FireEye and Guidance Software Partner to Deliver Integrated Cyber Attack Detection and Incident Response Solution

FireEye and Guidance Software Partner to Deliver Integrated Cyber Attack 
Detection and Incident Response Solution 
Next-Generation Threat Protection Company and Security Incident
Response Company to Jointly Detect, Validate, and Remediate Today's
Advanced Threats 
MILPITAS, CA and PASADENA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- 
FireEye(R), Inc., the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber
attacks, and Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID), the World Leader
in Digital Investigations(TM), today announced the integration of the
companies' two security solutions to more effectively detect,
validate, and remediate today's new breed of cyber attacks. 
The integration between Guidance Software's EnCase(R) Cybersecurity
and the FireEye next-generation threat protection platform is
designed to automate the incident response workflow so that companies
can start triaging an advanced cyber attack immediately following
detection, within minutes instead of weeks. The combined solution
uses the FireEye platform to detect malware on the network, and then
immediately shares threat intelligence discovered by the FireEye
platform with EnCase Cybersecurity. The FireEye alert triggers an
automated assessment of the endpoints by EnCase Cybersecurity which
determines their profiles, prioritizes the responses, and finally
remediates any harm. 
The FireEye-EnCase Cybersecurity joint solution provides a complete
workflow against today's new breed of cyber attacks. Features include
the following: 

--  Signature-less detection ensures the ability to detect advanced
    threats including targeted zero-day attacks and advanced persistent
    threats (APTs)
--  Automated endpoint validation to ensure high-risk devices get the
    immediate attention they deserve
--  A snapshot of the affected endpoints the moment an attack is detected
    to provide the information needed for comprehensive scope assessment
    and dramatic reduction in time to recovery
--  Remediation capabilities to block command and control traffic, kill
    malicious processes, and wipe offending files

"As a value added reseller, our mission is to solve pervasive
information security problems with the right technology -- and there
is no one vendor with a single solution," said Brandy Peterso
n, chief
technology officer, FishNet Security. "There's simply too much at
stake for our customers, and the integration between FireEye and
EnCase Cybersecurity will help them quickly detect and more fully
respond to cyber attacks." 
"Traditional security technology is ill-equipped to handle the
barrage of cyber attacks perpetuated by today's cybercriminals," said
David DeWalt, FireEye chairman and CEO. "FireEye has a unique threat
protection platform to protect against today's attacks, which is
extended by the ability of EnCase Cybersecurity to provide rapid
incident response." 
"The headlines prove that even the most secure organizations will
inevitably face a data breach and need to respond swiftly when that
happens," said Victor Limongelli, Guidance Software president and
chief executive officer. "Our customers acknowledge this and have
actively worked with us and FireEye to take the evolutionary next
step in information security, fully automating critical response
activities that mitigate the threat of today's cyber attacks." 
Additional benefits of the joint solution include: 
Lower Total Cost of Ownership - Organizations can decrease their
security spend by reducing detection time and improving digital
forensics, improving malware incident response from weeks to minutes. 
Advanced Threat Protection - Network traffic analysis identifies and
stops targeted, zero-day attacks and audits endpoints to detect
additional risk. 
Real-time Detection and Response - IT departments can identify and
prevent outbound callback communication to eliminate compromised
systems from being exploited by external command and control servers
to contain threats. 
Deep Forensic Analysis - The FireEye-EnCase Cybersecurity solution is
designed to provide total visibility into potentially compromised
endpoints the moment an alert is generated to accurately determine
the source and scope of an attack. 
The joint solution is available today from VARs worldwide.
