FireEye Adds Android Mobile App to Mobile Threat Prevention Platform


FireEye, Inc., the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced the expansion of the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention (MTP) platform with the introduction of the FireEye Mobile Security™ app. With the expansion, organizations are able to protect devices on the Android™ platform with FireEye Multi-vector Virtual Execution™ engine technology and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence™. Without relying on traditional signature-based tools, the enhancements to MTP add dynamic, malware-related security to mobile devices that complement existing Mobile Device Management tools. The new FireEye Mobile Security App will be generally available by the end of June 2014.

"Mobile security, like advanced persistent threat attacks, is a top security issue in enterprise today, yet it has largely relied on traditional defenses," said Manish Gupta, senior vice president of products, FireEye. "With almost half of the global workforce believed to be using their personal phone for work, the expanded Mobile Threat Prevention platform makes it easy for enterprises to guard their data from mobile threats using the advanced protection FireEye is known for."

Focused on the Android ecosystem, FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention provides administrators and employees visibility into the mobile threats currently on their networks and devices through a single dashboard and lightweight Android app. Using a hybrid-cloud model, the Android app performs signature-less analysis of user apps in the cloud while leaving sensitive employee information on-premise. With the new app and management tools, the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention platform, is now designed to identify unknown mobile threats in real time using behavioral analysis, block malicious apps from running, and alert users and administrators of suspicious apps.

"As mobile growth in the enterprise continues, the real risks will push upward into the application security layer. Simply looking at the security of the device of choice is insufficient," wrote Tyler Shields, senior analyst, Forrester in the October 2013 Forrester Research report, "It's Time To Level Up Your Mobile Application Security Program."

Spanning devices and applications, the FireEye enhanced Mobile Threat Prevention platform capabilities now include:

  • Immediate access to FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence -- Evaluate apps against an encyclopedia of more than 2 million pre-analyzed apps from Google Play® and third-party app stores. This includes threat scores and behavioral details with on-demand threat assessments.
  • Simplified app threat management -- Granular visibility into compromised devices as well as multiple enforcement options, including blocking malicious apps from running.
  • A combination of semantic, dynamic, and behavioral analysis -- Comprehensive, on-demand threat assessments for newly launched or custom-built apps.

The FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention platform provides industry-leading mobile malware detection and prevention capabilities and a cloud-based app threat assessment solution.
