Milpitas, Califorinia - Feb 23, 2009 – FireEye, Inc., the leader in global anti-malware and anti-botnet protection announced today that Jordan Blake, director of product management, will present a session at the Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE) 2009 event entitled, "Awash in a Sea of IDS Alerts - How to Find the Needle in Your Haystack." Blake's participation in the VSTE event is part of FireEye's broader commitment to helping higher education organizations overcome their infrastructure security challenges to better detect and prevent against today's sophisticated malware intrusions. VSTE 2009 is being held February 22-24, 2009 in Virginia Beach, Va.

"Because of their critical need to maintain open networks, universities have unique challenges when it comes to IT security," said Jordan Blake, director of product management.
