The FireEye European R&D team will work closely with local universities to empirically test FireEye endpoint threat defense technology and research threat intelligence in tandem with existing FireEye R&D centers in Singapore and Bangalore.
Based in the town of Dresden, the FireEye European R&D team will conduct advanced mathematical research through techniques known as “formal methods” to validate the security of the FireEye endpoint technology.
