FireEye’s Web Malware Protection System will protect Travis Perkins against the web-based and zero-day attacks
UK based builders’ merchanting and home improvement company Travis Perkins has selected FireEye application to safeguarded itself against advanced persistent threats (APTs).
Travis Perkins has deployed FireEye’s advanced threat protection applications alongside existing security tools to address network security gaps.
FireEye’s Web Malware Protection System is claimed to protect Travis Perkins against the web-based and zero-day attacks that traditional firewalls, IPS, AV, and Web gateways often fail to catch.
In addition, the FireEye Email Malware Protection System secures the company against spear phishing email attacks that bypass anti-spam and reputation-based technologies.
Travis Perkins Information Security Specialist Simon Gray said before deploying FireEye, it had been targeted by a cyber attack that was caught by its internal defences before any harm could be done.
"FireEye’s proof-of-concept stage was particularly useful for us to see where the gaps in our network security were and what our existing defences were in danger of missing, or routinely returning as false positives," Gray said.
