Through our partnership with Centripetal Networks, our joint customers can act faster to identify and block malicious IP addresses. Using that contextual threat data is more meaningful to defending your network, and we provide the most robust platform for bringing deep context on threat indicators from multiple platforms. The integration lays the groundwork for a powerful partnership.”
“Our product makes it easier for customers to utilize threat intelligence data in real time to visualize, analyze, and block malicious activity,” said Centripetal Networks Founder and CEO Steven A. Rogers. “We’re excited to add ThreatConnect to our arsenal, and believe that our collaboration makes both products much stronger.”
