Solutionary Announces MSSP Support for FireEye Malware Protection System

Cross-Device Correlation via ActiveGuard Platform Combines With FireEye Advanced Malware Protection to Provide Unprecedented Anti-Malware Protection

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2013) - Solutionary, an NTT Group Security Company (NYSE: NTT) and leading pure-play managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced that it will monitor and manage the FireEye Web Malware Protection System (MPS) to protect enterprises from advanced malware. Solutionary participates in the Fuel Solution Provider program as a FireEye MSSP partner.

The combination of FireEye with the security monitoring capabilities of the patented, cloud-based ActiveGuard® service platform and expert device management makes security more operationally efficient, providing organizations with faster time to response, reduced false positives and increased visibility. As malware has become more targeted and increasingly complex, the ability to detect and respond to advanced malware is a critical component of a security program.

The ActiveGuard platform processes billions of log lines a day from firewalls, IDS/IPS, network devices, applications, endpoints and more. Using big data analytics, ActiveGuard can correlate events from these devices with alerts from FireEye MPS, providing additional security context to minimize the impact and spread of malware. Solutionary provides 24/7 monitoring for FireEye and over 125 other device types to detect and respond to malicious activity.

The Security Device Management Service for FireEye MPS keeps Solutionary customers' appliances patched, updated and properly configured. Trained, certified Solutionary engineers act as an extension of client internal teams, managing FireEye MPS appliances on the behalf of clients. As alerts come in, Solutionary analysts investigate the alerts along with other activity detected by ActiveGuard, notifying clients when necessary. This reduces the number of false positive events, saving time and freeing client internal teams to focus on other priorities.

"We did extensive research on the data output from the FireEye MPS so that clients get the maximum value possible from having an MSSP monitor and manage their FireEye investment," said Don Gray, chief security strategist for Solutionary. "Combining the big data analytics capability of ActiveGuard with the advanced malware detection of FireEye MPS delivers unprecedented anti-malware protection for enterprises. A fully-managed and monitored anti-malware solution helps to protect enterprise infrastructures and sensitive data."

"We are proud to partner with Solutionary," said Didi Dayton, FireEye vice president of alliances. "The FireEye partnership with Solutionary provides enterprises with a robust and flexible approach to combat cyber attacks to help bolster defenses."

ActiveGuard is able to accurately collect and correlate vast amounts of data from virtually any device capable of producing a log file, such as applications, databases, endpoints, firewalls, IDS/IPS, UTMs, WAFs, FIMs and network devices. ActiveGuard enriches gathered security data with a variety of contextual information such as vulnerabilities, assets, GeoIP, malicious hosts, and privileged and non-privileged users to detect threats and increase accuracy.

Using multiple detection methods -- anomaly detection, statistical analysis and heuristic analysis -- ActiveGuard is able to better identify and protect against advanced threats. The advanced analytics in ActiveGuard, in combination with threat intelligence from the Security Engineering Research Team (SERT), help to detect advanced threats and zero-day attacks.
