FireEye protects critical data, intellectual property, and networks against zero-day malware threats such as Web-based malware and botnets that perpetrate cybercrimes at the expense of enterprises and consumers. Our patent-pending technology detects inbound 0-day malware attacks as well as outbound callbacks to unauthorized 3rd parties.
