FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced new cloud security innovations, including expanded capabilities within the FireEye® Helix™ platform, as well as FireEye Messaging Security – a new offering that protects collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams and Slack.
“A rapidly increasing number of organizations around the globe are operating within a multi-cloud environment,” said Grady Summers, Executive Vice President of Products and Customer Success at FireEye. “While offering great flexibility, the cloud also presents unique challenges, as we see every day when responding to security incidents. Heightened visibility across these platforms is absolutely key. These new innovations deliver this advantage, so that our customers can help keep their cloud secure.”
FireEye Brings Entity Behavior Analytics to Helix
Behavioral analytics make it possible to identify threats by analyzing user behavior – an area that traditional cloud security controls typically bypass. As a native function within Helix, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) implements machine learning to establish baseline behavior and alert to risky deviations. This shift in security monitoring helps identify risky entities and protect organizations from insider threats, lateral movement, and other common cloud risks.
The benefits of these new capabilities include:
- Quickly access profiles of users and entities tracked by Helix
- Gain superior visibility into threats with automated correlation on entities and alerts
- Achieve a more granular view on detections with asset type and risk score information
