FireEye Network Security Review

It helps to detect and prevent zero day attacks.

What is most valuable?

  • Call back
  • Zero day attack

How has it helped my organization?

We have discovered different malware which was basically a zero day attack and call back.

What needs improvement?

Cluster option is not available in NX, and for false positives we need some customization configuration available, such as a whitelist.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for one year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encounter.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encounter.

No issues encounter.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's very good.

Technical Support:

It's very good.

Different IPS and end point products were used. FireEye has a different concept for the handling of ATP and malware with a virtual machine which resides in their box.

How was the initial setup?

It was simple and straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We have implemented it ourselves on customer premises.

It is a good product to implement, especially where the existing technology fails to detect zero day attacks.

NX, CM, EX, and HX
