Overview of Fire Eye
FireEye is an expert in the field of cyberthreats. However, if you’re looking for antivirus software just for personal use, or a small business, its focus on large-scale enterprises makes the software less significant.
How to Set It Up and Uninstall
FireEye doesn't offer typical antivirus software. Instead, a team has to come to your place of business and install a high-end protection engine. This can then be upgraded with various modules. Malware protection and antivirus is the bare minimum that’s included.
If you run a huge business or work for the government, then FireEye might be right for you. It takes cyber threats seriously, but too seriously for simple individual needs. Unless you’ve got money to burn and the need for indicators of compromise, you should probably stick with a more modest antivirus company like Norton.
