FireEye Unveils SmartVision Edition to Detect Stealthy, Malicious Traffic Inside Networks

Built with insights from the frontlines of cyber attacks - SmartVision introduces a new standard for advanced threat detection within internal networks

MILPITAS, Calif. - April 17, 2018 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today introduced a new threat detection solution, SmartVision™ Edition, that is designed to detect malicious traffic moving laterally within an enterprise network. Unlike perimeter defenses, such as next-generation firewalls and secure web gateways, SmartVision Edition uses advanced network traffic analysis to catch threats moving east-west within the network.

Every day, FireEye is on the forefront of cyber attacks, conducting investigations, gathering intelligence and tracking adversaries. FireEye product teams build solutions based on this knowledge, and frontline experts further refine these solutions in real-world situations. FireEye® SmartVision Edition, a specific edition of FireEye Network Security, is designed to counter techniques used in successful real-world attacks. Based on these insights, SmartVision reduces the risk of data theft, including stolen passwords, intellectual property and sensitive corporate data. SmartVision exposes attackers and their techniques by providing visibility into suspicious lateral traffic and detecting malware designed to steal data.

“Having the ability to detect suspicious lateral network traffic is a critical component to a complete defense-in-depth security posture,” said Jason Martin, EVP of global engineering and security products, FireEye. “Today’s attackers can bypass firewalls at ease, and once inside the network, they are extremely adept at maintaining a persistent presence within a network. FireEye SmartVision gives our customers newfound visibility into attacks, which decreases time to detection, thereby enabling earlier remediation to reduce the impact of a breach.”

SmartVision – Advanced Technology to Combat Advanced Adversaries

SmartVision combines four primary components that work in concert to detect malicious lateral movements:

  • An advanced analytics and correlation engine
  • 120+ post-breach detection rules based on Mandiant® insights into successful attacks
  • Detonation capabilities for suspicious files and objects that move laterally over Windows SMB networking traffic
  • Machine-learning data exfiltration module
Uniquely Flexible Deployment Options 

SmartVision Edition complements network environments already protected by FireEye Network Security solutions and can be deployed in mixed security environments that have existing commodity sandboxes, such as those integrated with next-generation firewalls. Organizations now have the ability to layer in leading FireEye technology to detect malicious actors that bypass perimeter defenses.

To enhance SmartVision with advanced security operations capabilities, FireEye Network Security closely integrates with the FireEye Helix™ security operations platform. The platform integrates security tools and applies threat intelligence, automation and case management to help organizations take control of incidents from alert to fix.

FireEye Network Security, SmartVision Edition is available now from authorized FireEye partners worldwide. For more information please see
