MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - FireEye®, Inc., the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber attacks, today announced an enhanced partnership with Mandiant the core of which leverages the FireEye next-generation threat protection platform to provide joint customers with complete detection and remediation of cyber attacks such as zero-day and advanced persistent threat attacks.
"The FireEye platform is a new model of security that when integrated with Mandiant provides companies with visibility into and correlation of events on their network and events on their endpoints," said Kevin Mandia, CEO at Mandiant. "We are pleased to leverage the FireEye APIs to integrate the Mandiant Intelligent Response appliance with the FireEye platform."
The ever-increasing level and sophistication of cyber attacks often results in headline-making breaches illuminating the ineffectiveness of traditional, signature-based defenses. The FireEye next-generation threat protection platform is a new model of security, one that closes the gap left by traditional security solutions.
"It is imperative for enterprises and government agencies to deploy next-generation threat protection. The FireEye partnership with Mandiant underscores the value of providing customers with the ability to detect, contain, and respond to cyber attacks," said Dave DeWalt, chairman and CEO of FireEye. "Mandiant has been and will continue to be an important partner for FireEye as the integration of our respective products provides joint customers with information and tools to effectively combat the cyber attacks being waged today."
Benefits of the integrated solution include:
- Correlate attacks across multple endpoints. Joint customers can connect FireEye threat intelligence with Mandiant endpoint inspection to assemble evidence of a compromise -- such as stolen user credentials and staging sites being used to steal data.
- Efficient network-to-endpoint attack mitigation. The FireEye threat detection capabilities combined with Mandiant's visibility into the malware host enables customers to detect advanced malware, accelerate incident response, and prioritize the threat they pose.
- Accelerated response time for advanced attacks. This partnership enables customers to shorten response time to sophisticated threats and improve their ability to address the full extent of attacks with an integrated solution.
