FireEye Redefines Threat Detection Again With Cutting Edge Innovations Powered by New MVX Architecture

MILPITAS, CA, Oct 12, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- FireEye, Inc. FEYE, -2.79% the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, unveiled its next generation MVX(TM) architecture, tripling analysis speed to improve time to protection. With this new architecture, FireEye brings increased speed, accuracy and coverage for advanced threats, provides richer contextual intelligence, and the automation of front-line intelligence to drive detection. The new release expands FireEye's ability to inspect encrypted objects, adding visibility into SSL encrypted traffic. FireEye also continues to reduce operational costs faced by security teams by eliminating the noise generated by adware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) in a solution that consolidates commodity and advanced threats. The new release will be generally available in November 2015.

With this release, customers will benefit from:

--  Increased speed, accuracy and coverage for advanced threats. Today,
    most advanced attacks leverage multiple vectors across many stages.
    With new innovations, FireEye customers will see:
    --  A three-fold increase in overall analysis speed using faster
        algorithms for web traffic analysis.
    --  A five-fold increase in capacity to detect attacks at their
        earliest phase to help block attackers at the weakest point of
        attack, further expanding FireEye's industry leading detection
--  A ten-fold increase in providing alert specific intelligence context
    at the time of detection. FireEye MVX is the only advanced threat
    solution in the market to provide attacker context at the time of
    detection. With this release FireEye has increased this capability to
    better enable enterprises to swiftly and accurately respond to threats
    that matter.
--  Automation of front-line intelligence. Identifying, correlating, and
    understanding suspicious patterns in an organization are fundamental
    to detecting today's advanced threats. FireEye's intelligence driven
    detection framework enables the quick release and tuning of new
    detection modules through FireEye's Dynamic Threat Intelligence(TM)
    (DTI(TM)) capability. In addition, FireEye investigates the
    intrinsic properties of malicious objects to detect evolving malware
    and recognize the continuous alterations made by attackers. This
    advanced technique leverages the power of the FireEye network
    encompassing millions of sensors, intelligence from incident response
    and FireEye threat research as well as machine learning and big data
    analytics to discover new malware variants. With these capabilities,
    FireEye customers can quickly and accurately respond to changing
    threat actor tools, tactics and procedures.
--  Mobile Threat Prevention integration into the MVX platform. The new
    MVX engine architecture enables detection and prevention of callbacks
    coming from infections on Android and iOS devices when they are on
    protected company WiFi networks.
