FireEye named a winner in the Channelnomics Innovation Awards
MILPITAS, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE) FireEye, Inc.(NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, hasbeen named a Channelnomics Innovation Award winner for
Endpoint Security with MalwareGuard.
The Channelnomics Innovation Awards celebrate the contributions of
vendors, distributors, and partners bringing innovation,
forward-thinking, and excitement to the channel. The awards are
completely independent and based solely on innovation and achievement in
the North American channel this past year.
Built over the course of two years by FireEye data scientists and
real-world incident response testing, MalwareGuard
is an advanced, machine learning-based detection and protection engine
added to FireEye Endpoint Security in July 2018. By combining the
technology, expertise, and intelligence learned over more than 10 years
on the frontlines of the world’s biggest breaches, MalwareGuard is
designed to defend against the known and unknown threats that often
bypass traditional security solutions.
“This award is an important marker of the innovations FireEye delivers
through the channel,” said Chris Carter, VP of channels, Americas at
FireEye. “FireEye Endpoint Security includes investigation, detection,
and response (EDR) capabilities that are designed to enable partners to
analyze and address threats for their clients in a single integrated
workflow. As a result, FireEye channel partners are able to create a
business around endpoint malware protection an area where margins have
disappeared in the last 10 years.”
Carter continued, “By combining our unique frontline knowledge of the
adversaries with our in-house machine learning expertise, we’ve been
able to decrease the window of time from discovery, to analysis, and the
deployment of protection. This enables partners to reduce risks to their
client’s data and proprietary information while focusing more of their
time on critical areas of their business.”
“When we sell FireEye products to our clients, we manage their
environment completely,” said Steve Cobb, senior technology and security
fellow at One Source Communications, a strategic partner for managed
Security Services. “The FireEye intelligence that feeds into
MalwareGuard, along with the automation of the machine learning,
provides a higher level of granularity on alerts and events―making it
extremely consistent. When we get an alert, our analysts know it’s
something they need to take a look at. Paired with other FireEye
products, we can see a full timeline of what has happened, which enables
us to provide effective prevention, remediation and incident response.”
A free trial of FireEye’s next-gen Endpoint solution is available from
authorized FireEye partners worldwide. Additional product details can be
