NetCitadel And FireEye Partner To Deliver Real-Time Security Incident Response And Protection Against APTs And Malware Attacks

NetCitadel integrates with FireEye Threat Prevention Platform
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Nov. 5, 2013 -- NetCitadel, Inc., the pioneer in innovative threat management solutions, today announced that its Threat Management Platform has integrated with the leading threat protection platform from FireEye®, Inc. FireEye is the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber-attacks, enabling immediate response and comprehensive protection against today's advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks. NetCitadel also announced that it has joined the FireEye Fuel Partner Program.

FireEye's platform features the patented Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine that conducts signature-less analysis atop a patented, virtualization technology purpose-built for security. The NetCitadel solution uniquely adds rich context data to events from threat detection devices such as FireEye to facilitate rapid and intelligent decisions and real-time responses to security events as they happen. Together, this integration equips today's incident response teams with the security analysis, intelligence and means of protection to best keep their networks safe.

"As the leader in Advanced Malware Detection, FireEye recognizes the need for innovative solutions like the NetCitadel Threat Management Platform," said Didi Dayton, VP of WW Strategic Alliances at FireEye. "By helping incident response teams add deeper context and flexible response options to detected threats, our integrated solutions enable our mutual customers to effectively respond to threats."

With this integration, security analysts and incident response teams can now verify, prioritize, and contain threats detected by FireEye faster and more efficiently than ever before. The NetCitadel integration with FireEye is designed to enable security teams to:

· Surround FireEye events with rich context including Indicators of Compromise (IOC) data, IP reputation, and user identity

· Build and maintain centralized enforcement lists and objects that can be applied to large, multi-vendor security device environments

· Enable fully or partially automatic enforcement across thousands of security devices from multiple industry standard vendors

The evolution of APTs and advanced malware has reduced the effectiveness of traditional security enforcement point solutions. By actively linking multi-vendor security enforcement points with solutions such as FireEye's threat detection offering, NetCitadel's Threat Management Platform transforms traditionally rigid, static security devices into dynamic defenses capable of automatically responding to malicious attacks in real-time.

"FireEye is the leader in enabling companies to protect themselves from modern malware and attack methods, such as zero-day attacks and APTs," said Neil Stratz, NetCitadel VP of Sales and Marketing. "With NetCitadel providing actionable intelligence and context around detected security events, the combined solution gives security analysts the tools they need to focus on addressing the highest priority threats and adapting policies for comprehensive protection of their environments."
