Everyone we know already knows about FireEye. This is a big reason we do not report on it more here at CTOvision, they get plenty of coverage elsewhere. But for continuity we had to add them to our curated lists of security firms so there is no doubt in anyone's mind that we are tracking this very capable firm. The hard thing to do is to categorize them, they do so much now that they should really be considered a platform company. But they are very strong in the network layer and in ensuring cyber threat intelligence is operationalized.
For an overview from Kevin Mandia see:
Here is the gist of what they do:
FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks. These highly sophisticated cyber attacks easily circumvent traditional signature-based defenses, such as next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and gateways. The FireEye Threat Prevention Platform provides real-time, dynamic threat protection without the use of signatures to protect an organization across the primary threat vectors and across the different stages of an attack life cycle.
The core of the FireEye platform is a virtual execution engine, complemented by dynamic threat intelligence, to identify and block cyber attacks in real time. FireEye has over 2,200 customers across more than 60 countries, including over 130 of the Fortune 500.
