News of the Week: FireEye Acquires Va.-based Cybersecurity Tech Firm

 
May 7, 2014 - PRLog -- FireEye has agreed to acquire a Virginia-based network forensics firm in order to combine its cybersecurity platform with nPulse Technology’s security system.

This buy comes just months after FireEye bought cybersecurity firm Mandiant for more than $1 billion.

David DeWalt, FireEye chairman and CEO, said that his firm aims to bolster its ability to “protect and remediate before a compromise turns catastrophic” by incorporating “real-time breach information from the endpoint and the network” using a single platform.

“The new reality of security is that every organization has some piece of malicious code within their network,” DeWalt added.

FireEye intends to add nPulse data packet capture technology to recently acquired Mandiant's defense portfolio.

“With the addition of the nPulse solution, the FireEye platform will have a ‘flight recorder’ for security analytics,” DeWalt said.

“The more important question is has that code been able to execute any compromising activity that puts the organization at risk, and if so, what data left the network?"

The deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014.
