MILPITAS, Calif., April 21, 2021 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced the expansion of its Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform to include its new Mandiant Automated Defense module, creating a powerful, multi-vendor XDR capability. Mandiant Automated Defense is the latest module available in the Mandiant Advantage platform, joining the Mandiant Threat Intelligence and Mandiant Security Validation modules.

Organizations struggle to consistently, quickly, and accurately assess and investigate the multitude of alerts received by their security operations centers (SOC) daily. In February 2021 alone, Mandiant Automated Defense reduced more than 52 billion customer alerts down to less than 700 prioritized investigations. Formerly Respond Software’s virtual analyst product, Mandiant Automated Defense dramatically increases Mandiant's ability to scale its unique expertise and intelligence as software delivered through an easy-to-deploy SaaS interface. 

“Skill shortages, an overwhelming number of alerts, and even misconfigured tools all contribute to the challenges faced by the modern SOC,” said Chris Key, EVP of Products, Mandiant. “Our customers have been asking us for technology that embeds Mandiant expertise and intelligence into their environment at scale – Mandiant Automated Defense is another of our products that does just that.”

Mandiant Automated Defense addresses the people, process, and technology challenges faced by cybersecurity defenders in the SOC. Automated Defense injects Mandiant's unique expertise and intelligence directly into its alert investigation. This automated triage process enables security personnel to prioritize and focus on the most relevant threats, reducing time wasted on false positives.  

"Enterprises are truly changing the way they manage security operations," said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst and Fellow, Enterprise Strategy Group. "Through Respond Software, Mandiant has added an innovator in security operations that can help enable security teams better serve customers, increase productivity, and achieve better cyber security business outcomes. Mandiant Automated Defense can help customers truly work without boundaries – outside of their current tools and processes." 

Supporting more than 60 security technologies, cloud platforms and network management tools, the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform works with best-of-breed, multi-vendor controls to deliver world-class XDR capabilities. The Mandiant Advantage platform now includes three modules: 

Mandiant Threat Intelligence 

Mandiant Security Validation (formerly Verodin)

Mandiant Automated Defense (formerly Respond Software)
