End-to-End Visibility into All Network Traffic
Since they implemented the FireEye
solutions, NTT Communications’ ability to detect, analyze and respond
to suspicious activity at endpoints throughout its worldwide
environment, and in network traffic passing through cloud gateways,
has significantly improved.
Takeuchi elaborated, “With our previous
approach to network security, defensive tools—like an intrusion
prevention system—would detect and mitigate any signature-based
threats they could recognize, but we noticed that an increasing number
of more sophisticated attacks were evading this type of technology.”
With the FireEye solutions in place,
Takeuchi and his team now have deep visibility into the
characteristics and intent of previously unidentifiable cyber
exploits. “FireEye Endpoint Security collects and analyzes extensive,
detailed logs of network traffic, which helps us ensure our customers’
environments remain secure,” he noted.
NTT Communications also has benefited
from the scalability of the FireEye solutions, which enable the
company’s security experts to monitor customer environments anywhere
in the world. “The endpoint detection and response solutions from
FireEye are extremely straightforward to manage from any location of
our choosing,” stated Takeuchi.
Equipped with FireEye Email
Security—Cloud Edition, a solution capable of preventing advanced and
targeted attacks from passing through cloud gateways, Takeuchi is
eager to build on the NTT Communications’ cloud-based offerings: “Our
next phase is to leverage FireEye Email Security—Cloud Edition in one
of our new managed security service offerings that is specifically
designed to fortify cloud environments,” he shared.
Qualities that Count in a Strategic Partnership
As one of the world’s top ten managed
security service providers, NTT Communications has a proven track
record of cultivating strategic partnerships with leading innovators
from the cyber security industry.
Summarizing his motivation for partnering
with FireEye, Takeuchi concluded, “One key quality worth highlighting
about FireEye, and particularly the company’s Mandiant consulting
services, is how reliable and trustworthy its team members are: These
are some of the most important factors to consider for anyone looking
for a cyber security services partner.”
