FOSTER CITY, CA â€“ July 16, 2015 â€“Â Norse, the leader in live attack intelligence, today announced the next-generation version of its popular Norse Live Attack Mapâ„¢. Offering a real-time window onto a broad range of security exploits as they are being carried out by intruders and criminal hackers around the globe, the Norse Live Attack Map dramatically demonstrates the Norse Intelligence Network in action gathering critical threat intelligence on these attacks as they are being carried out, intelligence that Norse uses to help enterprises defend their systems against compromise.
â€œThe Norse Live Attack Map is a real-time graphical display of our global network of sensors, honeypots, crawlers and agents working to provide unique visibility into the Internet and the darknets where bad actors operate,â€ said Tommy Stiansen, CTO and co-founder of Norse. â€œThe map is a powerful security tool that shows how Norseâ€™s live intelligence identifies the compromised hosts, malicious botnets, anonymous proxies and sources of attack that other solutions miss.â€
Already popular among security professionals as a live threat visualization, the Norse Live Attack Map has been rebuilt from the ground up to be more visually appealing and entertaining, and to provide deeper insight into the source and nature of cyber attacks. It features a completely redesigned interface that lets users zoom in on geographic areas of interest and choose from among several different physics engines to vary the action. The new Attack Map is also faster and less resource-intensive, and works equally well across desktop and mobile platforms.
Norse will also be integrating premium versions of the new Norse Live Attack Map into its offerings that are tailored to each customerâ€™s assets and networks of interest to give security operations centers real-time visual feedback on attacks in-process with actionable context so they can move faster and more effectively to stop thefts and intrusions. These integrated versions of the map can provide illuminating displays of malicious activity entering or emanating from enterprise networks as well as activity from partner networks as they are hitting Norse sensors.
The public version of the new Norse Live Attack Map is now available for viewing at map.norsecorp.com. Norse will demonstrate the map, along with its complete family of live attack intelligence solutions and services at Booth 359 in the Mandalay Bay expo hall, at the Black Hat security conference, August 5 and 6 in Las Vegas.
Norse is the global leader in live attack intelligence, helping companies block the threats that other systems miss. Serving the worldâ€™s largest financial, government and technology organizations, Norse intelligence dramatically improves the performance, catch-rate and return-on-investment of an enterpriseâ€™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.
