What effect, if any, did the attempted breach have on FireEye's performance?

Mandia: It's impossible to measure, first and foremost. Does it take a lot of time? Absolutely. I'm very proud of our security team, our internal investigative team, Steve Booth – our CISO – that had to deal with this. It just makes you realize firsthand the anonymity of the internet really bolsters some wrongdoers to do certain things. It impacted us tremendously in the amount of time and effort that went into investigating it. We're in the business of doing that, but we're in the business of doing that for our customers, and then, all of a sudden, we had to ramp up and do it for ourselves. So there's a lot of direct, real costs. As for how it influenced buyers' decisions, I don't consider it ever a positive upside when you have an anonymous person making false claims about your company.
