The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has certified the first cybersecurity products ever under the SAFETY Act (the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002). The Act provides a level of liability protection to companies that use certain products to enhance their security.
FireEye, Inc. provides the Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (“MVX”) Engine and Cloud Services, and its technology is a software platform and related services designed to protect customers from malware. According to FireEye, customers that employ FireEye’s MVX are now protected from lawsuits or claims alleging that the products failed to prevent an act of cyberterrorism. This Designation and Certification will expire on April 30, 2020.
