Cloud Security Assessments help organizations understand
cloud-specific threats and security controls while improving
detection, investigation, and response
MILPITAS, Calif. – Jan. 21, 2020 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:
FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced the
availability of two new FireEye® Mandiant® services. Cloud
Security Assessments help organizations evaluate and harden
security in cloud platforms, and Cyber
Defense Operations consulting services help organizations
achieve security transformation by improving the detection and
response capabilities of their security operations center (SOC).
“For more than 15 years, FireEye Mandiant has been at the forefront
of cyber security and cyber threat intelligence. We have a deep
understanding of evolving attacker behaviors and motivations derived
direct from the frontlines that extends across the cloud and
on-premises environments. Our Cloud Security Assessments and Cyber
Defense Operations consulting services are two new offerings to help
clients protect their key assets before, during and after an
incident,” said Jurgen Kutscher, EVP of Service Delivery at FireEye.
Address Common Cloud-Specific Issues with Cloud Security Assessments
Almost all major organizations are using or planning to use cloud
environments for a variety of reasons, including cost and operational
efficiencies. However, cloud security implementation requires a
completely different approach and specialized skills compared to
on-premises. Without the proper knowledge and contextual understanding
of cloud security, the benefits associated with the cloud can quickly
become diluted as organizations inadvertently expose themselves to
greater levels of risk.
Security Assessments are based on the latest ways that attackers
bypass cloud security measures, as observed on the frontlines by
FireEye Mandiant experts. Available on the most popular cloud-based
platforms including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web
Services (AWS), and Google Cloud, these assessments address common
misconfigurations and issues with how organizations utilize and
integrate the cloud into their existing IT and security programs.
Through tactical coaching and comprehensive recommendations,
organizations achieve increased risk visibility and enhanced
“Given the critical nature of Office 365 to our company and the type
of data stored there, it's important for us to validate the security
of the service. The FireEye Mandiant Cloud Security Assessment helped
us understand the risks, while identifying areas for improvement and
actionable recommendations. We were able to greatly improve our
organization’s secure use of Office 365 with the guidance from
Mandiant,” said the CSO of a global enterprise technology company.
Cloud Security Assessments can be customized to suit organizational
budgets and security program objectives. For more information about

Accelerate Security Transformation with Cyber Defense Operations
It’s one thing to develop playbooks and define best practices, and
it’s quite another to effectively implement those detection and
response processes into how a SOC operates. With Cyber Defense
Operations, FireEye Mandiant experts help to accelerate an
organization’s security transformation initiatives by providing
hands-on keyboard support for critical SOC roles. First, consultants
conduct an initial evaluation that helps to define the transformation
goals and objectives that will best mature the organization’s
capabilities. Examples of these objectives include building out threat
hunting programs and security metrics programs. Dedicated Mandiant
personnel will then offer technical event triage, analysis, and
investigation support, operating within the client’s environment.
Through this process, areas for maturation are identified and pursued,
helping to identify and resolve visibility gaps and procedural issues.
Throughout, knowledge transfer is continually conducted with the
organization’s existing detection and response team to help ensure
changes are effectively operationalized.
