FireEye Introduces New Virtual Machine-Based Threat Protection for Remote or Branch Offices
New FireEye NX 900 Helps Organizations Protect Remote or Branch Offices Against Web-Based Advanced Threats
MILPITAS, Calif., October 30, 2013—FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced the launch of the FireEye® NX 900, extending the FireEye virtual machine-based threat protection to remote or branch offices. With the FireEye NX 900, organizations can better protect one of the weakest links in enterprise security against advanced attacks. The FireEye NX 900 will be generally available before the end of the year.
An enterprise’s security architecture is only as strong as its weakest link. Due to the high cost of securing remote or branch offices, they often do not have the same level of security as deployed at main corporate locations.
“Today, many large enterprises support numerous remote locations with power users working on high-value assets,” said Manish Gupta, senior vice president of products at FireEye. “Security professionals struggle to protect geographically dispersed locations and branch offices from advanced attacks. With the FireEye NX900, security teams can apply the same FireEye technology that blocks advanced attacks at headquarters to any branch office.”
With the introduction of the FireEye NX 900, the NX series can help organizations scale their defenses across a range of deployments, from multi-gigabit large offices to smaller, regional, and branch offices. The FireEye NX 900 is designed to include the following capabilities:
Quick installation with time-to-protection in less than 30 minutes.
Protection against advanced attacks and advanced persistent threats.
Detection of pre-existing malware.
Integration with the overall FireEye architecture to protect customers from threats across multiple vectors.
