Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., the largest pure-play security vendor globally, has launched a service ThreatCloud dynamically reinforces the World Cyber Threat Map – a map of the world of cyber threats.
It displays in real time, where at the moment the world is experiencing cyber attacks. Information for maps provides Check Point ThreatCloud dynamically reinforces network together to combat cyber crime, which collects data about attacks using the global sensor networks security threats.
The database contains ThreatCloud dynamically reinforces over 250 million addresses analyzed for the presence of bots, more than 11 million malware signatures and more than 5.5 million addresses infected websites. Every day the system detects more than one million types of malware. “It can be hard for organisations to grasp the sheer speed and global scale at which cyber-attacks happen,” says Doros Hadjizenonos, sales manager for Check Point South Africa. “We wanted to develop a tool to help businesses understand how rapidly the threat landscape is moving so that they can take steps to strengthen their security essentials and implementations and better defend themselves against attacks”.
Map World Cyber Threat Map provides daily statistics threats:
“The ThreatCloud World Cyber Threat Map shows where attacks are starting, the types of attack and their targets in more detail than any other resource, because it uses real-time intelligence from Check Point’s installed base of security gateways. Customers can also use ThreatCloud and Check Point’s Next Generation Threat Prevention solutions to get the latest intelligence in real-time, enhancing the quality and speed of their security responses to new threats.”
Check Point’s ThreatCloud collects data from numerous global sensors and from the company’s own research team and distributes this information to customers’ gateways, giving real-time threat information and attack trends to enforce protection against bots, APTs and other sophisticated forms of malware – making it the first and unique collaborative network to fight cybercrime. This is not the first world map that shows cyber threats. Last year, IT security vendor Kaspersky Lab realised “Cybermap" – a new online service to monitor violations of cyber security in real time.
