Frost & Sullivan Report Ranks FireEye Threat Analytics Platform as Leader in Key SIEM Segments
Analyst Firm Finds FireEye User Behavior Analytics and Threat Hunting Capabilities to Be Key Differentiators for SIEM Solutions
MILPITAS, Calif. – November 14, 2017 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced that Frost & Sullivan has ranked the FireEye® Threat Analytics Platform™ (TAP™) for leading technologies in security incident and event management (SIEM) solutions.
In the report ‘Security Information and Event Management Global Market Analysis, Forecast to 2021 – The Transition to SIEM 3.0,’ the analyst firm recognized FireEye TAP for its industry-leading User Behavior Analytics (UBA), which have become differentiating features between platform providers. In addition, the report identified that the threat hunting capabilities in FireEye TAP go beyond traditional alerts by offering end users a Guided Investigation section that informs security teams of the best approach to dealing with an attack, based on real-world expertise from Mandiant® incident responders.
The report also found that most SIEM customers were burdened with implementation costs that exceed the initial software purchase cost by 3-5 times and that users often spend more time maintaining rather than using their SIEM. FireEye TAP excelled in cost and efficiency for managing security events rather than maintenance.
“FireEye TAP’s advanced capabilities have disrupted the SIEM market,” said FireEye CTO Grady Summers. “Working in conjunction with our revolutionary security operations platform – FireEye Helix – FireEye TAP enables customers to operationalize detection with our leading intelligence and orchestration for a truly security-focused solution. Customers can finally move beyond compliance and focus on protecting their organizations from the threats that matter.”
“FireEye has a unique approach to security because they are able to capture their insights from investigating breaches and design a SIEM solution based on frontline experience,” said Christopher Kissel, senior analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “The advantage of this approach came through in our report, as FireEye led in the User Behavior Analytics and threat hunting capabilities areas, key capabilities for any organization building a modern security program.”
