Parsons and FireEye take up Critical Infrastructure Defense Responsibilities
PASADENA, CA: Critical infrastructures are assets that are essential for the proper functioning of a country’s society and economy. Multiple syndicates, including hackers and other non-state groups target them for causing disruptions and data theft. In light of this, Parsons and FireEye have decided to work in unison to provide solutions for this ever evolving issue.
“FireEye and Parsons are coming together to provide the best security solutions available today, from the physical world to the cyber domain, and help protect critical infrastructure providers from this diverse set of adversaries,” says David DeWalt, Chairman of the Board and CEO, FireEye.
Parsons is a multi-faceted company that has been delivering construction, defense security and cyber security services for almost three decades now. Under this new contract, they would be utilizing FireEye’s expertise in cyber security, to thwart cyber criminals from accessing information which would put the entire country in jeopardy. Incapacitation or destruction of any of the critical infrastructures would lead to disruptions in the nation’s economy. The FireEye Threat Prevention Platform provides real-time threat protection without the use of signatures to protect an organization. The core of the platform is a virtual execution engine, complemented by dynamic threat intelligence, to identify and block cyber attacks.
“Together with FireEye, we are committed to developing best-of-breed solutions to address the evolving cyber threat faced by energy producers, transportation infrastructure entities, telecommunications companies, and government agencies,” says Chuck Harrington, Chairman and CEO, Parsons.
