Replace FireEye (Trellix) Appliances to Simplify Security

Break free from a legacy appliance-based approach with Zscaler.
It’s time to reevaluate your FireEye (Trellix) appliances:
Scalability issues

Data center-bound security appliances force you to backhaul all your traffic for inspection. And without smart capabilities, files often get needlessly rescanned, increasing latency and hindering user experiences.

Security blind spots

Without the ability to natively decrypt TLS/SSL traffic—where 85.9% of cyberthreats hide—you’re left reacting to threats, vulnerable to patient-zero infections, and reliant on yet more tools and appliances for visibility and protection.

Administrative hurdles

Filling in security gaps with more tools complicates the outdated FireEye/Trellix network architecture and creates policy management headaches. It also diverts your team’s focus to connectivity and patch firefighting instead of critical network operations.

The Solution

Zscaler vs. FireEye (Trellix)

Form factor

APPLIANCE-BASED: Inherently limited in capacity, it can’t scale unless you add more appliances or perform costly upgrades for more throughput.

CLOUD NATIVE: A cloud native proxy architecture with infinite scale eliminates the need for appliances.
TLS/SSL inspection

FALLS FLAT: FireEye appliances can’t inspect TLS/SSL traffic natively, and since more than 86% of today’s attacks are encrypted, you’re forced to buy appliances from other vendors.

NOTHING IS HIDDEN: As a cloud native proxy, the Zscaler security cloud ensures every packet from every user, on or off-network, gets fully inspected from start to finish, with unlimited capacity to inspect TLS/SSL.
Inline threat prevention

CAN'T KEEP UP: FireEye focuses on analyzing files after users receive them, requiring manual intervention to prevent patient-zero infections. Plus, on-premises appliances treat all files as new, bottlenecking network performance.

SUPERIOR PROTECTION: Unlimited inspection and integrated AI-powered services, including sandboxing, IPS, DNS security, threat intelligence, browser isolation, and deception, let you close security gaps and reduce risks left by other solutions.
Malware analytics

PASSTHROUGH ARCHITECTURE: Passthrough security solutions let traffic through without inspecting it for sophisticated attacks, determining malicious intent after it’s already too late.

AI/ML-BASED QUARANTINE: True inline detection with AI/ML-based analysis stops and quarantines zero day attacks, even those hidden in TLS/SSL traffic, preventing them from reaching their targets.

TOO MANY BLIND SPOTS: Adversaries deliver payloads through encrypted channels, and traditional appliances are blind to this traffic. Buying more appliances adds to administrative and network performance headaches.

COMPREHENSIVE PREVENTION: Full TLS/SSL inspection at scale with a cloud native zero trust architecture uncovers, isolates, and stops ransomware in its tracks regardless of user, location, or network.
Remote workforce

UNABLE TO SCALE: Dealing with hardware and software updates is time-consuming, and you still need additional devices for TLS/SSL decryption and enforcement.

INFINITE SCALE: With the network out of the equation, you can focus on creating context-based business policies that are enforced consistently without any hardware constraints.
