FireEye Combines Next-Generation SIEM With Advanced Orchestration and Cloud Security in Helix Security Operations Platform
Helix improves upon SIEM by combining security orchestration and cloud security with threat intelligence, case management, and compliance reporting
Also new, customers can now monitor their cloud infrastructure with FireEye Helix. This provides one dashboard for visibility and response capabilities across cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure and Oracle® Cloud.
“Legacy SIEM tools have lost focus on detection and response.
Rapid Detection and Investigation
To protect against fast-moving threats, organizations need the right mix
of technology, expertise and processes. FireEye Helix integrates
customers’ disparate security tools into a single, automated security
operations platform. By applying User Behavior Analytics (UBA), Helix
surfaces threats missed by legacy tools and non-malware attacks. With
integrated frontline threat intelligence, users have access to
Legacy SIEM vendors take a static rule approach to detection, often leaving customers with an excess of alerts and no adequate tools available to cloud users to respond to them. For organizations concerned about efficient response, the platform now applies pre-built playbooks, helping analysts minimize manual, repetitive and error-prone steps, such as alert validation or enrichment. These new orchestration capabilities of FireEye Helix encompass over 150 integrations and 400 playbooks, and let users create their own unique playbooks, and modify existing ones, allowing for greater flexibility and continuous improvement of security processes.
Centralized Visibility in the Cloud
Visibility and detection don’t end with the data stored on-premise. For organizations that are adopting cloud infrastructures, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud, the cloud can be as vulnerable to attack as on-premise technology, but with fewer tools available to protect it. Poorly configured authentication, ineffective key management and unsecured APIs are just a few of the ways threat actors gain access to these infrastructures. FireEye Helix provides centralized visibility, configuration monitoring and user behavior analytics to detect advanced attacks both in the cloud and on-premise.
Over 150 Integrations and 400 Playbooks to Make Better Security Simpler
The combination of SIEM capabilities with advanced orchestration and cloud security makes FireEye Helix a compelling detection and response solution for a security operation of any complexity and scale. More notably, the new additions provide greater customer value with no changes to Helix’s pricing. With more than 300 plug-ins, the platform integrates with FireEye’s own and other companies’ security tools to bring FireEye’s leading frontline intelligence to data sent into the platform. The streamlined case management system is purpose built for security operators with a focus on displaying the right level of information to help organizations surface unseen threats and empower expert decisions.
