How we are different

• The difference between FireEye and the rest is that anyone can talk about the headlines. At FireEye, we live them every day. Election security serves as a great example of this. As the priority of securing free and fair elections grows on a global scale, FireEye feels it’s critical to bring heightened exposure to the situation. FireEye threat intelligence discovered a network of personas believed to be acting in support of Iranian political interests. They used real people’s personas on social networks, took on the personas of political candidates, and leveraged authentic Western media outlets to disseminate propaganda through op-eds, and even interviews.
• As another example, FireEye threat intelligence recently named a new advanced group, APT41. This China-based group penetrated and spied on global tech, communications and healthcare providers for the Chinese government while using ransomware against game companies and attacking cryptocurrency providers for personal profit. This group is highly unique carrying out state-sponsored espionage activity in parallel with financially motivated operations, even using highly targeted malware to identify text messages from specific individuals to do so. FireEye threat intelligence also issued a follow-on report detailing observed threats affecting healthcare organizations.
• FireEye is the undisputed best in the world at threat intelligence. In fact, Forrester has named FireEye the only leader in external threat intelligence services as well as the leader in incident response services. As we innovate, we have been focused on taking this intelligence to the next level. FireEye Expertise On Demand is a new service that helps address the growing talent shortage and lack of cyber experts by helping organizations augment their security teams with our Mandiant frontline experts, threat intelligence, and services when needed at the click of a button.
