FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE) said it has expanded the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention platform with the introduction of the FireEye Mobile Security app.
With the expansion, organizations are able to protect devices on the Android platform with FireEye Multi-vector Virtual Execution engine technology and FireEye Dynamic Threat Intelligence.

Focused on the Android ecosystem, FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention provides administrators and employees visibility into the mobile threats currently on their networks and devices through a single dashboard and lightweight Android app. Using a hybrid-cloud model, the Android app performs signature-less analysis of user apps in the cloud while leaving sensitive employee information on-premise. With the new app and management tools, the FireEye Mobile Threat Prevention platform, is now designed to identify unknown mobile threats in real time using behavioral analysis, block malicious apps from running, and alert users and administrators of suspicious apps.
FireEye has invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time threat protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks. The core of the FireEye platform is a virtual execution engine, complemented by dynamic threat intelligence, to identify and block cyber attacks in real time.
