FireEye announces new cloud, virtual endpoint security offerings
Partners can deploy FireEye endpoint with no hardware, and provide options for managed services
FireEye has announced new cloud and virtual form factors for its Endpoint Security solution.
Available globally by early-Q3 2017, the new cloud and virtual offerings are designed to enable customers and partners additional flexibility for deployment and lower cost as they move to the cloud.
Additional 2017 upgrades will include:
- Anti-virus (AV) replacement & remediation in Q3,
- Behavior-based ransomware protection,
- Linux support for protection of all major computing platforms including macOS and Windows,
- Continued investment in security based on data science and artificial intelligence (AI) research and products.
“Every day we see endpoint security solutions with big tech buzzwords and more alerts failing our partners and customers as we respond to their breaches. By applying what we learn to our endpoint security, we can relentlessly protect our customers while simplifying their security operations,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO, FireEye.
Partners can deploy FireEye endpoint with no hardware required, and provide options to host or virtually manage for customers. These new options drive down cost and complexity for new deployments and provide proven scalability from a global security vendor.
Additionally, with FireEye Helix, partners can simplify customers’ security operations with integrating endpoint, network, and 3rd party alerts into a unified view of the most dangerous threats in an environment. Helix can be managed by customers or partners, with FireEye providing scalable experts at the moment a customer should need additional expertise.
