FireEye Cybersecurity Hardware Device; Step Action Document

The FireEye NX device allows advanced malware to proceed – but only onto virtual machines running inside the appliance. This allows the NX to operate as a threat prevention platform that stops Web-based attacks. The NX is used to protect networks against zero-day Web exploits and multi-protocol callbacks to keep sensitive data and systems safe. FireEye NX is used as a turnkey system that is deployed in-line at internet egress points to block inbound Web exploits and outbound multi-protocol callbacks. This step action document allows the student to observe how the FireEye NX appliance detects malware on its way to the target machine.
