FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Norse, the leading provider of live attack intelligence, will showcase its latest live attack cybersecurity solutions at Booth 359 at the Black Hat Conference, August 5-6 in the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
Norse provides enterprise security professionals with immediate and actionable information to detect and prevent cyberattacks. Norse delivers live attack intelligence, enabling enterprises and government agencies to protect themselves against connections to and from malicious IP addresses and URLs.
Norse identifies these attempted attacks through its global network of more than 8 million sensors, honeypots, crawlers and agents which operate around and within strategic datacenters, and which are designed to look like actual websites, e-mail login portals, or some other kind of Internet-based system for a bank, university, power plant or electrical switching station. These sensors, combined with a seven-petabyte attack history database, allow Norse to determine where the bad actors are located and which hosts, botnets and anonymous proxies they are using to launch attacks.
Norse also plans to announce a major upgrade to its Norse Live Attack Map™, a mesmerizing real-time display of attempted cyberattacks emanating from around the world and the company will unveil the latest version at the Black Hat Conference.
In addition to the newest version of its real-time map, Norse also will be showcasing its family of live attack intelligence products and services, including the Norse Appliance™ 10g, which actively monitors inbound and outbound network traffic at 10 gbps line speeds to “supercharge” SIEMs and block advanced attacks. The company also will be demonstrating its Norse Intelligence Service™, a unique fusion of automated and human intelligence analysis that offers turnkey “early-warning-as-a-service” to help customers quickly identify compromised systems, spot malicious activity and track attacks while they’re still underway.
Norse threat intelligence experts will be on hand at the Black Hat conference to discuss these offerings and to conduct private meetings.
“Real-time, actionable threat intelligence is crucial to thwarting advanced attacks, and Norse is delivering the most advanced tools for defending large organizations on the Internet,” said Tommy Stiansen, CTO and co-founder of Norse. “Our new offerings consistently deliver unique intelligence available nowhere else — actionable attack intelligence at transaction speeds to protect enterprises from today’s threats.”
Norse is the global leader in live attack intelligence, helping companies block the threats that other systems miss. Serving the world’s largest financial, government and technology organizations, Norse intelligence dramatically improves the performance, catch-rate and return-on-investment of an enterprise’s entire security infrastructure. The Norse Intelligence Network, a globally-distributed distant early warning grid of millions of sensors, honeypots, crawlers, and agents, delivers unmatched visibility into difficult-to-penetrate geographies and darknets where bad actors operate. Norse processes hundreds of terabytes daily against a seven-petabyte attack history database, and weighs over 1,500 variables to compute real-time risk scores for millions of IP addresses and URLs every day.
