2017 Revenues: $751 million
Market Cap: $3.8 billion (11/1/2018)
A continued shift toward a more services-led business model put FireEye in a position to regain some of its momentum in 2018. Kevin Mandia took over as the CEO in June 2016 at a time when the once high-flying cybersecurity vendor appeared to be running out of steam. In the nearly two-and-a-half years since then, Mandia has transformed FireEye from an appliance-centric security vendor to one with multiple revenue streams, including services, threat intelligence, email security, and endpoint security. From getting almost one-third of its non-services revenues from physical appliances in 2015, a bulk of FireEye's revenues this year have come from newer products, such the company's endpoint defenses, threat intelligence, and Helix cloud-hosted security operations platform.
As a company that investigates more major data breaches than almost any other security vendor, FireEye has the added advantage of being particularly close to some of the latest tactics, techniques, and procedures used by adversaries in attacking enterprises.
