FireEye Expands Footprint in Northern Virginia’s Booming Tech Corridor
Company attracts top cyber talent through expanded presence
MILPITAS, Calif., April 10, 2019 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced the expansion of its Reston Virginia footprint with a larger office space, reinforcing the company’s long-term investment in growing cyber talent in the Dulles Tech Corridor.
In today’s environment of unprecedented attacks by sophisticated threat actors, the role FireEye has played in protecting people and organizations has scaled as well. FireEye has been growing its presence in Reston and Alexandria since 2011. In addition to housing a significant number of Threat Intelligence and Mandiant® consulting experts, the new Reston facility will be the epicenter of FireEye Managed Defense operations. Analysts will continue to monitor threats 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and aggregate these insights within FireEye products and services.
“Investing in our people and technology makes relentlessly protecting our customers from the impact and consequences of cyber attacks possible,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO at FireEye. “We continue to hire the best of the best as we work to achieve this mission every day, and our growing team of tech security experts located in the Dulles Tech Corridor is an important part of everything that we do.”
Hosting the company’s largest security operation center, the state-of-the-art building will house more than 300 employees to start, while providing room for future expansion needs. Along these lines, FireEye is planning to move into a new office space in Alexandra Virginia as well. FireEye plans to continue to hire top security professionals for all roles out of Reston, including tech and engineering, while Alexandria is primarily home to FireEye Mandiant consultants.
