    FireEye Just Achieved This Key Milestone

    As much as FireEye (FEYE) has for years been a force to reckon with in the cybersecurity vendor market, the one thing that had been lacking on its resume was that unlike rivals Cisco Systems (CSCO), Symantec (SYMC), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), it had never turned a quarterly profit since going public back in 2013. Wall Street on average was expecting FireEye to post a loss per share of $0.01 in 4Q17. FireEye would have actually posted a GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) profit in 4Q17 had it not been for a one-off expense of $12.5 million that the company incurred toward legal settlement costs.

FireEye is one of the ten largest pure-play cybersecurity companies in the world, according to the BVP Cyber Index. Also on this list are Check Point Software (CHKP), Symantec (SYMC), Palo Alto Networks (PANW), and Proofpoint (PFPT).

In a joint statement, Finjan and FireEye said that they had agreed to resolve and settle all claims against each other.

    Why Microsoft May Be Considering Buyouts for Its Windows Defender Platform

    In the preceding parts of this series, we discussed how FireEye’s (FEYE) distinct position in the cybersecurity space makes it a potential target for Microsoft (MSFT), which has been eyeing acquisitions in the security space for a long time now. The acquisition of a cybersecurity company would also be in sync with Microsoft’s strategy of becoming a leader in the cloud. Without a doubt, cloud security is one of the key areas of growth in the cybersecurity space, and security is a prerequisite of Microsoft’s vision of becoming a leader in the public cloud. A stronger security offering would not only help Microsoft’s public cloud offerings but also enhance the software and OS (operating system) offerings that form the crux of its business.

  • Why FireEye Could Be Seen as an Acquisition Target

    Why FireEye Could Be Seen as an Acquisition Target

    In the last week of December 2017, the Information predicted that Microsoft (MSFT) will make a “major, multibillion dollar security acquisition” in 2018, and rumor has it that FireEye (FEYE) could be a potential target. If you’ve been following the tech sector for some time, there’s likely nothing very newsworthy about this—if you consider the above information individually. Microsoft has been on an acquisition spree for the past couple of years, and with the new US tax plan in effect, Microsoft will bring billions of dollars in overseas cash back into the US. Microsoft is likely to use this cash to fund R&D (research and development), make strategic acquisitions, or announce dividends and share buybacks.

    Symantec's revenue misses and forecast disappoints, shares fall

    Symantec, like its rivals FireEye Inc (FEYE.O) and Palo Alto Networks Inc (PANW.N), has been ramping up its cloud-based offerings to cater to growing demand for such products. The company underestimated the timing of customers' shift to cloud and subscription-based services and that led to a recalculation of the outlook, Symantec Chief Executive Gregory Clark said on a post-earnings call with analysts.
