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
RSA Conference 2013
MILPITAS, Calif. & PASADENA, Calif. -- February 25, 2013
Guidance Software (NASDAQ: GUID) – FireEye^®, Inc., the leader in stopping
today’s new breed of cyber attacks, and Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID),
the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, 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^® Cybersecurity and the
FireEye 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
risk 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 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 Peterson, 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
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
The joint solution is available today from VARs worldwide.
