Added Protection From Signature-Less Malware Identification

FireEye : 16 February, 2011  (New Product)
FireEye Networks aims to eliminate spear phishing attacks with new e-mail malware protection system that uses real-time embedded URL and attachment analysis
FireEye Email Malware Protection System has been released that stops targeted email attacks, also known as spear phishing, to prevent malware-induced network breaches and data theft. With the launch of the Email MPS, enterprises and government agencies can protect data and networks from recurring Modern Malware infections and advanced, persistent threats (APTs) that attack using malicious email content and attachments.



“The Email MPS represents a new generation of messaging security protecting against email attacks using malicious URLs and attachments exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities,” said Ashar Aziz, CEO, CTO and Founder of FireEye. “FireEye's integrated MPS solutions protect organizations across the Web and Email attack vectors. Customers now have the most comprehensive protection against the Modern Malware used to conduct cybercrime, cyber espionage, and cyber reconnaissance attempts.”



FireEye’s new Email MPS features the Real-time Attachment and URL Analysis engine that evaluates emails for zero-hour malware using virtual machines that run a cross-matrix of operating systems and applications, such as various web browsers and plug-ins. This dynamic analysis enables FireEye to detect and stop spear phishing email attacks aimed at known and truly unknown OS and application vulnerabilities. With global data from the FireEye MAX Cloud Intelligence network, customers get the latest security content about malicious attachments targeting zero-day vulnerabilities, malware callback channels, and URL blacklist updates. The incorporation of real-time, dynamic analysis coupled with global security content enables customers to stop the email-borne Modern Malware infection cycle. With blended attacks using email and the Web on the increase, it is critical to have a zero-hour, signature-less malware protection engine to analyze links in email as well as file attachments, such as PDF documents, Microsoft Office® files, multi-media content, and other file formats.



"Using the FireEye Email MPS, we’ve been able to stop over three dozen separate spear phishing attacks over the course of two weeks,” said an IT administrator at a defense contractor, who asked to remain anonymous. “In our case, we’ve seen no false quarantines, and by integrating with our FireEye Web MPS, we can quickly trace a zero-day Web exploit back to its spear phishing email preventing a breach and saving at least 320 hours of forensic analysis for just one of the incidents.”



The FireEye Email MPS is an easy-to-deploy appliance that requires no tuning and deploys as an MTA (Message Transfer Agent), SPAN device, or as a BCC destination. The FireEye solution deploys behind existing email control points like antispam gateways. The new Email MPS family comprises the Email MPS 8000 Series for high email volume environments and the Email MPS 5000 Series for mid-to-large email volumes.
