The FireEye platform supplements traditional defenses with a new model of security to protect against today’s new breed of cyber attacks. The unique FireEye platform provides the only next-generation threat protection to dynamically identify and block cyber attacks in real time.
Replacing mass-market malware, today’s cyber attacks are personalized and persistent. Threats are ever morphing, dynamic, and zero day. These multi-stage attacks look innocent to traditional and next-generation firewalls, IPS, AV, and gateways that rely on signatures and known patterns of misbehavior or reputations. Once inside, malware calls back for instructions to steal data, spread laterally into network file shares, allow reconnaissance, or lie dormant until the attacker is ready to strike.
The FireEye platform utilizes a signature-less, virtual execution engine that creates enterprise specific threat intelligence across vectors; securing against Web, email, file, and mobile attacks. By detonating Web objects, suspicious attachments, and mobile applications within instrumented virtual environments, FireEye is uniquely able to detect zero-day Web exploits, spear phishing attacks, and rogue mobile applications. By correlating multi-vector threat intelligence, this enables the FireEye platform to quarantine zero-day spear phishing emails, block related multi-protocol command and control communications, and identify all the intended victims.
The FireEye technology partnerships help form an integrated defense to rapidly detect, validate, and respond to cyber attacks. Partner integrations address the network-to-endpoint visibility and enforcement options needed today and enable customers to leverage their existing infrastructure and achieve greater security ROI.
