FireEye Partners Can Gain From Helix, Its New Security Platform
Mumbai: US-based cyber security company FireEye has just announced that its Helix automated security platform is now available globally including in India.
FireEye Helix addresses customers’ security problems by applying FireEye “iSIGHT” intelligence, orchestration and Mandiant expertise to any security operations environment and delivers simplified and integrated security operations experience.
Helix does this by over 300 technology integrations with basic security tools in-use by customers, including next-generation firewalls, anti-virus and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) that provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by network hardware and applications.
“With Helix, we are delivering the basis of simpler, integrated, and automated security operations with a powerful, central hub that will reduce risk and costs for our customers,” Grady Summers, Chief Technology Officer at FireEye, said in a statement.
Helix combines machine, adversary, and breach intelligence to identify and detect threats. It delivers automation and orchestration that increases response speed, shrinks alert-to-fix time and lowers cost of operations.
For the existing FireEye customers, simple upgrade programs are available. Additional features are available as add-ons subscriptions to the Helix platform, including ‘Expanded Automation Capabilities’, ‘Enhanced Malware Analysis’ and more.
As far as its channel is concerned, FireEye said the news enables channel partners to use a single platform to unify customers’ security operations programs while gaining value from their in-place security infrastructure. The security company claims this will bring partner opportunities in implementation and design orchestration playbooks to automate time required for low-level response tasks.
The company which considers India as one of its strategic markets, is looking to rope in more channel partners to enhance its focus on India’s critical infrastructure space. FireEye said last year, it has partnered with Delhi based, Inflow Technologies for national distribution and has around 15 resellers, operating across the country.
