FireEye

Security Platform to counter next-generation cyber attacks

FireEye provides a security platform that delivers real time protection against advanced cyber security attacks, which cannot be countered with traditional signature-based and pattern-matching approaches. Founded in 2004, the company has successfully pioneered the use of a virtual machine-based, signature-less approach to provide real time protection against previously undiscovered or custom-engineered targeted attacks on enterprises and governments. FireEye has thousands of customers and generated $623m of revenue in fiscal 2015, a 46% increase over the prior year.
