FireEye releases 'Email Threat Prevention Cloud'
New offering combines advanced threat protection with traditional email security
FireEye Inc, has today announced the new release of FireEye Email Threat Prevention Cloud that adds the traditional email security features of anti-spam and anti-virus protection to its advanced threat detection capabilities.
The latest update to FireEye Email Threat Prevention Cloud creates the only secure email gateway solution that utilises the FireEye Multi-vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence (DTI) cloud.
"Traditional email security products do little to protect enterprises from advanced, sophisticated attacks," said Manish Gupta, senior vice president of products, FireEye.
"The FireEye Labs discovery of spammers deploying advanced attack methods serves as an ominous reminder that advanced attack methods are becoming commonplace and evade traditional defense. By unifying our advanced threat detection capabilities with the traditional email security tools enterprises have relied on, organisations can now have email security that efficiently protects them from the wide variety of attacks seen today."
The new release is designed to optimise enterprise security spending, reduce false positives, and enable operational efficiencies through consolidation. Key benefits include: comprehensive email security to combat advanced spear-phishing email attacks and traditional email threats with an active protection-mode or a monitor-only mode; and cost effective and easy to use cloud deployment model for quick deployment with no hardware or software to install.
Anti-spam and anti-virus protection capabilities of the email threat prevention cloud can also be integrated with the on-premise prevention platform allowing organisations needing on-premise, advanced email protection to enable comprehensive email threat prevention.
