12 Tech Firms Join FireEye Cybersecurity Alliance; Ed Barry Comments

cyberMilpitas, California-based security company FireEye has added 12 technology companies to its partner ecosystem that aims to help customers address complex security challenges with a FireEye-built threat management platform.

The Cyber Security Coalition works to integrate FireEye’s Global Threat Management platform with various security offerings in an effort to simplify how enterprise clients avoid, detect, examine or respond to attacks, the company said Friday.

“Security teams are being hampered within today’s complex security environments that can slow operation and response times, exacerbating resource constraints,” noted Ed Barry, vice president of FireEye’s Cyber Security Coalition.

“Our latest enhancements and FireEye CSC partnerships address this by streamlining the functionality of our automation, orchestration and threat intelligence capabilities,” Barry added.

The coalition’s newly added partners are:

  • Anomali
  • BMC Software
  • Centrify
  • Centripetal Networks
  • Corvil
  • Defcon Cyber
  • Exabeam
  • Recorded Future
  • RiskVision
  • Siemplify
  • Syncurity
  • Ziften

Seven of these companies as well as current CSC members Hewlett Packard Enterprise, BeyondTrust, BlueCoat and Lieberman Software have integrated their platforms with FireEye’s Security Orchestrator or iSIGHT Intelligence technology.
