FireEye Unveils New Solutions, Capabilities

FireEye this week made several announcements, including the launch of new solutions and capabilities, new pricing and packaging models, and a strategic partnership with Oracle.

One of the new solutions is SmartVision Edition, an offering designed to help organizations detect malicious traffic moving within their network.

An addition to the FireEye Network Security offering, SmartVision Edition is designed to provide deep visibility into suspicious lateral traffic in order to help companies identify attempts to steal passwords, intellectual property and other sensitive data.

FireEye launches new products and capabilities

SmartVision is powered by an analytics and correlation engine, more than 120 post-breach detection rules derived from Mandiant investigations, detonation capabilities for suspicious files and objects, and a machine learning data exfiltration module.

The security firm also announced new deep learning-based capabilities for its Email Security product. The new functionality should improve detection of email-based threats, including impersonation attacks (e.g. BEC scams) and phishing.

The company says its Email Security product also helps detect anomalous behavior patterns associated with threats other than malware, it should improve the productivity of SOC analysts by grouping related emails, and retroactively detects threats missed during initial analysis to accelerate response and minimize impact.

FireEye also revealed that it has combined its Endpoint Security product with a managed detection and response (MDR) service.

Endpoint Security provides endpoint protection (EPP) technologies and endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities that help organizations detect threats based on their signature, behavior and data from deep investigation tools. Managed Defense (FireEye as a Service) is designed to detect stealthy attacker behavior using intelligence and insights from the company’s frontline experts.

The two have been combined into FireEye Endpoint Security and Managed Defense to provide a comprehensive solution that helps organizations stay secure, FireEye said.

All of the new solutions and capabilities integrate with the FireEye Helix security operations platform.

FireEye also announced that it has simplified pricing and packaging. Organizations can acquire different types of solutions based on a per-year subscription depending on their needs. The four types of packages available are FireEye Endpoint Security, FireEye Network Security, FireEye Email Security, and FireEye Security Suite. The Security Suite is a complete solution that combines all products.

As for the partnership with Oracle, FireEye says its Email Security solution has been integrated with Oracle Cloud.
