Q&A: FireEye CEO Mandia On His One-Year Anniversary, Partner Milestones And Work That's Left To Do
One Year In
When Kevin Mandia took over as CEO of FireEye a year ago, the company was ready for a change. Over the past year, the company has rolled out new technology – including its Helix platform – and pushed to repair its damaged relationship with the channel. The ultimate goal, Mandia told CRN, is to get FireEye on a path away from its on-premises sandbox roots to a full-fledged, cloud-based security company. In an interview with CRN around the anniversary of his June 15 start date in the role, Mandia talked about what he feels the security vendor has accomplished in the past year, the changes it has made, and what work remains to be done. Take a look at what he had to say.
