FireEye Expands Security Platform: Offers Customers One Solution To Detect, Contain, Resolve And Prevent Threats

MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireEye, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced an expanded FireEye ® Security Platform that is designed to give customers one solution to go from threat alert to remediation. The newly enhanced platform incorporates endpoint protection and managed security services from recently acquired Mandiant, as well as new analytics and intrusion prevention capabilities. Attendees at the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco will be able to view demonstrations of the new platform at the FireEye booth on February 24 – 27, 2014. The new products and services are expected to be generally available during the first half of 2014.

The FireEye Security Platform is powered by FireEye's proprietary MVX technology and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence™. The new capabilities include:

Intrusion Prevention System

The new intrusion prevention system will address the shortcoming of traditional IPS solutions by applying FireEye's Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) technology to validate attacks and minimize the time and resources security teams spend investigating false alerts. Users get actionable insight from validated alerts so they can focus on alerts that present the greatest risk and accelerate incident response. By adding intrusion prevention capabilities to the FireEye Security Platform, organizations can get a more comprehensive view of an advanced attack.

Endpoint Threat Detection & Response

The FireEye Security Platform now incorporates Mandiant's endpoint threat detection and response products (formerly sold as Mandiant for Security Operations). FireEye customers will now be able to confirm when network and email alerts result in compromise, make faster and more accurate decisions about incidents and contain impacted devices with a single click, even when they are outside of an organization's network.

Threat Analytics

New threat analytics capabilities will allow security teams to apply FireEye's threat intelligence to security event data generated from their existing security infrastructure so they can find and scope attacks as they are unfolding. This cloud-based solution is designed to perform real-time correlation of event logs against FireEye's threat intelligence to identify when attackers are active in your environment. The system delivers prioritized alerts to help accelerate incident response as well as manages incidents to improve efficiencies in assigning, tracking and resolving events.
