MILPITAS, Calif., September 22, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), today announced that it plans to change its corporate name on Monday, October 4, 2021, and relaunch as Mandiant, Inc. at its annual Cyber Defense Summit (CDS) 2021. In connection therewith, the Nasdaq ticker symbol for the company's common stock will change to MNDT at the opening of trading on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
The plan to change the corporate name and stock ticker symbol follows the announcement on June 2, 2021 that the company entered into a definitive agreement to sell the FireEye Products business, including the FireEye name, to a consortium led by Symphony Technology Group (STG).
"Given the pending sale of the FireEye Products business to Symphony Technology Group, this year’s Cyber Defense Summit is an ideal time to rename and relaunch the company as Mandiant," said Kevin Mandia, CEO. "Mandiant is focused on helping every organization improve its security posture and better navigate today’s cyber threat landscape."
The Summit will showcase the Mandiant Advantage SaaS platform. This technology helps scale Mandiant’s frontline expertise and industry-leading threat intelligence to deliver dynamic cyber defense solutions to organizations of all sizes.
