Does anyone use Damballa or FireEye for malware protection?  If so, where did you place them on you network and what size Internet pipes do you have?


We have a 10 Gig core and Crossbeam firewall (Chassis based 10-gig backplane) with a 2-Gb (and soon to be 3-Gb) Internet pipe.  I am not sure these two vendors can handle this amount of data.


Let me know if you know of any other vendors as well!
