FireEye Global Threat Management Platform Now Orchestrates And Automates Security Operations By Unifying Complex Security Architectures, Advancing Detection And Accelerating Response

MILPITAS, Calif. – May 5, 2016 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced FireEye® Security Orchestrator™ (FSO™) — the orchestration and automation solution leading FireEye’s efforts to help customers build their next generation Security Operations Center (SOC) and reduce the impact of a breach.

Enhancements to the intelligence-led FireEye Global Threat Management Platform were also announced, focusing on detecting non-malware based email attacks, providing greater visibility into attackers’ lateral spread, guiding investigation activities, and offering high availability features for deploying FireEye inline.

“As cyber threats have become more sophisticated, the security industry has responded with complex defensive layers that force organizations to manage an overwhelming number of technologies and alerts,” said David DeWalt, CEO and chairman of the board, FireEye. “FireEye Security Orchestrator uses innovative technology to deliver automated playbooks informed by a decade of experience responding to sophisticated threats – addressing the growing resource constraints that are slowing down today’s security operations. As part of our mission to enable the faster, next generation SOC, FireEye is also the only company to now offer continuous inline protection powered by industry-leading MVX technology.”

FireEye Security Orchestrator

Based on FireEye’s recently-acquired Invotas, FireEye Security Orchestrator provides a solution for cross-vendor orchestration, automation, and a central hub for security operations processes. By unifying workflows across numerous security technologies and the FireEye Threat Management Platform, organizations can simplify repetitive, manual processes that are prone to human error.

Features of FireEye Security Orchestrator include:

  • Playbooks informed by Mandiant® expertise that act as codified procedures to shrink incident response times;
  • Case Management for security analysts to manage incidents centrally;
  • Automation and documentation of manual processes designed to eliminate the majority of operational errors and ensure that policies are enforced consistently;
  • Investigative Workbench that facilitates the ability to aggregate, search, correlate, and take action for events of interest;
  • User-friendly reporting and analysis to monitor efficiency and effectiveness of security investments;
  • Orchestration Deployment Services providing expertise to design and deploy orchestration and automation to maximize return on investment; and
  • Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) partnerships and deep integrations with technology providers such as Blue Coat, BMC Software, MobileIron, PhishMe, Splunk and many more to enable our customers to unlock the value of orchestration and automation through an open ecosystem.

“CyberArk supports FireEye’s commitment to continuing to improve threat response capabilities for customers with Security Orchestrator,” said Adam Bosnian, executive vice president, global business development at CyberArk and head of the C3 Alliance. “As a CSC partner and through integrations of our respective solutions, which incorporate privileged account security best practices and privileged activity data, we enable customers to better detect and respond to threats.”

"Simplifying security in organizations that are increasingly mobile first demands integrated solutions that unify security architectures," said John Spencer, vice president strategic partnerships, MobileIron. "MobileIron and FireEye now provide a powerful framework that our joint customers can take advantage of to make securing their data faster and less resource-intensive.”

“Blue Coat and FireEye are committed to protecting our shared customers by working together to address their needs," said Bradon Rogers, SVP of product strategy and operations, Blue Coat. "As a CSC partner, we will ensure simplicity for customers through interoperable technologies.”
