Is FireEye a firewall?

FireEye Network Security comes in a number of form factors, deployment, and performance configurations. It is often installed behind standard network security appliances such as next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and secure web gateways in the route of Internet traffic (SWG). It can also be deployed directly within an organization's network infrastructure (HW firewall) or as a cloud service that provides network security for virtual machines or containers.

Does FireEye protect against malware?

FireEye Network Security is designed to provide endpoint protection against known threats. It uses heuristics and dynamic behavior analysis to identify attacks against you. The product can also be integrated with third-party anti-malware solutions for even more coverage.

What platforms does FireEye support?

FireEye supports both on-premises and cloud deployments. There are three main editions of the product: Standard, Enterprise, and Vision. They differ primarily in terms of features, license costs, and deployment options. All versions support Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, and HTML5 devices.

What about IoT?

FireEye has an IoT edition of its product that is designed to protect connected devices such as smart homes, offices, and vehicles from threats.

What is FireEye endpoint security?

FireEye Endpoint Protection is a unified endpoint solution that detects, stops, and efficiently responds to known malware and threats that typical anti-virus endpoint security products overlook. It provides centralized management, deployment, and reporting for all your endpoints from one console.

Endpoint protection as a category is growing quickly because it offers organizations of all sizes a reliable way to protect their most vulnerable assets - computers within their network infrastructure that don't require full-scale network security measures to be secure. Traditional anti-virus software requires manual installation on each device to be protected, which many businesses view as too time-consuming and costly. But traditional antivirus software has the advantage of covering everything from mobile devices to workstations to servers. Endpoint protection only covers computers that are connected directly to a network, so they're easier to maintain and less likely to be infected with malware.

Endpoint protection focuses solely on preventing attacks from reaching endpoints by detecting and blocking malicious files before they can do any damage. It does this by scanning all data sent to and from endpoints for known patterns associated with malicious activity. If something suspicious is found, the product will either prevent the file from being opened or remove it if it's already been opened.

What is Apt FireEye?

FireEye pays special attention to advanced persistent threats (APT) organizations that are directed and supported by a well-known nation state. APT attacks, unlike other cyber criminals, pursue their goals over months or years. They adapt to cyber defenses and retarget the same victim on a regular basis. These attacks can cause significant damage to data centers and other infrastructure with the loss of life if they are not stopped.

Apt refers to an attack that uses a program that has been signed with the correct digital certificates. This type of attack is called "certified" because it cannot be executed without these certificates. Apt attacks include: malware, spyware, zero day exploits, and toolbars. Toolbars are additional programs that often display advertising or collect information about users online. They can be bundled together with other software in downloadable files named "updates."

Malware includes viruses, Trojan horses, worms, and ransomware. Malicious code is written specifically to do harm. It can be used to steal personal information, log keystrokes, create spam emails, interfere with file systems, or shut down computers.

Spyware collects information about your internet usage including phone numbers you call, websites you visit, messages you send, photos you upload, and even what apps are installed on your device. It can also record your conversations through your microphone. Spyware can be found in applications you download from different sites or even Google Play.
