Helix does this by over 300 technology integrations with basic security tools in-use by customers, including next-generation firewalls, anti-virus and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) that provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by network hardware and applications.
“With Helix, we are delivering the basis of simpler, integrated, and automated security operations with a powerful, central hub that will reduce risk and costs for our customers,” Grady Summers, Chief Technology Officer at FireEye, said in a statement.
Helix combines machine, adversary, and breach intelligence to identify and detect threats.
