MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced new cloud and virtual form factors for its Endpoint Security solution. Available globally by third quarter of 2017, the new cloud and virtual offerings enable customers and partners additional flexibility for deployment and lower cost as they move to the cloud.
A pioneer of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), FireEye cloud and virtual Endpoint Security are part of major upgrades available for customers in 2017 – aimed at delivering an intelligence-led Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) that simplifies, integrates, and automates security. Additional 2017 upgrades will include:
- Anti-virus (AV) replacement & remediation in the third quarter of 2017,
- Linux support for protection of all major computing platforms including macOS and Windows, and
- Continued investment in simplified security driven by the company’s many years of data science and artificial intelligence (AI) research and products.
“Every day we see endpoint security solutions with big tech buzzwords and more alerts failing our partners and customers as we respond to their breaches. By applying what we learn to our Endpoint Security, we can relentlessly protect our customers while simplifying their security operations,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO, FireEye.
“We started the year with a goal to protect our clients with the best next-generation endpoint platform in 2017. The addition of cloud and virtual offerings is a critical step towards that goal,” said John Laliberte, SVP of Engineering, FireEye. “These new form factors are designed to enable our clients and partners to deliver the best intelligence-led endpoint security at scale while reducing costs and increasing deployment flexibility.”
“Enterprises are increasingly seeing the value of investing in security products that are supported with a mixture of robust threat intelligence, professional and managed services," said Robert Westervelt, research manager at IDC. "FireEye Endpoint Security is among the modern endpoint security solutions available today that are well positioned to challenge traditional anti-virus offerings. FireEye's flexible and cost-effective delivery options, combined with an integrated portfolio of products and services, provides enterprise buyers with an extremely attractive option for threat detection and incident response.”
The Best Next-Generation Endpoint for Channel Partners
For partners, the new form factors make delivering FireEye Endpoint Security faster and more efficient. Partners can immediately deploy the virtual and cloud versions of FireEye Endpoint Security with no hardware required, and provide options to host or virtually manage these solutions for their customers. These new options drive down cost and complexity for new deployments and provide proven scalability from a global security vendor.
Additionally, with FireEye Helix™, partners can simplify customers’ security operations with integrated endpoint, network, and third-party alerts offering a unified view of the threats in an environment. Helix can be managed by customers or partners, with FireEye providing experts at the moment a customer should request additional expertise.
