Fired Up

FireEye has taken some heat from Wall Street recently, with its stock dropping 35 percent in 2015 and competition in the security market heating up. At the company's Momentum 2016 sales kickoff event in Las Vegas this week, CEO Dave DeWalt rallied partners and the FireEye team, telling them it was time for the company to fight back and win major market share from its competition. To do that, the company rolled out a new Essentials product line aimed at the midmarket, a new partner program, and said it had acquired security orchestration company Invotas. In an exclusive interview with CRN at the event, DeWalt discussed why these moves are so important, what the game plan is for the coming year (including if we can expect a FireEye buyout), and why 2016 will be the best year yet for the security vendor and its partners. Take a look.
