FireEye's DeWalt: 10 Ways Channel Could Transform Threat Detection


Channel Partners See Value In Advanced Threat Detection

Early adopters of FireEye's advanced threat detection platform are choosing a layered approach to detecting custom malware and so-called advanced persistent threats, say solution providers. Firms are investing in products that specialize in network analysis, malware inspection and endpoint behavioral analysis vendors, said Dan Thormodsgaard, vice president of solutions architecture at FishNet Security. FireEye and other emerging vendors are part of that strategy, he said.

FireEye recently rolled out a new data center appliance and threat detection for Android devices. The company released earnings data last week, beating financial analyst estimates for the quarter. In a wide-ranging interview with CRN, FireEye CEO Dave DeWaltr and the company's new channel chief, Steve Pataky, addressed the company's go-to-market strategy, the product road map, and the ecosystem of services and third-party integration being built around the advanced threat detection platform.
