FireEye Network Security Valuable Features

It protects from signature-based attacks and signature-less attacks. The sandboxing technology, invented by FireEye, is very valuable. Our customers go for FireEye because of the sandboxing feature. When there is a threat or any malicious activity with a signature, it can be blocked by IPS. However, attacks that do not have any signatures and are very new can only be blocked by using the sandboxing feature, which is available only in FireEye. So, FireEye has both engines. It has an IPS engine and a sandbox engine, which is the best part. You can get complete network protection by using FireEye. 

I also like its logging method. Its logging is very powerful and useful for forensic purposes. You can see the traffic or a specific activity or how something entered your network and where it went.

There are sandbox capabilities. You can submit malicious files and great feedback, including if there is malware, what it is doing, et cetera.

The way it works is better than others thanks to the sandbox. It can give you simulations in different operating systems and applications and give your real insights from the perspective of a real environment.  You gain insights into evasion techniques. 

It's not just running in the background on an endpoint. You can do tests and learn. You can do behavior analysis. That's the main feature. 

The solution can scale.

I think there are some very functional features in FireEye when you compare the solution to traditional SIEM solutions. Traditional SIEM solutions don't have their own IPS/IDS functionalities and they integrate with third party WANs. In contrast, FireEye has created an ecosystem of products integrated with their own SIEM, which is cloud-based and integrates with network security, email security, host security and the like.

The most valuable feature is the network security module. It is better than other solutions and it can make and find electrical movement.

Also, the attack vector is a feature that no one else offers.

Overall, it's a great solution.
