Stopping The Bad Guys

FireEye worked with law enforcement and spent hundreds of hours investigating a hacker's July claim that he had breached the company's corporate network, all of which culminated in an arrest Thursday.

In the Milpitas, Calif.-based company's third quarter, which ended Sept. 30, FireEye saw sales climb 1.7 percent to $189.6 million and recorded a loss of $72.9 million, improved from a loss of $123.4 million in the same quarter last year.

CEO Kevin Mandia and CFO Frank Verdecanna talked with CRN before the company's earnings call about how they addressed the unsuccessful corporate network hacking attempt with customers, the impact of the Equifax breach on their Mandiant incident response services business, and why the company's new endpoint protection offering, FireEye Endpoint 4.0, is its "first true channel-friendly product."

Mandia and Verdecanna also addressed how their Helix platform helps customers make sense of alerts, the benefits of having a single interface for all their products, and how their new CMO will help FireEye stake out a thought leadership position in the industry.
