    We completely agree with you.

Also, as mentioned by you, we are the only technology company which provides RSUs ( stock grants) to every single employee – thereby enabling wealth creation for all. We have showcased our technical prowess at various occasions – be it the tremendous leadership shown during the recent Solarwind Orion global malware attack or when our Network Security product won the NAVWAR challenge hosted by US Navy.Once again , Thank you for your valuable feedback ! We are thrilled to know that you appreciate the initiatives taken by the company for the well-being of its employees. We are certainly very excited about the future of FireEye and our products and services continue to make us stand out as a leader in cyber security .
