FireEye, ranked the fastest growing communications/networking company in North America on Deloitte’s 2013 Technology Fast 500, is transforming the IT security landscape to combat today’s advanced cyber attacks and we want you to be part of our team.


FireEye’s disruption in the IT security industry has been all over media outlets such as in BusinessWeek, Bloomberg TV, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and several others. A leader in advanced technology, FireEye has received the Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Award as well as the JPMorgan Chase Hall of Innovation Award. FireEye has also been recognized as one of the top 5 IPOs of 2013 by Wall Street Journal.


Following the acquisition of Mandiant, FireEye is now the ONLY company that can deliver a comprehensive platform to detect, resolve, and prevent advance attacks on a global basis. FireEye is now the go-to company for some of the largest enterprises and government agencies across the globe.


FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks. These highly sophisticated cyber attacks easily circumvent traditional signature-based defenses, such as next-generation firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and gateways. The FireEye Threat Prevention Platform provides real-time, dynamic threat protection without the use of signatures to protect an organization across the primary threat vectors and across the different stages of an attack life cycle. The core of the FireEye platform is a virtual execution engine, complemented by dynamic threat intelligence, to identify and block cyber attacks in real time. FireEye has over 1,500 customers across more than 40 countries, including over 100 of the Fortune 500.
