When it comes to new security products, Vladislav Ryaboy follows the smart money in the cybersecurity community.
“I found that the signature-based anti-virus tools had become useless,” says Ryaboy, information security officer for the city of Miramar, Fla. After seeing a great deal of interest in the FireEye Malware Protection System, he deployed the product to detect and remediate advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day exploits.
Ryaboy says the combination of FireEye with the Mandiant remediation system FireEye acquired offers Miramar the perfect mix of security tools. “It’s a tool that can detect and stop in its tracks — at least for the moment — this new generation of malware. And by automating much of the remediation we used to do, it reduces a great deal of our manual security tasks.”
