FireEye Launches Malware Controls

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- FireEye, Inc., a leader in network malware control solutions, today announced the availability of the FireEye Central Management System (CMS), and the FireEye 4200 2.0 appliance that addresses the exploding threat of remotely controlled malicious software or crimeware including botnets, zombies and zero-day threats. Leveraging FireEye’s innovative virtualization technology, the appliances protect both servers and desktops against targeted, intrusive malware while streamlining management of the solution. Unlike traditional security technologies, the FireEye CMS and 4200 2.0 protect against network-borne exploits, both known and unknown, and ensure that only compliant, up-to-date machines are granted network access.

“Malware breaches have now evolved into full-blown crimeware -- stealthy organized, monetized threats that can disable entire organizations,” said Ashar Aziz, founder and CEO of FireEye. “By combining advanced network security with our unprecedented virtualization technology, FireEye’s new Network Malware Control solutions create a new industry standard for addressing major gaps in enterprise protection. Crimeware threats like phishing, botnets, and zero-day attacks are repudiated with little impact to the IT organization due to the FireEye Central Management System’s easy configurability and integration.”
