FireEye AX File Analysis of Malware Step Action Document

As part of the U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant, CCBC created a student network operations center (SNOC) that provided the students with hands on and demonstrations of various state of the art cybersecurity hardware. One of the devices was the FireEye AX appliance. The FireEye AX device allows advanced malware to proceed – either allowing the malware to call home or run inside the virtual machines running inside the appliance. This allows the AX to operate as a threat detection platform that can monitor attacks in real time. The AX is used to protect networks against zero-day exploits and multi-protocol callbacks to keep sensitive data and systems safe. FireEye AX is used to observe and detect malicious files and sites during callbacks.
