MILPITAS, Calif., March 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireEye, Inc. (Nasdaq:FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the 2014 Global Web & E-mail Content Security Customer Value Enhancement Award. The award, based on the findings of Frost & Sullivan's Global Research Platform and TEAM research methodology, recognizes how the FireEye virtual machine-based security platform has excelled in addressing the needs of customers looking for protection against advanced cyber attacks.
To combat increasingly complex and persistent online attacks, FireEye developed the FireEye® Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX) engine, which identifies and protects against known and unknown threats that existing signature-based technologies are unable to detect. FireEye also provides customers access to the FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence™ cloud, which shares threat intelligence to identify and neutralize unique threats. The combination of virtual machine-based technology and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence allows FireEye to provide organizations valuable protection not available from other security vendors.
"Based on our research, FireEye is a leader in providing products and services that protect companies and organizations of all sizes against the nastiest of today's malware," said Frank Dickson, Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst. "FireEye has done an exceptional job of providing businesses with a modern and effective layer of protection that targets and neutralizes threats in real time for organizations in both the public and private sector."
