Security Vendor FireEye (FEYE) Ready to Light Up its IPO
The highly anticipated FireEye (FEYE) IPO is expected to price this evening. The
price range has been increased to $15-$17 from $12-$14 previously. The company
will sell 14 million shares.

FireEye offers a virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time
protection to enterprises and governments.

The company’s MVX virtual execution engine identifies and protects against known
and unknown threats that competitors (using existing signature-based
technologies) can’t detect.

FireEye is one of the leading vendors in the hot advanced persistent threat (APT)
segment of networking security.
