FireEye named a winner in the Channelnomics Innovation Awards

MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 12, 2018-- FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, has been named a Channelnomics Innovation Award winner for FireEye® 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 found at www.fireeye.com/endpoint. More information on becoming a FireEye Fuel partner is available at https://www.fireeye.com/partners.html.
