FireEye Scales Threat Protection Management With New Release; Bolsters Email Threat Protection And Operational Readiness

MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireEye, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced FireEye OS 7.1, a major update to the FireEye OS that offers more scalable management capabilities to the CM series, IPv6 network security support to the NX series, and enhanced email threat analysis capabilities to the EX series. FireEye OS 7.1 will be generally available by the end of February 2014.

With FireEye OS 7.1, organizations can scale central management to deployments of hundreds of FireEye appliances and automate enterprise-wide alert notifications and responses using new Web services APIs. The new version also introduces security enhancements across the board, including security analysis of IPv6 network traffic within the NX series and enhanced email analysis of malicious files delivered through HTTP in the EX series. This broad update further enhances the FireEye comprehensive solution to protecting enterprises' most critical assets from advanced malware and targeted attacks.

To combat the increasing number of email-based attacks that take advantage of weaknesses in traditional anti-virus solutions, the new release introduces dynamic scanning of URLs sent via email that link to malicious files. FireEye EX now analyzes emails not only for malicious attachments, but also performs email header analysis and analyzes the URLs linking to suspicious files. Email header analysis enables FireEye to apply email specific threat intelligence to enhance detection and identification of advanced persistent threats (APTs).

"Over the course of our beta test we caught attacks that got through other layers of security," said Dimitri Limanovski, principal security engineer at Ellucian. "It wasn't the number of attacks that got through; it was the nature of what was attacking our network. We need to stop the most potent zero-day attacks and the new dynamic URL scanning from FireEye kept these from hitting our network."
