People Behind FireEye as a Service

The gap between security openings and skilled people to fill them will reach 1.5 million by 2020 according to Frost & Sullivan's Global Information Security Workforce study. Organizations continue to face an asymmetric battle in today's threat landscape. Attackers are well funded, continuously adapt their tactics to go undetected and only need to compromise one endpoint to compromise an organization. Organizations need to protect their entire network and every entry point into it.

FireEye as a Service can help. Let our experts be an extension of your internal security team. Take advantage of the decade's worth of threat intelligence we leverage to proactively hunt for attackers in your network. Our experts will continuously monitor your environment and alert you to the things you want to know.

Peter Smith, Lead Architect

With his interest in cyber security starting as early as eighth grade, Peter has been with FireEye (and previously Mandiant) since 2010. As a Service Architect and Lead Incident Handler at FireEye, Peter explains a day on the job as, "I work with [the analysts] a lot, finding the bad guys. Sometimes that means training and imparting what I know about the attackers, or designing tools for them to be able to do their jobs faster, and other times I'm looking for the bad guys myself."

FUN FACT: Peter is an aviation nut and if he wasn't working in cyber security he'd probably be a pilot ferrying supplies to remote Alaskan cities, or something like that!

Nicole states, "What I love most [about my job] is being able to apply what I've learned over all the different years and apply it globally for multiple different companies. I like to watch attackers evolve ... and being on the other side of the fence, feeling like I'm actually fighting them."
