FireEye Delivers Intelligent Threat Detection with Cloud MVX and MVX Smart

Cloud MVX integrates across FireEye Platform with Threat Analytics Platform and Endpoint Security; New intelligence delivery models simplify and strengthen applicability across organizations

FireEye introduced its new network security offerings – MVX Smart Grid and Cloud MVX, intelligent threat detection available via public, hybrid, or private cloud. MVX Smart Grid and Cloud MVX simplify and integrate security for large, distributed enterprises and mid-market organizations at lower cost; seamlessly expand protection with the industry-leading MVX engine for existing customers; and provide integration of FireEye TAP and HX with Cloud MVX enabling third-party alert validation and a richer endpoint security experience. Cloud MVX will be available globally later in 2016, and MVX Smart Grid is available globally now.

FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence was also enhanced to simplify the way intelligence is delivered and consumed by customers. Introduced today is a new intelligence delivery model, which tailors intelligence to the function of the user or team, consuming it. These intelligence subscriptions are available globally now.

The unique machine learning and analytics of the MVX engine deliver automated threat detection and blocking that generic sandboxes, endpoint solutions, and other products miss or hide among high false positives. Combined with the enhancements to FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence, FireEye continues to innovate around simplifying the security operations experience for our customers.

“MVX Smart Grid and Cloud MVX simplify and expand the protection of the pioneering FireEye MVX engine at lower cost, an innovation that gives a broader set of organizations access to the most intelligent detection anywhere and for any device,” said Grady Summers, chief technology officer, FireEye. “The completely rearchitected MVX Smart Grid, new Cloud MVX and FireEye platform integrations with TAP and HX detect threats that generic sandboxes, endpoint solutions, and other products miss. The new role-based intelligence provides the simplest way to act on and integrate cyber threat intelligence across security operations.”

MVX Smart Grid takes the world’s leading network security and makes it even better with entirely new, flexible and scalable deployment architecture via a hybrid or private cloud. MVX Smart Grid uses an innovative approach to more effectively secure campuses, branch offices, and remote users through the separation of FireEye’s pioneering MVX engine and the development of hardware and virtual Smart Nodes™. Smart Nodes analyze Internet traffic to detect and block threats using a variety of techniques such as static analysis, analytics, IPS, applied intelligence, and more, while the MVX engine performs core dynamic analysis, detecting threats that generic sandboxes, endpoint solutions, and other products miss.

Coming by the end of 2016, Cloud MVX provides a FireEye public cloud deployment of the MVX engine, allowing organizations to shift threat detection to the cloud, making the most intelligent security available anywhere, at any time, on a subscription basis. Working in conjunction with Smart Nodes, Cloud MVX is designed to ensure simple, real-time detection and blocking of known and unknown threats across the entire organization. Unlike generic cloud-based sandboxes, Cloud MVX does not simply analyze objects, but instead replays network traffic to identify attacks that span multiple network flows. This ensures that FireEye’s threat detection can now be deployed however customers want.
