The FireEye FX series is a group of threat prevention platforms that protect against content-based attacks across a wide range of file types. The FireEye FX platforms analyze network file shares to detect and quarantine malware brought into the network through the Web, email, or manual means, such as online file sharing and portable file storage. The FX series thwarts the lateral spread of advanced malware that traditional and next-generation firewalls (NGFW), IPS, AV, and gateways miss. Advanced targeted attacks use sophisticated malware and advanced persistent threat (APT) tactics, not only to penetrate defenses, but also to spread laterally and establish a long-term foothold in the network.
The FireEye FX series of threat prevention platforms analyze file shares using the patented FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine that detects zero-day malicious code embedded in common file types. The FX series performs recursive, scheduled, and on-demand scanning of accessible network file shares to identify and quarantine resident malware without impact to corporate productivity.
