Threat protection specialist FireEye has launched the FireEye NX 900, extending the FireEye virtual machine-based threat protection to remote or branch offices.
With the FireEye NX 900, organisations are said to be able to better protect one of the weakest links in enterprise security against advanced attacks. The FireEye NX 900 will be generally available before the end of the year.
An enterprise's security architecture is only as strong as its weakest link. Due to the high cost of securing remote or branch offices, they often do not have the same level of security as deployed at main corporate locations.
Manish Gupta, senior VP of products at FireEye, said: "Today, many large enterprises support numerous remote locations with power users working on high-value assets. Security professionals struggle to protect geographically dispersed locations and branch offices from advanced attacks. With the FireEye NX900, security teams can apply the same FireEye technology that blocks advanced attacks at headquarters to any branch office."
With the introduction of the FireEye NX 900, the NX series can help organisations scale their defences across a range of deployments, from multi-gigabit large offices to smaller, regional, and branch offices. The FireEye NX 900 is designed to include the following capabilities: Quick installation with time-to-protection in less than 30 minutes; Protection against advanced attacks and advanced persistent threats; Detection of pre-existing malware; Integration with the overall FireEye architecture to protect customers from threats across multiple vectors.
