Mandiant Confirms Name Change from FireEye, Inc. to Mandiant, Inc.
October 6, 2021
Dark Reading reported on October 4 that Mandiant, Inc., a leader in dynamic cyber defense and response, has announced that its corporate name change from FireEye, Inc. is now effective. The company has rebranded as Mandiant, Inc. and its Nasdaq common stock ticker symbol changed to MNDT from FEYE on October 5, 2021.
Changing the corporate name and stock ticker symbol reflects the company’s strategy to focus on Mandiant’s security controls-agnostic solutions delivered through the Mandiant Advantage cloud-based platform. On June 2, 2021, the company announced it had entered into an agreement to sell the FireEye Products business, including the FireEye name, to a consortium led by Symphony Technology Group (STG).
“Renaming our company as Mandiant, Inc. aligns with our mission of making every organization confident in their cyber defenses,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO at Mandiant.
Mandiant believes that effective security results from the right combination of expertise, intelligence, and adaptive technology. For 17 years, Mandiant has delivered first class frontline experience and industry-leading threat intelligence. Mandiant now responds to more than 1,000 security breaches annually. The resulting insights are what power Mandiant’s dynamic cyber defense solutions, which are all delivered through the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform. Dynamic cyber defense brings excellent cybersecurity to organizations of all sizes and allows them to adapt their defensive posture as the threat landscape changes – as it does all the time.
“Over the years, organizations have sought to modernize and secure their critical business processes by adopting security and IT technologies from many different vendors. Mandiant is uniquely positioned to help customers take decisive action and minimize risk, irrespective of their size or the security controls they use. We expect our pending sale of the FireEye Products business to enable greater agility and spur increased company growth,” said John Watters, President and Chief Operating Officer at Mandiant.
“Mandiant holds an unrivaled view of the attack lifecycle. By combining machine, adversary breach intelligence, and operational cyber threat intelligence, Mandiant empowers security teams to understand and proactively protect against the relevant threats facing their organizations,” added Watters.
We are huge fans of Mandiant, so for us this is very good news indeed.
