FireEye Wins SC Magazine Awards Europe Top Honors for Best APT Protection
Milpitas, Calif. – June 14, 2016 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced it won the Excellence Award in the Threat Solutions Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection category at the 2016 SC Magazine Awards Europe.
FireEye won top honors for its Threat Prevention Platform and Dynamic Threat Intelligence™ (DTI™), which provides multi-faceted, coordinated defense capabilities to guard against zero-day attacks, unknown malware and APT attacks.
Each year, hundreds of products are entered in the Threat Solutions categories, and products are judged by a panel representing a cross section of SC Magazine Europe readership, which is composed of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets including financial services, healthcare, government, retail, education and other sectors. Entrants are narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category. This year’s awards were presented at ceremony in London on June 7, 2016.
“With the combined technology of MVX and DTI, FireEye provides a more comprehensive view of multi-vector attacks to boost threat protection against known and unknown attacks,” said Richard Turner, FireEye’s president, EMEA. “Today’s threat landscape demands superior technology and innovation, and this is what our platform delivers. It’s extremely gratifying to see our technology acknowledged by the panel of experts.”
“Cash and intellectual property are being stolen every day with values over the year running into hundreds of millions of pounds, while many millions of individuals’ credentials continue to be illegally obtained,” said Tony Morbin, editor in chief of SC Magazine. “And we have come to accept that the attacker is most likely already in our network, and if not, the chances are that they soon will be. But this situation would be far worse were it not for the information security industry and products such as the Threat Prevention Platform and Dynamic Threat Intelligence by FireEye.”
The SC Magazine Awards Europe is well-known as one of the most prestigious awards for information technology security professionals and products.
