Intelligence-led security company FireEye announced the availability of their proprietary Network Security 8.3 and Endpoint Security 4.8 softwares to help enhance detection and investigation of advanced attacks against servers, whether in the cloud, on premise, or in hybrid environments. 

The latest updates to company's platform would reportedly allow organizations to detect, investigate, and remediate advanced attacks like web shells, ransomware, cryptomining, botnets, and shell scripts in days or hours instead of weeks or months.

“Servers are highly targeted by adversaries using the most sophisticated techniques,” FireEye's CTO Grady Summers said. “Our platform capabilities introduced today combine detection and visibility across the network and endpoint to quickly find threats targeting Windows or Linux based servers. FireEye customers can now more quickly investigate and triage lateral threats at the first sign of a breach, whether their servers are based on-premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid.” 

Summers added, “Web shells are one of the most common pathways into the network, and we’ve implemented new defenses to protect against these attacks. Through this integration across the network and endpoint, FireEye’s unique approach to detecting web shell activity enables rapid identification of malicious activity so security practitioners can detect these attacks in minutes and quickly respond by containing the server, webpage or app.”
