Provides cybersecurity and anti-malware software for businesses.
FireEye, founded by Ashar Aziz, is one of the many publicly traded cybersecurity companies out to prove that its software is the best at keeping company data safe. FireEye offers a variety of products that businesses can use to help keep hackers at bay, including analytical tools that identify which parts of a company's laptop, mobile device, and email networks are most at risk. While FireEye does have some notable customers, such as the U.S. Department of Defense and credit card reporting agency Equifax, the cybersecurity market is crowded--and is getting even more so, as companies such as Intel and IBM acquire other IT companies. To stay ahead of the pack, FireEye is putting millions of dollars into funding its own cybersecurity research teams in several countries, including Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Singapore, and the U.S. Note: employee count as of Dec. 31, 2015
