FireEye Enhances Threat Management Platform with Security Orchestration, New Product Features
FireEye Global Threat Management Platform Now Orchestrates and Automates Security Operations by Unifying Complex Security Architectures, Advancing Detection and Accelerating Response
MILPITAS, Calif. – May 5, 2016 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced FireEye® Security Orchestrator™ (FSO™) — the orchestration and automation solution leading FireEye’s efforts to help customers build their next generation Security Operations Center (SOC) and reduce the impact of a breach.
Enhancements to the intelligence-led FireEye Global Threat Management Platform were also announced, focusing on detecting non-malware based email attacks, providing greater visibility into attackers’ lateral spread, guiding investigation activities, and offering high availability features for deploying FireEye inline.
“As cyber threats have become more sophisticated, the security industry has responded with complex defensive layers that force organizations to manage an overwhelming number of technologies and alerts,” said David DeWalt, CEO and chairman of the board, FireEye. “FireEye Security Orchestrator uses innovative technology to deliver automated playbooks informed by a decade of experience responding to sophisticated threats – addressing the growing resource constraints that are slowing down today’s security operations. As part of our mission to enable the faster, next generation SOC, FireEye is also the only company to now offer continuous inline protection powered by industry-leading MVX technology.”
FireEye Security Orchestrator
Based on FireEye’s recently-acquired Invotas, FireEye Security Orchestrator provides a solution for cross-vendor orchestration, automation, and a central hub for security operations processes. By unifying workflows across numerous security technologies and the FireEye Threat Management Platform, organizations can simplify repetitive, manual processes that are prone to human error.
Features of FireEye Security Orchestrator include:
- Playbooks informed by Mandiant® expertise that act as codified procedures to shrink incident response times;
- Case Management for security analysts to manage incidents centrally;
- Automation and documentation of manual processes designed to eliminate the majority of operational errors and ensure that policies are enforced consistently;
- Investigative Workbench that facilitates the ability to aggregate, search, correlate, and take action for events of interest;
- User-friendly reporting and analysis to monitor efficiency and effectiveness of security investments;
- Orchestration Deployment Services providing expertise to design and deploy orchestration and automation to maximize return on investment; and
- Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) partnerships and deep integrations with technology providers such as Blue Coat, BMC Software, MobileIron, PhishMe, Splunk and many more to enable our customers to unlock the value of orchestration and automation through an open ecosystem.
“CyberArk supports FireEye’s commitment to continuing to improve threat response capabilities for customers with Security Orchestrator,” said Adam Bosnian, executive vice president, global business development at CyberArk and head of the C3 Alliance. “As a CSC partner and through integrations of our respective solutions, which incorporate privileged account security best practices and privileged activity data, we enable customers to better detect and respond to threats.”
"Simplifying security in organizations that are increasingly mobile first demands integrated solutions that unify security architectures," said John Spencer, vice president strategic partnerships, MobileIron. "MobileIron and FireEye now provide a powerful framework that our joint customers can take advantage of to make securing their data faster and less resource-intensive.”
“Blue Coat and FireEye are committed to protecting our shared customers by working together to address their needs," said Bradon Rogers, SVP of product strategy and operations, Blue Coat. "As a CSC partner, we will ensure simplicity for customers through interoperable technologies.”

Network Security (NX)
A foundational component of the next generation SOC is always-available, real-time protection that ensures resilient defense. FireEye research has shown that inline deployments reduce alert volume up to 76 percent. However, organizations have historically struggled to deploy inline security and balance it with business continuity. As a result, environments that rely on traditional security and out-of-band sandboxes are more exposed to fast-spreading cyber threats like ransomware.
FireEye has been a leader in enabling inline protection to secure against known and unknown threats with low false-positives. Updates to NX take a step further with stateful high availability (HA) and automatic failover, creating a transparent end-user experience to prevent business disruption. This allows organizations to more confidently balance inline security with business continuity. FireEye is also the only vendor to offer this security at scale – to 4Gbps inline protection – using the MVX technology.

Email Security (EX & ETP)
High efficacy detection is also a cornerstone for the next generation SOC. FireEye is continuing to innovate both the on-premise and cloud versions of its Email Security products. FireEye Threat Intelligence shows that threats are increasingly delivered via emails that do not contain malware but instead use spear-phishing techniques – sender impersonation and credential harvesting. FireEye Email Security is designed to protect against these new categories of email threats, preventing costly breaches. Organizations can now consume FireEye Email Security alerts in FSO and use them to initiate response workflows based on the severity of the threat, assets targeted, or the context behind the threat.

Threat Analytics Platform™ (TAP™)
Further addressing the resource strains of security teams and the need for faster response workflows, TAP introduces the Guided Investigations™ feature to increase efficiency and augment investigation capabilities to decrease response time. The feature leads users through FireEye’s industry-leading investigative methods by prepopulating a series of “next step” searches that provide useful context to the investigation. Guided Investigations streamlines the pivot from search to action by utilizing predictive analytics based on specific attack scenarios to suggest five or more queries for the responder to pursue.

Enterprise Forensics (PX/IA)
Threat investigations are also enabled by the FireEye Network Forensics Platform and Investigation Analysis system, the industry's fastest lossless network data capture and retrieval solution. FireEye has expanded this solution to now provide centralized analysis and visualization, including insights into attacker attempts at lateral spread within a victim organization. Responders can gain additional context through deeper integration with FireEye Network, Email, and Endpoint Security as well as FireEye Malware Analysis. This enables them to drive more effective and efficient investigations.
