FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYE), has announced the launch of the new FireEye® Helix™. The new release is a milestone improvement of the security intelligence company. It was aimed at the automation of cybersecurity operations. The system integrates Security information and event management (SIEM) process with advanced security orchestration. Endowed with threat and penetration detection intelligence, the platform provides an automated response and simplifies compliance reporting.
FireEye deploys its services through the cloud in a bid to offer clients a central platform for security control mechanisms. The mechanism also allows new users to monitor their cloud infrastructure via the security system. Through the provision of a control dashboard, visibility and response integrated capabilities are achieved across the cloud services like Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure Cloud.
FireEye believes in being at the frontline of fighting cyber crimes. It is evident that system adversaries are also keeping pace with existing technology to achieve successful penetration. Automating the existing security capabilities would mean smarter and more target specific admin responses during times of attack. The system focuses on the importance of bridging the gap between threat detection and lapse responses to reduce the impact of the attack.
Rapid Detection and Investigation
Enterprises require the appropriate blend of technology, skill, and process required to mitigate a fast-paced system threat. The company combines customer disparate security tools into one security entity for automated operations. The platform integrates user behavior analytics to surface threats missed by legacy tools and non-malware attacks. Users also gain access to FireEye threat intelligence awareness, integrated case management awareness, and investigative workflow. The processes are all aimed towards empowering all SOC activities from a single entity.
Automated Response and Central Visibility
Helix orchestration capabilities enable FireEye users to have an excess of automated alerts. The disadvantage, however, is that the tools provided to respond to malice attacks are inadequate despite the responses. For enterprises concerned about efficient responses, the platform integrates its intelligence mechanism with pre-built playbooks. The playbooks enable analysts to minimize manual, repetitive and error-prone steps, for instance, enrichment or error validation.
The platform carters for both cloud and business infrastructure security. FireEye Helix deploys centralized visibility, configuration monitoring, and user behavior analytics to detect advanced on-premise attacks.
