Security software company FireEye (FEYE) just went public in 2013, raising $300 million to expand the business. And while this company is indeed untested as a publicly traded stock, there is a lot of experience at the helm via its founder Ashar Aziz.
Aziz founded FireEye in 2004 after selling his previous virtualization and security business, Terraspring, to Sun Microsystems in 2002. He has a lot of experience with security companies in a digital age and is focusing on protection of newer technologies like smartphones and social networks beyond just conventional desktop anti-virus sales.
The company still doesn’t have much of a track record and has lagged the markets slightly since its September IPO. But if you want to get in on the ground floor of a cybersecurity player, FireEye stock is perhaps your best shot.
