Waters Rankings 2015: Best Cyber-Security Provider ─ FireEye

FireEye wins the inaugural title.

So it seems only right that, on the heels of our cyber-security issue this April, the Waters Rankings create a category for the best cyber-security provider. And while the competition was intense, FireEye, a Milpitas, Calif.-based cyber-security and malware protection firm founded in 2004, is the most deserving of the inaugural title.

It is fitting that the first winner of this category would be such a worthy candidate. The Department of Homeland Security has certified FireEye under the SAFETY Act, making it the first, and currently only, cyber-security vendor to hold the certification.

FireEye's suite of products is designed to address the gambit of cyber-security threats firms face. Clients are offered preventative measures to minimize attack surface areas; develop advanced detection capabilities; increase network, endpoint and event visibility; improve threat intelligence; and adapt to emerging threats and gain forensics for network and endpoint insight.

Despite having been around for more than a decade, FireEye continues to refine its products, a testament to its dedication to evolving with the threat landscape. The past year has been no different: New upgrades were made to the firm's Email Threat Prevention Platform and its Advanced Threat Intelligence. Improvements to blocking and containing email attacks were combined with actionable intelligence and valuable context to help increase responsiveness and decrease detection time.

"The enhancements were made because the vast majority of breaches start with spear phishing email, and by combining these two tools, we can offer our customers superior protection," says Manish Gupta, senior vice president for products at FireEye.

"As attacks change, defensive measures must evolve," Gupta explains. "The next generation of security architecture needs to be adaptive, nimble and have real long-term relevance. FireEye is approaching this with state-of-the-art products, highly skilled security experts, and real-time threat intelligence."
