Signature-less Malware Detection Features in Inline Threat Prevention

FireEye : 07 May, 2010  (New Product)
Series of inline network security appliances from FireEye feature signature-less malware protection for improved zero-hour threat detection
FireEye has launched a full line of inline network security appliances capable of stopping the 90 percent of Modern Malware attacks that traditional intrusion prevention, Web filtering and antivirus products miss. FireEye's integrated Malware Protection System breaks the Modern Malware infection lifecycle and inoculates customers from future attacks to protect customers from both broad and targeted information theft.

FireEye Malware Protection Systems offer a fully integrated, inbound and outbound malware blocking defence to break the Modern Malware infection lifecycle in all of its phases. The new FireEye network security appliances now blocks both targeted attacks and transmissions by existing malware infections based upon local network malware analysis and global data from the FireEye MAX Cloud Intelligence network. The FireEye MPS appliances use a patent-pending, real-time Malware-VM filter to accurately detect and stop zero-hour, signature-evading malware and targeted attacks, which often are embedded in Web, PDF, and other online content. The Malware-VM filter analyzes for zero-hour malware using virtual machines that run a cross-matrix of operating systems and endpoint software, such as various web browser software stacks, to block attacks aimed at known and unknown OS and application vulnerabilities. FireEye's solution also incorporates a multi-protocol Malware-Callback filter to block outbound callbacks stopping data exfiltration attacks that signature and list-based defences miss.

"With FireEye I know I am catching virtually all of the attacks that matter. The extremely low false positive rate gives me confidence in implementing FireEye's new blocking capability. Now, with the FireEye MPS I've got true integrated defence against the whole lifecycle of infection," said Aaron Truax, Network Security Analyst for the Illinois General Assembly. "FireEye's dynamic approach to addressing the Modern Malware challenge is something that we believe can significantly help increase our threat protection and improve our overall security posture."

FireEye Malware Protection Systems stop Modern Malware, while also reducing IT operational costs by delivering the most comprehensive and accurate detection of attacks at near-zero false positive rates, with near-zero latency. Delivered in an easy-to-deploy appliance form factor, the FireEye solution deploys into the network without requiring any tuning.

'The evolution of targeted threats means enterprises need to evolve their network defences, as well,' says John Pescatore, VP and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner. 'Next generation firewalls need to be deployed and augmented with wirespeed, next generation malware detection capabilities that will prevent attacks such as the 'Aurora' event that compromised several high tech companies' systems.'

'By deploying next generation threat protection inline, IT departments can finally stop the Modern Malware attacks ending the risk to sensitive data,' said Ashar Aziz, Founder and CEO of FireEye. 'FireEye's integrated approach enables the most comprehensive protection against Modern Malware that attacks across multiple protocols preventing cybercrime, cyber espionage, and cyber reconnaissance attempts."

New features in the FireEye Malware Protection System include:

• Active Blocking Of Inbound And Outbound Channels: FireEye's appliances include fast path blocking to efficiently stop known attacks and malware callbacks. In addition, the appliances combine a real-time Malware-VM filter that captures and confirms zero-hour attacks with a dynamic Malware-Callback filter that stops outbound transmissions destined for criminal Command and Control (CnC) servers.
• New Appliance Models: The new FireEye 2000 and 7000 series appliances are enterprise-class security gateways deployed at the Internet egress point. The 2000 series supports egress bandwidths of up to 50 Mbps while the 7000 series supports up to 1 Gbps.

"Without an integrated defence, Modern Malware will flourish by penetrating the gaping holes in today's defence strategies," said Marc Maiffret, chief security architect at FireEye. "By deploying a next generation Modern Malware protection system, FireEye customers can safeguard their intellectual property and sensitive customer information from organized cyber criminals and finally break out of the Modern Malware infection lifecycle."
