California Department of General Services Expands Endpoint Security Options

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, has announced that its endpoint security solution is now available for purchase via the California Software Licensing Program (SLP) Plus vehicle, the company said.

The SLP Plus contract vehicle, managed by the California Department of General Services, Procurement Division, ensures that FireEye® Endpoint Security complies with the state Endpoint Protection Standard SIMM 5355-A.

Inclusion as an SLP Plus-approved endpoint security vendor means California state agencies can avoid a formal proof-of-concept or a request for proposal to purchase, enabling government agencies across the state to easily procure more advanced cyber security capabilities from vendors like FireEye.

Unlike traditional endpoint security vendors that provide one-size-fits-all solutions to every customer, FireEye Endpoint Security is designed to deliver comprehensive defense using fully customizable protection, detection and response modules. This module creation and review is supported by the world´s Mandiant® frontline responders. Through this framework, organizations have an efficient way to deploy advanced features that can be tailored down to an individual level should they choose.

The inclusion on the SLP Plus contract continues a decorated 12 months for FireEye Endpoint Security, in which it was named a winner in the SC Awards Europe 2020 and the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, delivered the most comprehensive coverage across all detection categories in the latest MITRE ATT&CK® evaluation, earned first place in the US Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) Artificial Intelligence Applications to Autonomous Cybersecurity Challenge, and was designated by the Cyber Catalyst by Marsh℠ program for being a solution that can have a meaningful impact on reducing major cyber risks like data breaches, business interruption, data theft or corruption, and cyber extortion.

FireEye Endpoint Security includes four integrated engines: machine learning (MalwareGuard), behaviour-based (ExploitGuard), signature-based (Malware Protection) and intelligence-based (Indicators of Compromise), to provide a layered defense against known and unknown threats. These engines are continually updated with threat intelligence unique to FireEye and designed to keep pace with evolving threats. For additional details, visit https://fireeye.com/endpoint
