Other Services and Recommendations
Proactive Support is available by default for some FireEye products.
Through Proactive Support, FireEye receives certain information from
the customer’s FireEye product, including:
Operational Information, including version information for
the Operating System (OS), patch levels, guest images, and security
FireEye License Information for content delivery and support
Appliance Health including status information about
environmental variables, such as operating temperature, components
such as fans and hard disk drive, along with System Activity Report
Appliance Statistics. Basic statistics about the appliances
such as number of agents (for endpoint products), IOC count and
number of host sets created.
Throughput Measurements. For customers who have purchased
network Products, monitoring of volume of throughput for each
appliance is provided, which helps determine whether the FireEye
appliance is running at optimal capacity and can also help identify
detection efficacy, debugging deployment issues, and capacity
Statistics of Critical Subsystems Capacity. Monitoring of
critical subsystems such as interface status, packet counts, number
of flows, broken or asymmetric flows, binaries, packet loss,
protocol-based stats, memory usage, and kernel level information, to
help determine optimal operation.
In some cases, Proactive Support triggers a support case, enabling
the Customer to review system health information and take corrective
action where necessary.
Customers purchasing 1-way DTI content delivery who do not wish to
receive Proactive Support must notify FireEye that they wish to
decline Proactive Support, by opening a support ticket to make the
request. If Customer does not so notify FireEye that it wishes to
decline Proactive Support, FireEye will provision Proactive Support.
Proactive Support will be provided for all Customers purchasing 2-way
DTI content delivery.
Technology Preview/Early Access Program
FireEye may make some technology, preview features, support
functionality or services, or other offerings available on an early
access, preview or beta basis, either at no charge or for a fee .These
features are not intended for production use, may not be fully
supported, and may not be stable. Such features are provided "as
is" without warranty. FireEye reserves the right to charge fees
for preview or beta features if fully released.
For customers in mission-critical environments, FireEye recommends
the purchase of a hot or cold standby system, as well as spare disk
drives and power supplies. In the event of component failure, the
standby system or spare part can be swapped in while FireEye Support
analyzes the original failed system or part and determines whether it
can be fixed or must be replaced
A hot standby system is expected to be up and running so that it may
be “hot-swapped” in the event of a production system failure. It must
therefore be purchased with a support contract and subscription(s),
for example, DTI. Through the FireEye RMA process, the hot standby
system becomes the permanent replacement for a defective production
system and thus inherits the contractual entitlements of the defective
production system it replaced. The RMA replacement system will become
the new hot standby system and therefore assumes the contractual
entitlements of its hot standby predecessor.
A cold standby system is not sold with a support contract or
subscription(s), and must not be powered on4. In the event
of a production system failure, the cold standby system is powered on
and, through the FireEye RMA process, it becomes the permanent
replacement for the defective production system and is thus provided
with the contractual entitlements of the defective production system
it replaced. The RMA replacement system will become the new cold
standby and it will not have a support contract or subscription(s) entitlements.
In combination with a Platinum or Government Program, these standby
systems and spares offer a comprehensive solution for mission-critical
environments. Standby systems, once placed into production as
described above, are replaced through the FireEye RMA process as
reflected in the associated Support Program.
If converting a cold standby system into a hot standby system or a
production system, a support contract and subscription(s) must be
purchased for the system from point of cold standby system purchase.
4 A cold standby system may be powered on and temporarily
licensed once a quarter for the sole purpose of upgrading the system software.
Non-Returnable HDD and SSD Service
The FireEye Non-Returnable Hard Disk Drive (NRHDD) and
Non-Returnable Solid State Drive (NRSSD) services are annual
subscription programs for customers who cannot, or choose not to,
return a defective or failed disk drive associated with certain
FireEye appliances. Contact your FireEye account representative for
details on the appliances supported by these programs.

The customer is responsible for disposing of the replaced disk
drives in accordance with their internal data security compliance
requirements and with applicable local environmental and other laws.
If the NRHDD and/or NRSSD services are not exercised by the customer
at the time of original purchase then the customer will indemnify,
defend, release, and hold harmless FireEye from any and all claims and
liabilities relating to confidential data that may be on a returned
Service Term for NRHDD and NRSSD

term and must:

purchased for the appliance(s)
- Include the purchase of
NRHDD and/or NRSSD for all appliances owned
The quantity purchased should reflect the total number of appliances owned.
The NRHDD and NRSSD services are to be purchased in conjunction with
one of the FireEye Support Programs. Customers without a current
FireEye Support Program cannot enroll in the NRHDD and NRSSD programs.
Prior to any return as to which Advance Replacement applies,
