MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - FireEye®, Inc., a leader in stopping advanced cyber attacks, today announced that it has formed an interoperability partnership with RSA, The Security Division of EMC. Under a new interoperability agreement, the RSA NetWitness® advanced threat network monitoring platform will leverage additional information on advanced cyber threats from the FireEye Malware Protection System™ so that joint customers can achieve faster time to remediation.
With the planned interoperability of the FireEye and RSA NetWitness solutions, joint customers will have greater visibility into the extent of previous network and system compromises and cyber attack tactics, and be able to take action to address similar cyber attacks that might occur in the future. This future integration will also help security analysts investigate and remediate the compromised end systems.
"With our next-generation threat protection, critical information gleaned from our appliances is crucial for security professionals to make informed decisions," said Mihir Mohanty, director of product management at FireEye. "This interoperability partnership is a win for our joint customers because it saves them time and resources and increases their visibility within their security operations."
"Enterprises demand insight into the impact of cyber attacks as they occur. The ability of our joint solutions to provide common customers with real-time, dynamic analysis of zero-day attacks, accurate incident scoping, and definitive answers, provides an extra benefit for customers looking to improve their security posture," said Brian Girardi, senior director, product management of RSA.
