MILPITAS, Calif., March 25, 2021 FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced that it was recognized as a strong performer in the Forrester Research, Inc. report: “The Forrester WaveTM: Managed Detection and Response, Q1 2021.”

According to the Forrester report, “Mandiant Managed Defense — and its various iterations — is considered one of the first, if not the first, iterations of MDR that existed. That legacy remains in the service and for good reason.”

“We believe our ranking for ‘strength of current offering’ is a testament to Mandiant’s ability to protect our customers with cutting-edge frontline detections,” said Marshall Heilman, Executive Vice President, Managed Defense and FLARE, FireEye. “Our speed in integrating nation-grade threat intelligence and our attacker research into Managed Defense is important. It's a large part of what distinguishes us.”

The Forrester report notes, “FireEye’s MDR offering is one aimed at more sophisticated practitioners, with mature investigative methodologies and strong threat hunting capabilities as one would expect given the company’s reputation for incident response. FireEye’s MDR service does not require client sophistication in order to receive benefits, but more-mature clients and more-skilled practitioners with IR and threat intelligence experience will definitely maximize the value inherent in it.”
