General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions Launches New Malware-Detection Product To Protect Against Targeted Inbound Threats

WALTHAM, Mass., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions has introduced Fidelis XPS Vector, a new product in the Fidelis XPS portfolio that provides comprehensive detection, analysis and prevention against inbound malware and associated command and control traffic. Fidelis XPS Vector protects customers against both common and targeted malware and exploits used by adversaries to penetrate networks.

"We developed Fidelis XPS Vector to help customers target inbound malware, a tactic that is increasingly being used to attack enterprises," said Tom Lyons, vice president of product management at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. "In this cost-effective product, Fidelis XPS Vector provides customers the unique ability to look at all network traffic, applications and content entering or exiting their networks, including web, e-mail, messaging and even previously unknown, customized traffic."

Fidelis XPS Vector can analyze hundreds of inbound objects per second and can block sessions containing malware. It identifies and extracts malicious content hiding in e-mails, instant messages, Microsoft ® Office files, PDFs and various other formats that are sent through applications such as social networks, webmail and over all Internet protocols including HTTP, SMTP and FTP. Once the malware is detected or blocked, security practitioners are instantly alerted with a detailed analysis report that includes information about the source of the malware, the decoding path, details about the protocol, encoding and compressions and execution forensic details.

Fidelis XPS Vector includes an integrated management console and network sensor that starts detecting inbound malware immediately after being installed. It requires no configuration or tuning, and automatically receives updates from Fidelis Insight Threat Intelligence Feeds. As requirements and needs for visibility and detection across the entire threat lifecycle expand, customers can easily upgrade to other Fidelis XPS solutions to provide broad-spectrum visibility and control of advanced threats. And for current Fidelis XPS customers, Fidelis XPS Vector can also be managed through the Fidelis XPS CommandPost management console.

As with all Fidelis XPS advanced threat defense products, Fidelis XPS Vector is built on a patented Deep Session Inspection ® platform, which enables security practitioners to discover, investigate and remediate advanced threats quicker, more efficiently and cost-effectively with visibility and control over the entire life cycle of the threat.

General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions offers a comprehensive portfolio of products, services and expertise to combat today's sophisticated advanced threats and prevent data breaches. Our commercial enterprise and government customers around the globe can face advanced threats with confidence through use of our Network Defense and Forensics Services, delivered by a team of security professionals with decades of hands-on experience, and our award-winning Fidelis XPS Advanced Threat Defense products, which provide visibility and control over the entire threat life cycle.
