Lastline is your best choice for advanced malware protection.

Evaluating technologies for advanced malware protection can be overwhelming. At Lastline, we believe the key is to focus on the results. Will the product detect malware infiltrating your organization? Will your team have the tools they need to react and stop the attacks? Is the solution cost-effective enough to deploy enterprise- wide? Here’s how Lastline compares to FireEye in each of these areas.

Lastline Detects More Attacks
Detection Technology Lastline uses next-generation full-system emulation technology to detect modern malware. FireEye uses first-generation virtual sandboxing technology, which is easily bypassed by virtualization-aware malware.
Malware Detection Rate (2015 NSS Labs Breach Detection Systems Test) Lastline received a 98.6% overall malware detection rate on the most recent NSS Labs BDS test. FireEye received a 59.4% overall malware detection rate.
Scalable Detection Lastline’s architecture is multi-tier. Lightweight distributed sensors and a central scale-out analysis engine ensure enough performance to detect attacks. FireEye has a single-tier architecture which combines a sensor and analysis engine into a single appliance. Localized load spikes can overwhelm FireEye’s detection system.
Physical and Virtual Sensors Lastline can deploy on VMware virtual networks, as well as physical networks from 10M to 10G. FireEye deploys only on physical networks and cannot protect VM-to- VM traffic.
Lastline Makes Your Response More Effective
Alert Reduction Lastline reduces multiple IoCs into unified incidents. Every IoC must be manually examined by administrators who may overlook critical information in the alert noise.
Risk-based Prioritization Lastline prioritizes incident risk by the number and severity of IoCs. Serious incidents may be missed if individual IoCs are too low a priority. Target Corporation had 40 million credit card numbers stolen, in spite of the fact that FireEye had generated alerts.
Lastline Has Lower, More Predictable Costs
Low-cost Sensor Platform Lastline is software-based – Deploy on industry-standard servers or VMs. FireEye only offers an appliance model which is expensive and inflexible.
Unified Sensor Lastline has a single software sensor for network traffic, email, file system and mobile traffic. FireEye customers must purchase separate appliances for each protocol inspected – network traffic, email, file system and mobile traffic.
Analysis Hardware Cost Lastline’s centralized, scale-out malware analysis engine is cost-effective and able to handle large enterprise-wide loads. FireEye performs analysis in every sensor appliance, which must be overprovisioned to handle localized load spikes.
Licensing Licensing is per user – regardless of network topology, bandwidth or number of sensors. Licensing is per external connection and by bandwidth. This model is extremely costly, complex and impractical for most organizations.
Performance Upgrades Upgrade industry-standard servers or add servers for performance upgrades. Lastline never charges for additional licensing. FireEye customers must repurchase appliances for performance upgrades.
