Great Northern IT Consulting now represents FireEye as one of the products in our security portfolio. FireEye is a threat prevention platform designed to combat today's advanced cyber attacks and it's designed from the ground up to stop advanced malware used by cybercriminals and advanced persistent threat (APT) actors. Each FireEye platform features the patented Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine that provides state-of-the-art, signature-less analysis along with proprietary virtual machines within its core to identify and block cyber attacks that may leverage one or more threat vectors to infect a client (e.g., targeted emails with embedded URLs or malicious documents).
The FireEye product line is made up of a set of appliances sized by customer throughput requirements. Included are appliances for web protection, e-mail protection, and file protection. All use a link to a world-wide database of known threats to insure access to signatures as early as possible in the threat cycle. In cases where threats are unknown, the appliance can create a signature on the fly immediately so the customer's environment is cleaned before any damage can be done.
