FireEye has announced the availability of the FireEye Managed Defense system, a subscription service built to keep corporate networks safe.

The FireEye Managed Defense service is designed to help customers know when they are compromised through broad-scale coverage of network traffic and endpoints on the platform, as well as minimizing the damage caused by targeted attacks through features including "one click" containment.

In addition, by offloading resource and time-heavy protection for corporate networks on to FireEye, the company says that cyberattacks will cause reduced business disruption, keep a reputation intact and optimize response time.

The FireEye Managed Defense is provided within three subscription levels so organizations can align the service level depending on their team's skills and risk factors. The features available on the platform include monitoring via FireEye analysts and security teams and protection via FireEye investigation of alerts, including advanced warnings of advanced persistent threat (APT) campaigns.

"The tools attackers use to invade networks and steal digital assets are changing every day. The sophistication of advanced threats has outpaced what most organizations' security teams can handle on their own," said Yanek Korff, vice president of FireEye Managed Defense.

"Monitoring and response must be a 24x7 function. It must continually evolve to keep intruders at bay. FireEye Managed Defense integrates FireEye Multi-Vector Virtual Execution(TM) (MVX) engine technology and proprietary intelligence on the latest advanced attacker tactics and proactively hunts for attackers that have bypassed preventive defenses while providing customers with tools and context for effective and rapid response."

    Didn't this company also announce finding flaws in iOS this morning too??? And another security company interested in selling solutions find a bypass for Microsoft's EMET?

    Funny, even Microsoft describes all the things in EMET that are workarounds and "may not work in all situations", so if that is the only thing you are using and you are a business, then you need a better in-house grasp of security.

    And the Apple thing - so I guess iOS can run background tasks. So much for it not multitasking. And every program on there has to respond to keystrokes, taps, gestures and such. So the only thing this does is means an UNAUTHORIZED app can do the same and just pass them on to the intended program. Then send up what it grabbed later or in the background. Sounds like a good old-fashioned PC keylogger to me. Maybe Apple should add app verification. Oh, yeah, that can be bypassed too...

    The thing to me is here we are with the two reports and then a new service FROM THE SAME COMPANY that found one of them to help defend from security problems. I will not dispute the "flaws" as they may be. And will not debate that if you practice reasonably smart computing neither should affect you. But this is starting to sound like the current pharmaceutical company mode of operation.

    For entertainment sometime, there is plenty on the Internet about how pharma is operating at times. They will find out that an existing drug or possibly a new drug will "treat" a "disease" that is either rare or in the "just deal with it" category before. So suddenly it will be presented all over the place with "studies" and "reports" on the horrendous and debilitating properties of the disease and oh, by the way, our new (or rebranded/repackaged "wonder drug" will cure it. Perhaps the most famous is "restless leg" which wasn't even recognized as a true separate condition until a pharmaceutical company realized they has something that would ease leg pain. But most never bothered, until that was turned into a really bad condition. Then the drug was advertised to the hilt. Now was it really a disease or not. Never know. But have noticed that the commercials for the drug disappeared as soon as the profits from it went away. And there are countless others.

    So here we go. Are security companies finding diseases too??? Me thinks a bit of careful computing and smart downloading would cure this as fast as any enterprise security solution would. Oh, and the real spooks and cybercriminals won't be slowed down a bit. In fact, they may even be helped by all this.
