"We will be industry pacesetters – bringing innovation and expertise to shape the future of cybersecurity."

Delivering endpoint security comes with some significant challenges. Growing businesses know they need to protect their end-users from viruses, spyware, and unauthorized intrusion. FireEye, an intelligence-led security company, offers innovative endpoint security solutions for businesses around the globe. Working as a seamless extension of customer security operations, FireEye offers a single platform that blends nation-state-grade threat intelligence and world-renowned Mandiant consulting. With this approach, FireEye removes the complexity and burden of cyber security for organizations struggling to prepare for, prevent, and respond to endpoint cyber attacks. Endpoint Security enables detection and response using knowledge learned on the front line of incident response and managing customer defense.

FireEye’s report states that 81% of global organizations experienced increased cyber threats during the pandemic, with 79% experiencing downtime due to a cyber incident during a peak season. The Endpoint Security offered by FireEye shields your endpoints with multi-engine protection in a single modular agent. They block common malware with a signature-based engine and stop advanced threats with the machine learning engine, MalwareGuard. Endpoint Security has a few aspects to cover the various liabilities and attack modes. These include malware protection and antivirus, behavioral analysis, threat detection, and endpoint detection and response (EDR) to reduce the impact of a breach. These elements often come separately. In Endpoint Security, these are integrated into a single product for maximum efficiency. A key benefit of endpoint protection is the reduced number of alerts that security teams spend responding and quickly diagnosing real threats and mitigating their impact.

To combat the ever-increasing number and sophistication of attacks, FireEye delivers unmatched detection, protection and response technology through an extensible and flexible cloud-based XDR platform. FireEye XDR combines the automation of world-class technology with the power of unparalleled frontline human expertise, including industry-recognized services and nation-state grade threat intelligence. Even before XDR was defined, FireEye had worked to provide customers with XDR outcomes. We uncover threats by correlating incident data and applying unparalleled frontline intelligence and analytics to prioritize and respond to threats that matter. To reduce security complexity and raise the bar for security professionals, FireEye XDR not only provides our customers with simplified threat detection, investigation and incident response, but also up-level analyst proficiencies. FireEye XDR connects all FireEye technologies and expertise together, enabling them to seamlessly detect threats across endpoint, network, cloud, and email from a single platform.

Recently, in October 2021, McAfee Enterprise and FireEye combined to bring together their experience and expertise to build a market-leading security company. With proven technology and unusual solutions, the company serves more than 40,000 enterprise, commercial, and government customers worldwide. The new company combines innovative technology, intelligence, and automation to help solve its customers’ most complex cybersecurity problems.

McAfee Enterprise and FireEye’s portfolios are defined to disrupt and redefine the cybersecurity industry. The blended business offers an integrated security platform designed to protect customers across endpoints, infrastructure, applications, and the cloud. “The highly-skilled McAfee Enterprise and FireEye teams join forces to help our customers combat attackers while developing an integrated security platform powered by artificial intelligence and automation,” says Bryan Palma, Chief Executive Officer of the combined company. “We will be industry pacesetters – bringing innovation and expertise to shape the future of cybersecurity,” he added.

Through integrating Amazon cloud services and Amazon Inspector with their solutions, FireEye is offering new cloud security capabilities to its customers on Amazon Web Services(AWS). Data can now be coupled with threat intelligence to provide more profound vulnerability and risk context for detection and threat hunting activities while prioritizing actionable alerts. The Amazon Inspector integration adds to existing FireEye integrations with Amazon Cloudwatch, Amazon VPC Flow logs, AWS Network Firewall, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon GuardDuty, AWS Security Hub, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon Route 53. Data can now be shared across 600 security and business applications supported in Helix, creating greater efficiencies so the focus can shift to driving the business forward.

The experts at FireEye know that technology alone is not enough to combat cyber threats. They use a unique innovation cycle that combines technology with expertise to improve solutions at an unparalleled speed and sophistication continuously. World-Class expertise, advanced engines, and an extensible ecosystem allow the company to deliver state-of-the-art security solutions which have the potential to withstand significant security threats to highly secure data centers.
