California-based security firm FireEye announced its new Helix platform that reduces manual processes and offers customers the ability to work with third-party security products.
The company claims that many existing security systems require manual processes that result in dozens of alerts.
Specifically, FireEye says Helix’s capabilities include the following:
- It is able to integrate and analyze alerts from all third-party products within customer environments. This allows false positives to be weeded out, presenting only actionable information and increasing the value of third-party tools.
- It is equipped with a single user interface and customizable dashboards.
- It has built-in playbooks that can orchestrate and automate response and address threats in real-time using machine-learning and behavioral analysis. This allows for a quicker response when compared to manually responding to a threat.
Additionally, the platform can be accessed via private clouds, public clouds, or on-premises. The platform is currently being offered in beta to customers and will be generally available in late first quarter 2017.
FireEye reported losses in its third quarter, but not as much as analysts were expecting. FireEye has been affected by heavy competition from firewall vendors as well as slump in security spending, which has impacted the entire market.
