FireEye, a global security specialist, has introduced the FireEye Helix, a new system that unifies network, endpoint and third-party product visibility with the company's iSIGHT Intelligence and Mandiant expertise.

The new platform will oversee low quality and false alerts from traditional security offerings, which include new generation firewalls, endpoint, and intrusion prevention systems. FireEye Helix delivers capabilities across three key areas of demand: Accurate Detection and Alerts, Intuitive, Single User Interface, and Accelerated Response with Automation & Orchestration.

Kevin Mandia, CEO, FireEye, said: "After more than two decades responding to the largest breaches in the world, it is clear that threats have evolved to actively exploit the detection and process failures in security operations that slow response."

He added: "FireEye Helix is a revolutionary approach that builds on our best in class detection solutions and investments in Mandiant, iSIGHT Partners, and Invotas; creating the first intelligence-led platform that enables simple, integrated, and automated security operations from the cloud or on premise."

Rob Ayoub, Research Director at IDC. Shared: "The business benefits of moving IT resources to the cloud - efficiency, agility and reduced costs - often overshadow the risks and unintended consequences that follow cloud adoption. Therefore it becomes imperative businesses deploy advanced security solutions that provide flexible, agile, and distributive protection at a low cost."

FireEye Helix is available now via the early adopter program, while general availability is set for the first quarter of 2017.
