FireEye Redefines The IPS Landscape With FireEye MVX-IPS

MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireEye, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced FireEye ® MVX-IPS, a new approach to Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) that modernizes the IPS security layer by incorporating FireEye MVX technology and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence™. FireEye MVX-IPS is designed to provide a more comprehensive view of multi-vector attacks to boost threat protection against known and unknown attacks. FireEye MVX-IPS is now available in Beta and will be generally available as an add-on license for the FireEye Network Threat Prevention Platform (NX series) during the first half of 2014.

Current IPS products are deficient for two reasons -- they are signature-based and therefore unable to detect modern threats, and they create excessive alerts, requiring customers to devote additional resources to manage their system. FireEye MVX-IPS takes a new approach to IPS by extending FireEye's Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) technology to a new layer in the security stack, eliminating both problems created by traditional IPS solutions. The unique architecture of FireEye MVX-IPS allows validation of attacks identified by IPS, thereby reducing alerts and allowing security teams to focus on genuine threats. This approach consolidates threat prevention for known and unknown threats, increases the efficacy of defenses against known threats leveraging multi-protocol signatures, and optimizes time and resource investments needed to identify, validate and resolve these threats.

"While intrusion detection technology has held the promise of advanced threat detection for some time, it has generally failed to deliver by remaining too reliant on a signature-based approach. This has been one factor in moving the market towards alternative detection products such as STAP (Specialized Threat Analysis and Prevention)," said John Grady, research manager, security products at IDC. "The problem is that in most cases, the consolidated IPS functionality remains heavily signature oriented, thus only marginally improving security. Integrating STAP functionality directly with dedicated IPS technology, creates a more efficient and effective approach to detecting advanced, targeted attacks and greatly improves an organization's security posture."
