the new products will be available in the coming weeks and at the 2014 RSA Conference on February 24-28, 2014 in San Francisco, CA.
