Business critical functions rely on quick, safe and reliable connections to the Internet. Unfortunately accessing the web isn’t as always as simple as it should be. There is malicious software constantly trying to find ways onto your network.
FireEye’s Web Malware Protection System (MPS) stops Web-based attacks that traditional and next-generation firewalls, IPS, AV, and Web gateways miss. It protects against zero-day Web exploits and multi-protocol callbacks to keep sensitive data and systems safe. However their best deployment scenario is to be inline; and having devices inline can increase latency and slow down production.

FireEye - Scalable Web Malware Protection Solution to Keep Your Network Safe and Up

  1. 1. Technology Alliance Partner I Solution Brief Scalable Web Malware Protection Solution to Keep Your Network Safe and Up Net Optics and FireEye The Challenge Business critical functions rely on quick, safe and reliable connections to the Internet. Unfortunately accessing the web isn’t as always as simple as it should be. There is malicious software constantly trying to find ways onto your network. FireEye’s Web Malware Protection System (MPS) stops Web-based attacks that traditional and next-generation firewalls, IPS, AV, and Web gateways miss. It protects against zero-day Web exploits and multi-protocol callbacks to keep sensitive data and systems safe. However their best deployment scenario is to be inline; and having devices inline can increase latency and slow down production. The Solution FireEye and Net Optics have partnered to provide a scalable and fault-tolerant solution, which consists of the FireEye Web Malware Protection System, working with Net Optics iBypass™ and xBalancer™. This solution lets customers maintain their security and performance while also providing a platform for increasing demand. The Net Optics iBypass Switch with advanced Heartbeat and Link Fault Detect features allow monitoring of xBalancer’s state information. A configurable heartbeat packet sent from the iBypass Switch to the xBalancer helps identify link anomalies or power failures. The Switch will immediately detect the change and will re-route traffic using Fast Path™ switching technology. Once xBalancer is brought back on-line, traffic automatically resumes. The Net Optics xBalancer is built specifically to prevent tool overburdening by distributing the traffic to multiple monitoring tools. Thus xBalancer allows customers to scale their deployments as the need grows while maintaining security. Tool health is monitored using Heartbeat packets and can proactively redirect traffic to available or spare tools in case of failure. The FireEye Web MPS appliances are a turnkey system that can be deployed inline at Internet egress points to block inbound Web exploits and outbound multi-protocol callbacks. They employ the most sophisticated Virtual Execution (VX) engine in the world to accurately confirm zero-day attacks, create real-time protections, and capture dynamic callback destinations. Dynamic analysis of zero-day attacks within a full-featured virtual analysis environment yields real-time malware security content to protect the local network and share with subscribers of the FireEye Malware Protection Cloud (MPC). In addition, the Web MPS can signal into incident response mechanisms, such as SIEM, and also offers TCP resets for out-of-band blocking of TCP, UDP, or HTTP connections. This joint solution from Sourcefire and Net Optics provides intelligent security automation, advanced load-balancing and the assurance that their security solution will scale as needs continue to grow, increasing ROI and network reliability. Solution Highlights • Easily scale deployments as needs grow while lowering TCO • Gain next-generation load-balancing capability without compromising reliability • Protects against zero-day, advanced targeted attacks – using the VX engine, it detects and stops advanced targeted attacks using malicious images, PDFs, Flash, or ZIP/RAR/TNEF archives • Cuts off outbound malware transmissions across multiple protocols – whether deployed inline or out-of-band, it thwarts data exfiltration, botnet activities, and advanced persistent threats communicating across HTTP, FTP, IRC, and many other protocols • Integrates with Email MPS to stop blended attacks – works with FireEye Email MPS protection to shut down communications with malicious URLs used in targeted attacks • Dynamically generates malware intelligence – Captures details such as callback coordinates and communication characteristics to protect locally and share globally through the cloud

The FireEye appliances connect to the xBalancer, which provides in line network conditions, the iBypass Switch will pass a Heartbeat through the xBalancer to verify its operation and route network traffic through the xBalancer. The xBalancer in turn uses a unique heartbeat for each FireEye monitoring link. In case of a heartbeat failure the xBalancer rebalances the traffic to the remaining tools or to an additional spare to maintain continuous monitoring.
