    In early May, FireEye announced that company president Kevin Mandia would replace industry veteran Dave DeWalt as CEO. My colleague Doug Cahill had a chance to catch up with Kevin yesterday to get his perspectives on FireEye, enterprise security, and the threat landscape amongst others. Here are a few highlights:

    On FireEye’s direction: In spite of lots of distraction, Mandia is focused on driving “engineering innovation” at FireEye. Normally, this vision would be equated with security products alone but Kevin’s believes that products can anchor services as well. This involves installing FireEye’s endpoint and network security products on a customer network, collecting telemetry, comparing it to current threat intelligence, detecting malicious activities, and then working with customers on remediation. To accomplish this, FireEye products must be “best-in-class” for threat detection on a stand-alone basis. The FireEye staff is then available to add brain power and muscle to help product customers as needed.
