    FireEye Central Management (CM Series) is the FireEye threat intelligence hub. It services the FireEye ecosystem, ensuring that FireEye products share the latest intelligence and correlate across attack vectors to detect and prevent cyber attacks. CM improves operational efficiency for multiple FireEye devices.

Hands-on activities include administering other FireEye appliances (NX, EX, FX, AX) using CM, correlating web and email attacks, and submitting malware detected via NX, EX, or FX directly to AX via the CM Web UI.
