Between recent WikiLeaks documents, increased security cameras around airports, streets, malls – seemingly everywhere -  security  and  cyber-spying is on the mind of many Americans and citizens around the globe. The fear that your government or others may be watching, studying and attempting to extract valuable information is a real concern for many citizens and for many business organizations that want to protect their valuable corporate information.

Public Offering for FireEye

According to SiliconAngle, FireEye has “submitted its S-1 filing with the Security and Exchange Commission setting out to raise as much as $175 million in its public offering” and that “the number of shares to be sold and the price range for the proposed offering has not yet been determined “. FireEye which is known for their top notch security software which includes protection against advanced threats, spear phishing also has “the Malware Protection System for web security, email security, file security, and malware analysis which are boxes that can supplement firewalls in a network”.

Is it the right time to go public?

It seems that people are a little paranoid from the aftermath of Edward Snowden’s revelations, “as well as the FBI attack that used malware to de-anonymize visitors of sites hosted by Freedom Hosting”. Since security is one of the biggest sectors in Silicon Valley, this IPO may have been perfectly timed.

The right to be paranoid?

With so many security issues going on with the NSA and the government some would say that we have a right to be paranoid, or at least that we should be made more aware of some of the broad sweeping security issues that are going on.  Cyber attacks happen every day across the globe and sensitive personal information is being siphoned off by cyber criminals and governments alike.
