FireEye Inc. has launched a cloud-based platform intended to help customers address the mobile threat landscape.
The mobile threat prevention platform works to assess Android applications for threats within FireEye’s virtual execution system in order to help organizations implement security measures on their mobile infrastructure, FireEye said Thursday.
Dawn Song, FireEye fellow and associate professor of computer science at UC Berkeley, said those threats cover email, Web, file and mobile vectors.
“Today’s cybercriminals are using all the resources at their disposal to compromise an organization and steal intellectual property,” Song added.
FireEye designed the new platform for organizations to detect malicious apps and analyze the behavior of the apps.
The service also features an app threat database, APIs for mobile management and endpoint integration and threat intelligence sharing through FireEye’s cloud platform.
FireEye plans to release the product by the end of 2013.
