Milpitas, CA -- December 5, 2013 -- FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced the FireEye Oculus platform for small and midsize businesses (SMB). Oculus for SMB combines technology, services, and threat expertise in a solution specially tailored to small and midsized businesses. Leveraging the industry's leading advanced threat prevention platforms for Web, email, and mobile, Oculus for SMB enables simple and scalable security. The solution includes state-of-the-art continuous monitoring to help address the comprehensive advanced security needs of this large and critical business segment. Today, FireEye has hundreds of SMB customers across multiple verticals including finance, manufacturing, and retail.
"For years, FireEye has provided unprecedented protection to the enterprise, but there's no question that small and medium-sized businesses have as much need for effective information security technology as large companies," explained Charles Kolodgy, research vice president of security products at International Data Corporation (IDC). "Cybercriminals target small organizations who, consequently, require an effective solution to protect their businesses."

And in 2012, Verizon reported that 77 percent of cyber attacks targeted small businesses. IDC reports that SMB spending on security technology continues to show strong growth and is predicted to exceed $5.6 billion in 2015.1
