FireEye Inc (NASDAQ:FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced the integration of iSIGHT Partners threat intelligence into the FireEye® Global Threat Management Platform — enhancing customers’ abilities to proactively anticipate, detect, and respond to cyber threats. Following the recent launch of FireEye Security Orchestrator™, this platform integration continues to build on the open, unified foundation of the next generation of security operations center (SOC).
“With the world’s most comprehensive visibility into machine, victim, and adversary cyber threat intelligence coupled with hundreds of intelligence analysts spread globally, FireEye is uniquely able to help organizations establish a proactive security posture that anticipates and evolves with the threat landscape,” said Travis Reese, president of Mandiant Consulting and iSIGHT Intelligence, FireEye. “We are excited to lay the foundation for a flexible intelligence-led architecture that allows customers to consume intelligence in ways that are optimized for their security program.”
The integrated intelligence offering from FireEye is now branded under the name “FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence” and will result in new intelligence offerings aligned more closely to the security objectives of a broader set of organizations. The first phase of these new intelligence offerings will roll out later in 2016 and offer threat intelligence tailored to the role of the individual using it. Following that, FireEye will provide customers a unified threat intelligence portal that delivers comprehensive threat intelligence and analysis by combining multiple existing FireEye intelligence assets.
