OpenDNS And FireEye Partner To Amplify Protection Against Advanced Cyber Attacks

Company announces integration of its Umbrella security service with the FireEye Web Malware Protection System

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 5, 2014 - OpenDNS, the world's leading provider of cloud security services, today announced the integration of its Umbrella security service with the FireEye Web Malware Protection System (MPS). The combination of OpenDNS predictive threat detection and enforcement with FireEye behavioral analysis provides real-time protection against custom malware, zero-day exploits and advanced persistent threats (APT). Using OpenDNS and FireEye together, customers can extend security policies to the cloud and transparently protect any user and any device, both on and off the network.

OpenDNS will demonstrate its Umbrella security service with FireEye integration at the FireEye 2014 Momentum Partner Conference in Las Vegas this week.

According to Gartner, Inc., "Today's attacks are stealthy and target specific enterprises, individuals and data. A typical targeted attack will exploit multiple weaknesses to achieve its ultimate goal -- usually the theft of data, fraud, or damage to the enterprise."

Today more than ever, employees are working outside of the secured network perimeter, leaving devices vulnerable and increasingly exposed to malicious attacks. As a result, employees bring compromised devices back inside the protected network.

The combination of OpenDNS's cloud security infrastructure and the FireEye allows organizations to block both known and zero-day attacks whether the employee is inside the perimeter or not. Malicious activity detected by FireEye is automatically fed to the Umbrella service to enhance security policy enforcement, protecting customers from infection and preventing data leakage.

"OpenDNS is a pioneer in cloud security," said Didi Dayton, vice president of worldwide strategic alliances at FireEye. "Through this partnership, we are able to extend FireEye's advanced threat protection to the cloud and provide centralized security policy enforcement to any device, on or off the network. OpenDNS offers a unique solution that resonates with our customers and we're excited to welcome them to our partner community."

OpenDNS uses a big data analytics platform that harnesses the collective intelligence of the Internet to discover, predict and block cyber threats without tuning by security administrators. FireEye uses a unique automated approach to test suspicious executable files in a safe virtual environment and analyze their behavior to detect sophisticated malware. To centrally protect all on and off network devices against zero-day and multi-protocol cyber attacks, FireEye will deliver alerts to OpenDNS when new threats are detected.

"This partnership is truly a force-multiplier for Enterprise security," said David Ulevitch, CEO of OpenDNS. "The OpenDNS-FireEye integration provides the most comprehensive protection against cyber attacks and extends enforcement beyond the eroding network perimeter. Together we can detect, alert and block advanced threats before damage can be done."

Availability and Pricing

The Umbrella service with FireEye integration is available immediately from OpenDNS.
