Milpitas, CA -- April 29, 2014 -- FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced the release of its Regional Advanced Threat Report for Europe. Detailing malicious activities captured by the FireEye Security Platform throughout 2013, the report finds that more than 90 advanced persistent threat (APT) families were active across Europe, with the healthcare/pharmaceutical vertical being the most targeted.
“The European continent is quickly approaching an inflection point in its cyber security landscape that is much akin to what North America saw in 2011,” said Paul Davis, vice president, Europe at FireEye. “With advanced threat actors quickly scaling their operations against Europe’s most critical industries, we now have to turn our attention away from traditional defenses that cannot cope with these new and quickly growing challenges.”
Drawing on worldwide data gathered from nearly 40,000 unique cyber attacks (more than 100 per day) and over 22 million malware command and control (CnC) communications, the Advanced Threat Report provides a look into cyber attacks that routinely bypass traditional defenses such as firewalls, next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and security gateways.
