OpenDNS partners with FireEye to beef up enterprise security

OpenDNS partners with FireEye to beef up enterprise security 

“This partnership is truly a force-multiplier for enterprise security,” said David Ulevitch, CEO, OpenDNS, in a release. “The OpenDNS-FireEye integration provides the most comprehensive protection against cyber attacks and extends enforcement beyond the eroding network perimeter. Together we can detect, alert and block advanced threats before damage can be done.”

With the partnership, OpenDNS combines its predictive threat detection with FireEye’s behaviour analysis to give customers protection against “custom malware, zero-day exploits, and advanced persistent threats.”

Customers can extend the protection to the cloud, ensuring that all users and devices – both on and off the network – are secure.

This means that users who take their devices outside the secured network will remain protected from malicious attacks, which will in turn protect the network from potential infection by devices coming and going across the perimeter.

“OpenDNS is a pioneer in cloud security,” said Didi Dayton, VP, worldwide strategic alliances, FireEye. “Through this partnership, we are able to extend FireEye’s advanced threat protection to the cloud and provide centralized security policy enforcement to any device, on or off the network. OpenDNS offers a unique solution that resonates with our customers and we’re excited to welcome them to our partner community.”

OpenDNS will demonstrate the integration at the FireEye 2014 Momentum Partner Conference in Las Vegas this week.
