Thank you, Chelsea. Good afternoon, and thanks to everyone on the call for joining us today to discuss FireEye's financial results for the fourth quarter of 2018 and the full year 2018. This call is being broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed on the Investor Relations section of FireEye's website at

With me on the call today are Kevin Mandia, FireEye's Chief Executive Officer; and Frank Verdecanna, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer of FireEye. After the market closed today, FireEye issued a press release announcing the results for the fourth quarter of 2018 and the full year 2018.

Before we begin, let me remind you that FireEye's management will make forward-looking statements during the course of this call, including statements relating to FireEye's guidance and expectations for certain financial results and metrics; FireEye's priorities, initiatives, plans, and investments; drivers and expectations for growth; the expansion of FireEye's platform and the benefits, capabilities, and availability of new and enhanced offerings; competitive position, market opportunities and go-to-market strategies.

These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by these statements. These forward-looking statements apply as of today, and you should not rely on them as representing our views in the future. We undertake no obligation to update these statements after the call.

For a detailed description of the risks and uncertainties, please refer to our SEC filings, as well as our earnings release posted an hour ago. Copies of these documents may be obtained from the SEC or by visiting the Investor Relations section of the website.

Additionally, certain non-GAAP financial measures will be discussed on this call. We've provided reconciliations on these non-GAAP financial measures for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the Investor Relations section of the website as well as the earnings release. We'd also like to remind you that the results included in this call and the earnings release are using the ASC 606 revenue standard.

With that, I'll turn the call over to Kevin.
