FireEye positions its malware sandbox as an integral component of the enterprise detection, investigation, and response lifecycle

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — December 7, 2016 — Based on its recent analysis of the advanced malware sandbox market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes FireEye with its 2016 Global Market Leadership Award. As a pioneer of the advanced malware sandbox as a critical enterprise security solution, FireEye leveraged its first-mover advantage to claim 56% of global revenue in 2015, propelling the company’s revenue to $623.0 million for 2015, which is a year-on-year increase of 46%. Its market dominance is largely due to the quality of its Threat Management Platform, which is a complete portfolio of advanced threat protection products.

The FireEye Threat Management Platform supports customers through the entire detection-to-response workflow using technologies such as Endpoint Security (offered as the FireEye HX Series), Email Security (Ex Series), Threat Analytics Platform (TAP), Enterprise Forensics (PX Series), and FireEye Security Orchestrator (FSO). The FireEye Mandiant Consulting team assimilates global threat data to deliver assessment, response, and post-breach investigation and remediation services.

FireEye’s Threat Management Platform prominently features the FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine, which employs dynamic, real-time analysis to detect known and unknown threats. It leverages a number of unique and cutting-edge security technologies and advanced features such as a purpose-built hypervisor and multi-flow and multi-vector analysis techniques.

“Multi-flow and multi-vector analysis techniques are unique and important capabilities, as it preempts the moves of sophisticated threat actors that often use blended attacks and creative new attack vectors to gain a foothold in enterprise networks,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Chris Rodriguez. “Meanwhile, the purpose-built, proprietary hypervisor prevents threat actors from creating malware that can detect the virtual execution environment.”

In order to ensure that its solutions are capable of detecting and disabling even the most recent malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), FireEye acquired iSIGHT Partners in 2016. The resultant offering was FireEye iSIGHT Threat Intelligence, a platform providing strategic insight into threat actors and their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). After a thorough analysis, it presents machine-ready intelligence for blocking threats and expediting response and remediation.

The holistic and sophisticated features of the FireEye Threat Management Platform have made the solution extremely popular among the Global 2000. Despite this success, the company continues to seek opportunities for organic and inorganic growth. Its recent strategic investments included the acquisitions of Mandiant in 2013, nPulse in 2014, and iSIGHT Partners and Invotas in 2016. While Mandiant delivers essential security consulting services, nPulse offers network forensics and iSIGHT presents deep threat intelligence gathered from primary resources. The addition of Invotas will help enterprises orchestrate and automate security processes, making security analysts more efficient and, therefore, more effective.

“FireEye has cemented its reputation as a provider of high-quality security solutions and has won business from some of the world’s largest enterprise organizations and government agencies,” noted Rodriguez. “Additionally, it has multiple certifications including FIPS-140 and Common Criteria and is the only security vendor to have obtained the DHS Safety Act certification.”

Frost & Sullivan is pleased to recognize FireEye for exhibiting excellence in growth, innovation, and leadership, and for driving business performance by innovating for the future.

Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
