FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence Now Available in Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to Help Customers Identify More Attacks and Gain Valuable Information about Activity Groups Targeting an Organization

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2016) - FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced FireEye iSIGHT® Intelligence is now accessible to Microsoft customers through Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (WDATP), a new service that helps enterprises detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks on their networks. As part of their subscription to WDATP, Microsoft enterprise customers gain valuable insight about the threat actors that are targeting them, helping improve their security posture and prioritize identified threats strengthening their overall situational awareness. 

FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence is a proactive, forward-looking means of qualifying threats poised to disrupt business based on the intents, tools and tactics of the attacker. This high-fidelity, adversary-focused intelligence is designed to deliver an unparalleled view of the global threat landscape, extending visibility beyond the typical cyber-attack lifecycle -- prioritizing and contextualizing risks before, during and after attack.

WDATP customers have access to a set of FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence technical indicators, or IoC's (Indicators of Compromise) that enable WDATP to alert when these indicators are found on their customers' computers or networks and then display a profile of the involved attacker. This profile includes valuable information such as:

  • The main motivation of the attacker
  • Related tools
  • Target sectors and geographies
  • A description of the actor and how they operate

For security teams that want more contextual intelligence, the full set of FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence IoCs and all related reports and technical information, a direct link is available to subscribe to FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence. This subscription can also be consumed programmatically through the FireEye iSIGHT Intelligence API.
