FireEye upgrades endpoint security solution


FireEye announced several enhancements to its endpoint security solution.

Utilizing the behavioral analysis capabilities of Exploit Guard, Endpoint Security now adds the prevention capabilities needed to quickly detect and respond to threats against Microsoft Windows.

With this latest release, FireEye Endpoint Security also adds support for macOS endpoints. These new capabilities are generally available to customers.

Additional 2017 enhancements will include anti-virus (AV) capabilities for known malware protection, virtual and cloud form factors, expanded behavioral analysis and machine learning capabilities to protect against unknown malware and exploits, and Linux support for server coverage.

“The investments we are making in 2017 for our customers in Endpoint Security are significant, as it is a core component of the FireEye Helix platform and a huge opportunity for our business,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO, FireEye.

Endpoint Security safeguards against the threats missed by legacy and next-generation endpoint security products.

With granular visibility into endpoint activity, security teams have the added benefit of being able to detail any incident in-depth, resulting in a real-time, intelligence-led endpoint response.
