State and Local Governments and Education Services
Secure the civil infrastructure networks and citizens’ data assets
With customers across 63 local governments, 106 higher education
institutions, 9 K-12 districts and nearly half of state governments in
the U.S., we have developed a unique understanding of the challenges
that government and educational institutions face.
Achieve the highest level of liability protection under the SAFETY Act from lawsuits alleging failure of the technologies to prevent or mitigate an act of cyber terrorism.
Defenses for citizen data
FireEye isn’t just focused on one threat vector or adversary type. We monitor all avenues of attack and our intelligence analysts track thousands of adversaries to protect data assets handled and stored by state and local governments as well as places of learning. These might include student records, contractual and financial documents, intellectual property, personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive email correspondence.
FireEye is the first cyber security company to ever be awarded SAFETY Act certification by the Department of Homeland Security.
FireEye aims to protect civil infrastructure and put a stop to advanced cyber attacks that target educational and government institutions. Our solutions, designed with evolving threats in mind:
- Increase visibility of the threat landscape through information sharing
- Put defenses and defenders to the test through a suite of preparedness offerings
- Overcome the employee shortage gap through force multiplication, FireEye as a service and rapid response
- Keep pace with threats over the horizon through nation-state threat intelligence capabilities
- Stop advanced attacks before they achieve a foothold regardless of the attack surface
- Help teams filter the noise and address the threats that matter most through orchestration and prioritization
- Provide the fastest and most in-depth incident response services in the world
"It’s really a numbers game: I’ve got to be right every time but the attacker only has to be right just once. We have implemented the very best defenses but are equally well-prepared for the remote possibility of a breach."
