In the field of cybersecurity, companies must anticipate the future needs of clients and where new technologies are headed. FireEye, so far has been able to keep pace with the rest of the field. Recently, they announced their new cloud security solution as well as strategic partnership with iboss.
The company’s EVP of products and customer success, Grady Summers, had this to say, “The rapid adoption of cloud services has provided organizations with a world of new opportunities. But with new opportunities come new cyber threats. These days, more than half of the breaches we respond to involve cloud infrastructures.”
He continues, “Today we announce new capabilities that will empower organizations to protect the assets and workloads they’re running in the cloud. Delivered as a service, our best-in-class threat detection, intelligence, and protection are now accessible to any customer regardless of location, whether they’re in the cloud or a hybrid environment. We’re also making our threat detection available to third-parties to aid in the creation of custom web apps, as no two organizations’ paths to the cloud are paved the same.”
FireEye has tremendous reach so there is no doubt the offerings will be quickly sold into their existing client base. Over 8,200 customers across 103 countries, including more than 50 percent of the Forbes Global 2000 leverage FireEye technology.
In its partnership with iboss, FireEye will offer advanced threat protection and breach detection designed to quickly and easily protect end traffic, users, devices, networks, assets, and data from known and unknown threats. Customers will have the ability to set access policies that follow users and devices wherever they go. More specifically, the partnership yields the following:
• Network Security protection that follows users
• SSL traffic inspection and protection at scale
• Global points of presence
• Granular control of where user data resides
• Control of access to cloud applications
• Extended user access privileges in the cloud
iboss is built on a proprietary containerized architecture designed 100% for the cloud. It secures user Internet access from anywhere, including in and out of a company’s physical network perimeter. iboss is backed by Goldman Sachs.
