Glossary

Accumulated deficit of -$170 million.

FEYE appears to be in a sweet spot as long as it invests heavily in sales, marketing and product development, which is what that are doing.

The high cost of customer acquisition is a concern, the market appears very large, and FEYE appears to be targeting early adopters.

Conclusion
Buy on the IPO. FEYE is a high risk investment that might pay off. In this stock market top line revenue growth with a branded product/service (especially a subscription service) is highly valued.

Business
FEYE invented a purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform that provides real-time protection to enterprises and governments worldwide against the next generation of cyber attacks.

FEYE's technology approach represents a paradigm shift in how IT security has been conducted since the earliest days of the information technology industry.

The core of FEYE's purpose-built, virtual machine-based security platform is virtual execution, or MVX, engine, which identifies and protects against known and unknown threats that existing signature-based technologies are unable to detect.

The new generation of cyber attacks on organizations, including large and small enterprises and governments worldwide, is characterized by an unprecedented escalation in the complexity and scale of advanced malware created by criminal organizations and nation-states.

Marketing & Sales
FEYE's sells the majority of its products, subscriptions and services to end-customers through distributors, resellers, and strategic partners, with a lesser percentage of sales directly to end-customers.

Competition
Current and potential future competitors fall into five general categories:

large networking vendors such as Cisco and Juniper that may emulate or integrate features similar to FEYE's into their own products;

large companies such as Intel, IBM and HP that have acquired large IT security specialist vendors in recent years and have the technical and financial resources to bring competitive solutions to the market;

independent security vendors such as Sourcefire (which recently announced its pending acquisition by Cisco), Palo Alto Networks and Trend Micro that offer products that claim to perform similar functions to FEYE's platform;

small and large companies that offer point solutions that compete with some of the features present in FEYE's platform; and

providers of traditional IT security solutions, such as Symantec, that we may compete with in the future.
