Annual “Appy” Award Recognizes Top Mobile Business Applications
Milpitas, CALIF. – Dec. 8, 2014 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced that it won CRN‘s 2014 Enterprise App Award in the security category for the FireEye Mobile Security™ application. The CRN “Appys” recognize outstanding achievement by developers of enterprise mobile apps.
Awards were given in 11 distinct categories this year: analytics, communication, contact management, enterprise collaboration, human capital management, information access/management, Internet of Things, productivity, security, systems administration/management and Editors' Choice. Winners selected by a CRN editorial panel, are based on a combination of critical factors including functionality; suitability to task; ease of use; innovation; and potential value to solution providers, their customers and the market in general.
The FireEye Mobile Security app is designed from the ground up to identify and stop mobile threats on Android devices. Part of the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention solution, it can identify advanced malware, compromised adware, and software vulnerabilities in mobile applications using behavioral analysis.
“The winners of CRN’s Appy Awards are those companies whose new applications have added significant business value to enterprises and the solution providers that serve them,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We congratulate the winners for their outstanding achievement in bringing innovative, easy to use mobile applications that boost enterprise productivity to market.”
“This award demonstrates industry recognition of the importance of mobile threat prevention,” said Manish Gupta, senior vice president of products at FireEye. “Rather than relying on a traditional signature-based approach, which are ineffective against modern threats, we’re providing users a way to make informed decisions about mobile security by blocking malicious apps from being installed in the first place.”
Honorees are featured in the December issue of CRN magazine as well as online at www.crn.com. Award winners were also spotlighted during the NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, December 4-5, 2014, in San Diego.
