UC Berkeley chooses Firewire's "Virtual Victim" approach


When UC Berkeley learned of the FireEye 4200 appliance and its virtual victim machine security approach, a solution to their wireless security concerns was in sight. The University deployed FireEye 4200’s alongside the central wireless controllers to offer accurate, agent-less network malware control protecting the internal EECS network against zero-day, targeted malware that sought to take remote control over university and student computing resources.

In particular, FireEye offered

- Targeted malware security
- A network-based security approach
- Reliable, automated quarantines
- Easy deployment, use, & management

FireEye specializes on preventing self-propagating malware from spreading throughout the internal network. The FireEye Attack Confirmation Technology (FACT) engine uses virtual victim machines to analyze real-time network traffic flows pinpointing targeted malware and remote control attacks–all without relying on signatures or IT forensic analysis. The FACT engine enables the FireEye 4200’s unparalleled ability to accurately identify malicious attacks, including targeted attacks that seek to compromise and take over remote control of computing assets.


Interesting approach, this FACT technology. Take a look at it here.
