It appears Department of Homeland Security has put its trust on FireEye (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company. VICE feature on Cybersecurity gave us a glimpse of DHS control room. Of course, I spotted the security product and an organic product promotion.

In April 2015, FireEye had announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had certified FireEye’s Multi-Vector Virtual Execution engine and Dynamic Threat Intelligence cloud platform under the SAFETY Act. “Certification is the highest level of liability protection available under the SAFETY Act. Customers of these certified FireEye technologies now have protection under the SAFETY Act from lawsuits or claims alleging failure of the technologies to prevent or mitigate an act of cyber terrorism. FireEye is the only Certification is the highest level of liability protection available under the SAFETY Act. Customers of these certified FireEye technologies now have protection under the SAFETY Act from lawsuits or claims alleging failure of the technologies to prevent or mitigate an act of cyber terrorism. FireEye is the only cybersecurity company with products, technologies or services certified under the SAFETY Act.”

The SAFETY Act — or the “Support Anti-Terrorism By Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002” — is a DHS liability management program aimed at encouraging the development and deployment of security products and services that will enhance the protection of the United States. DHS has designated over 700 products, technologies and services since the SAFETY Act was enacted in 2002, but FireEye’s MVX and DTI offerings were the first pure cybersecurity products, technologies or services to receive Certification. The liability protections provided by the SAFETY Act encourage more effective security deployments by automatically limiting the types of liability claims companies using certain products may face following a terrorist event.

In circumstances where the SAFETY Act is triggered under Federal law, claims that arise out of, or relate to the use of, the MVX engine or the DTI cloud would be limited or eliminated for FireEye customers. FireEye also benefits, as when the SAFETY Act is triggered, all covered third-party claims related to the MVX engine and DTI cloud platform product will presumptively be dismissed.
