Predicting that technology alone is not adequate to fight against cyber attackers, the intelligence-led security company aims at addressing the whole security operations lifecycle through their Security-as-a-Service approach, surpassing the capabilities of traditional security products. This approach extends its search to monitor, simplify, and augment the current security operations of the organization to deliver the best security measures needed, whether it is a public cloud, private cloud, on-premise or hybrid environment, in the network, or at the endpoint. By unifying organizations’ alerts under FireEye as a Service (FaaS), the firm is building the first piece of a Security-as-a-Service revolution to reduce the time it takes to detect security breaches and respond to them, minimizing the overall impact.
Recently, FaaS identified a spear-phishing campaign that targeted personnel from several organizations who are a part of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. By identifying the loopholes in the infrastructure with related tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs), FireEye was able to notice that this campaign was associated with a ‘financially motivated’ threat group.

The Milpitas, CA-based company’s Advanced Threat Intelligence gives access to threat data and analytical tools that assist in identifying attacks and providing context about the tactics and motives of specific threat actors. This repository enables organizations to implement an adaptive security model, to quickly detect and counter breaches as they occur.
Additionally, FireEye’s Helix platform significantly reduces the effort, time, and cost connected with managing low-quality security products or false alerts from traditional security solutions, such as next-generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. “FireEye Helix is a revolutionary approach that builds on our best-in-class detection solutions, creating the first intelligence-led platform that enables simple, integrated, and automated security operations from the cloud or on-premise,” explains Kevin Mandia, CEO and Board Director, FireEye.
Working as a seamless, scalable extension to customer security operations, FireEye continues to acquire the ability to move with the ebb and flow of the future. The company plans to increase its prowess in the cybersecurity space by building more solutions, designing more services that will be hailed for their quality and reliability. However, it will not be the software or implemented technologies by which FireEye will compute its success, but by the number of customers achieving their goals productively.
