FireEye Expands Cloud Security Capabilities on Amazon Web Services

December 3, 2019 0 By Hoofer

FireEye, Inc., the intelligence-led security company, announced today at AWS re:Invent 2019 the availability of several new cloud security capabilities on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“Threats in the cloud are unique in their nature. Often, organizations lack the necessary expertise to extend their visibility and protection across complex cloud infrastructures,” said Grady Summers, EVP of Products & Customer Success at FireEye. “Now, FireEye technology and intelligence are accessible on AWS, allowing organizations to add an additional layer of protection from advanced attacks in the cloud that bypass traditional defenses.”

New FireEye Helix security analytics capabilities and cloud versions of FireEye Network SecurityForensics, and Detection On Demand are now all available on AWS.

Enhance Threat Protection and Data Breach Prevention with FireEye Network Security and Forensics

The expanded use of decentralized infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platforms has led to new challenges in protecting organizations in the cloud. When faced with new attack vectors, such as ransomware, web shells, and targeted malware, cloud IT infrastructures often render traditional defenses obsolete. FireEye Network Security and Forensics brings together advanced threat protection and breach detection with the industry’s fastest lossless network data capture and retrieval solution. Paired with centralized analysis and visualization, this solution gives organizations a truly comprehensive detection and visibility solution. With support for AWS, FireEye customers are able to view the same level of network detail, regardless of where their assets reside – on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both.

Apply Advanced Cloud Threat Analytics with FireEye Helix

To detect abnormal attacker behavior and unique threats to AWS, FireEye Helix is introducing new data analytics rule packs powered by Mandiant® incident response expertise. Helix augments these capabilities with insights from leading FireEye threat intelligence to further expand the value of FireEye Virtual Network Security and FireEye Detection On Demand in identifying prevalent cloud security challenges, such as cloud misconfigurations, credential misuse and password spray attacks, plus abnormal admin activity and geographic infeasibility.

Pinpoint File-Borne Threats with FireEye Detection On Demand

FireEye Detection On Demand is a scalable security layer that makes it easy for organizations to analyze untrusted content. Using insights gained from FireEye Threat Intelligence experts, the cloud-native service is designed to provide detailed information as to why content has been flagged as malicious. This gives organizations the information and context needed to know how to best remediate file-borne threats. With its flexible deployment options, Detection On Demand allows customers to apply leading FireEye threat detection capabilities standalone, or in conjunction with existing cloud applications or services offered by FireEye or a third-party.
