US firm offers IT security software for SMBs
Washington, December 5, 2013
US-based FireEye, a leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, has launched a new platform that combines technology, services, and threat expertise specially tailored to small and midsized businesses (SMBs).
The solution includes state-of-the-art continuous monitoring to help address the comprehensive advanced security needs of this large and critical business segment. Today, FireEye has hundreds of SMB customers across multiple verticals including finance, manufacturing, and retail.
"For years, FireEye has provided unprecedented protection to the enterprise, but there’s no question that small and medium-sized businesses have as much need for effective information security technology as large companies,” explained Charles Kolodgy, research vice president of security products at International Data Corporation (IDC).
“Cybercriminals target small organizations who, consequently, require an effective solution to protect their businesses.”
FireEye Oculus for SMB includes:
• Web threat protection: With the FireEye NX series platform, SMBs can stop Web-based attacks that traditional and next-generation firewalls (NGFW), IPS, AV, and Web gateways miss. The NX series protects against zero-day Web exploits and multi-protocol callbacks to keep sensitive data and systems safe.
• Email threat protection: SMBs can leverage cloud-based or the on-premise EX series platform to protect against today's advanced email attacks.
• Mobile threat protection: SMBs can leverage a cloud-based platform to address threats targeting mobile devices and help ensure that mobile apps are safe to use.
Oculus for SMB also provides Oculus Continuous Monitoring to help ensure that constrained security resources do not hinder an organization’s ability to counter targeted threats.
“FireEye is putting virtual machine technology into the hands of SMBs,” said Manish Gupta, FireEye senior vice president of products.
“With the FireEye solution, SMBs obtain a simple and scalable security solution for advanced threats to safeguard corporate assets and drive down business risks. SMBs will enjoy unmatched advanced threat protection solution with continuous monitoring to augment their limited resources.”
“With FireEye, we don’t have to worry about malicious threats to our systems — and we can now proactively block malware from reaching desktops,” said Wade Jones, CIO and senior vice president, Citizens National Bank of Texas.
The new SMB offering gives more than 500 FireEye channel partners the opportunity to expand their sales portfolio.
"The new commercial offerings from FireEye open up whole new markets for us to target,” said Barrie Desmond, group marketing director with Exclusive Networks. “Smaller organizations with high-value assets face the same threats as larger enterprises. Now we have a FireEye solution to help protect them." – TradeArabia News Service
