Centripetal’s high-performance RuleGate® appliance operationalizes real-time malware intelligence data from The Media Trust to protect enterprises from everyday employee Internet use.
HERNDON, VA – December 02, 2015
Centripetal Networks Inc., the leading provider of Real-Time Active Network Defense solutions, announces their strategic partnership today with The Media Trust, a leading provider of real-time threat monitoring and detection services. This partnership will deliver a proactive network enforcement solution to organizations by enabling Centripetal’s high-performance RuleGate® platform to leverage The Media Trust’s Digital Threat Intelligence (DTI), real-time threat data consisting of actual malware attacking websites and Internet users via compromised digital advertisement and third-party code used to render websites.
DTI is unlike any other threat data because its intelligence is generated entirely from The Media Trust’s own proprietary ad tag and website monitoring service, which scans and analyzes the website source code, ad tags, third-party domains and any external calls executing on the world’s largest, most heavily trafficked digital properties for anomalous, suspicious or malicious activity. With this panoramic view into the online and mobile ecosystem, DTI provides the real-time, tactical and original source malware data that security operations center (SOC) and information security teams need to protect their networks, digital properties and the everyday Internet activity of employees.
Centripetal offers the Network Protection System, a fully integrated pro-active network defense platform. The core component of this platform is the RuleGate appliance, which blocks and alerts on events in real-time while providing attack visualizations and analytics. RuleGate enforces cyber security policies with millions of rules—at full line rate—and without any degradation in network performance.
Centripetal Networks’ RuleGate ingests The Media Trust’s Digital Threat Intelligence and responds to those threats immediately, preventing the delivery of malicious exploits on the network before they become overt. This joint solution seamlessly removes malicious content often inserted in some of the world’s most heavily trafficked websites and mobile apps via compromised content, third-party code or advertisements.
“Together, Centripetal Network’s proactive network defense platform and The Media Trust’s real-time threat data provide CISOs and their teams with an unprecedented level of protection against web-based malware,” says Chris Olson, The Media Trust’s CEO and co-founder. “This partnership not only brings together two best-of-breed offerings, but also marks a radical departure in how to successfully combat malicious threats to the enterprise due to everyday employee Internet use.”
“We are excited to announce the integration between our solution and the extensive malicious content feeds provided by The Media Trust,” said Steven A. Rogers, Founder and CEO of Centripetal Networks. “Our customers have already seen great success in this integration and look forward to providing organizations across all industries with the new level of security that this combined solution offers.”
