Next-Generation Analytics Platform Gives Enterprises Running AWS
Context Around Security Event Data, Reduces Alert Noise
MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:
FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today
announced that the FireEye(R) Threat Analytics Platform(TM) (TAP(TM))
is available for Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers. A cloud-based
security analytics solution, TAP applies FireEye Dynamic Threat
Intelligence(TM) (DTI(TM)) to event data produced by security
devices, networks, systems, and applications for attack detection,
security monitoring, and incident investigation support. The solution
is designed to reduce the alert noise of typical security tools and
enable organizations to focus resources on active incident response
and remediation in order to stop attacks.
With TAP on AWS, FireEye is the only security company to offer a
security analytics platform that combines industry-leading FireEye
threat intelligence with analytics and event monitoring across AWS
and on-premise environments. Built natively on AWS and used by some
of the largest organizations worldwide, TAP is designed to quickly
analyze billions of events across terabytes of data from any number
of data sources to find the events that matter. By integrating TAP
with AWS CloudTrail, organizations are able to monitor AWS API calls
from AWS Administrator Consoles, SDKs, command lines tools, or other
AWS services and apply FireEye intelligence to detect anomalous
behavior that can indicate malicious activities or a breach of
"As more critical systems move to the cloud, organizations need to
ensure the right level of security visibility into their cloud," said
Grady Summers, vice president of strategic solutions, FireEye. "We
believe the FireEye Threat Analytics Platform gives customers access
to the most advanced threat intelligence and enables security teams
to filter out the noise of typical security solutions, allowing them
to identify and stop advanced threats."
Organizations utilizing FireEye TAP gain visibility into AWS activity
that is correlated with real-time cyber attack data identified by
FireEye around the world, reducing false positi
ves and adding context
to real threats. For organizations with hybrid architectures, FireEye
TAP now combines data from both on-premise and cloud environments,
giving security teams visibility into advanced attacks that look to
take advantage of vulnerabilities in all areas of the network.
"Smart CISOs understand that cyber defenses must not only be
sophisticated but also extensible to enable protection of sensitive
IT assets deployed in the cloud," said Jon Oltsik, senior principal
analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "This announcement brings
advanced malware detection and response capabilities for the
corporate network and the cloud."
FireEye Threat Analytics Platform includes the following
-- Analyze Event Data to Detect Advanced Attackers. Perform correlation
of event logs against the FireEye database of threat intelligence and
apply sophisticated analytical threat models to identify when
attackers are active in the environment.
-- Apply community, custom or other threat intelligence sources. Rapidly
apply organizational or industry specific intelligence or hunt rules
to security event data to identify unusual activity that may indicate
the beginning of an attack.
-- Accelerate Response to Suspected Incidents. Enable analysts to filter
through noisy event data to find the events that matter and pivot on
information within an alert to identify related users, endpoints, and
attacker infrastructure so they can determine the initial scope of a
suspected incident and accelerate incident response.
-- Manage and Track Incidents. Improve efficiency of breach investigation
by enabling analysts to manage investigative tasks related to each
incident, track follow-up, and measure resolution time.
-- Integration with Existing Infrastructure. Seamless deployment and fast
time to value with pre built parsers for over 100 security devices,
network infrastructure systems, endpoints, applications and other data
AWS customers can add FireEye TAP to their systems through a one-click
purchase process and easily set up their deployment with a
self-service management tool. For more information or to request a
