Addressing Areas Of Weakness

FireEye announced its biggest acquisition in a half-decade Tuesday with the $250 million purchase of security instrumentation vendor Verodin, which will help provide businesses with the evidence needed to measure, manage, and improve their cybersecurity effectiveness.

The Milpitas, Calif.-based platform security vendor conducted 700 security breach investigations in 2018, and employs more than 150 intelligence analysts across 19 countries that are fluent in 30 languages, according to FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia. Infusing FireEye's threat intelligence into Verodin's automated platform will put customers in a better position to detect attacks before they occur, he said.
