High-performance RuleGate® appliance operationalizes industry-leading threat intelligence from the ThreatIQ service to heighten cyber defenses.
RESTON, VA – November 04, 2014
Centripetal Networks Inc., the leading provider of Real-Time Active Network Defense solutions, has just announced today that they are in partnership with ThreatTrack Security, a leader in cyber threat prevention solutions that substantially change how organizations respond to cyber attacks. The signed OEM agreement enables Centripetal’s high-performance RuleGate® device to leverage an advanced threat intelligence stream from ThreatTrack Security’s ThreatIQ™ cloud-based threat intelligence service.
ThreatIQ, provided by ThreatTrack Security Inc., is a comprehensive malware intelligence service that gives clients access to an up-to-the-minute stream of malicious URLs and IP addresses, phishing links, infected files and additional intelligence that is processed by the ThreatTrack Security Labs. ThreatIQ provides real-time insight into emerging threats, enhancing enterprises’ security defenses in an increasingly complex threat landscape. ThreatTrack Security is one of the largest data-sharing companies in the world and will serve as a critical component to the Centripetal Networks solution.
Centripetal’s RuleGate® appliance is a Real-Time Active Network Defense system that is used to protect networks from cyber threats such as malware, malicious users, spam, phishing, scanning, and multiple adversaries. The RuleGate® offers cyber analysts full visibility into which hosts are communicating from inside the network to specific hosts outside the network, in real-time. Two or more RuleGate®s in a high availability configuration can guarantee continuous operation during maintenance, upgrades, or unexpected failures, without impacting the network.
With ThreatIQ, Centripetal Networks can ensure that the deployed RuleGate® appliances are further securing customers’ networks with the latest malware threat streams. The ThreatIQ service provides raw data that is categorized by identified threats, behavioral traits, and malware relationships. It can also generate reports that consist of information on malicious files, sites, email and other Internet traffic known to spread malicious codes.
ThreatTrack Security, like Centripetal, recognizes that time is of the essence in cyber defense; every second counts. Centripetal Networks’ integration of ThreatIQ on the RuleGate® will allow for the application of million-scale unique indicators on every packet entering and exiting the network. The RuleGate® operationalizes this malware intelligence enabling organizations to block, alert, or allow cyber threats in real-time at scale without any disruption to the network performance.
With millions of malicious users hiding amongst billions of legitimate users, it is no wonder cyber security is at the forefront of organization’s priorities. A security breach in the network could have detrimental effects to both businesses’ reputations as well as customer’s personal data, no matter how brief the breach may be. By integrating ThreatIQ with the RuleGate® device, organizations can operationalize threat intelligence and activate large-scale policies in seconds, all while allowing business operations to continue without loss in performance.
“The cyber threat landscape is ever-changing, ever-expanding”, said Steven A. Rogers, Founder and CEO of Centripetal Networks. “Persistent threats require persistent protection and an integration with ThreatTrack Security’s best in class malware intelligence and Centripetal’s RuleGate appliance will offer organizations a highly-advanced solution in cyber defense. The addition of ThreatIQ will greatly increase data security in real-time, without disrupting user experience.”
“Centripetal Networks recognizes that threat intelligence plays an increasingly vital role in organizations’ ability to detect and respond to cyberattacks,” said Julian Waits, Sr., president and CEO of ThreatTrack Security. “By integrating ThreatIQ into their RuleGate solution, they are delivering a much stronger and more agile cyber defense to their customers.”
