FireEye Acquires Npulse for $70 Million

What makes nPulse an attractive addition to FireEye is technology that enables customers to analyze data rapidly, Dave Merkel, FireEye CTO, told eWEEK. Merkel noted that FireEye's platform started with the Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) technology to help find and identify attacks. FireEye gained incident response technology with the acquisition of Mandiant earlier this year.

"What nPulse brings is a network forensics component, recording what is going on in a network and making it possible to ask lighting-fast questions about something that may have just transpired," Merkel said.
