Company Details


FireEye is the leader in stopping the new breed of cyber attacks, such as advanced malware, that easily bypass traditional signature-based defenses and compromise the majority of enterprise networks.

FireEye offers the industry's only solution that detects and blocks attacks across both Web and email threat vectors as well as latent malware resident on file shares. It addresses all stages of an attack lifecycle with a signature-less engine utilizing stateful attack analysis to detect zero-day threats. Based in Milpitas, California, FireEye is backed by premier financial partners including Sequoia Capital, Norwest Venture Partners and Juniper Networks.

The FireEye Malware Protection System stops the entire lifecycle of advanced targeted attacks across the Web and email threat vectors and malware resident on file shares. FireEye's solutions supplement traditional security defenses, such as traditional and next-generation firewalls, IPS, AV and gateways, which can't stop advanced malware, thus leaving significant security holes in the majority of corporate networks.

The FireEye security platform offers integrated, multi-vector protection utilizing stateful attack analysis to stop all stages of an advanced attack. Each of FireEye’s products features the Virtual Execution (VX) engine that provides state-of-the-art, signature-less analysis using patented, proprietary virtual machines. The Malware Protection System builds a 360-degree, stage-by-stage analysis of an advanced attack, from system exploitation to data exfiltration, in order to most effectively stop would-be APT attackers.
