Mandiant had the opportunity to become truly vendor-agnostic once the company sold its FireEye products business, since renamed Trellix, to Symphony Technology Group in October, according to executive vice president and chief technology officer Marshall Heilman. Heilman says Mandiant has therefore pursued deep integrations with all the leading vendors in the endpoint security space.

  • Why partnerships are central to Mandiant's strategy;
  • The latest integration with CrowdStrike and SentinelOne;
  • What getting bought by Google means for the company.

Heilman has more than 20 years of experience in cybersecurity, holding executive leadership and technical roles. He has worked at Mandiant for the last 15 years. Heilman previously had responsibility for all managed detection and response services and for ensuring front-line threat knowledge was integrated throughout FireEye/Mandiant Products and Services.

Prior to joining Mandiant in 2006, Heilman was a U.S. Marine, specializing in information security.
