“The DarkWatch offering plugs a critical gap in enterprise security infrastructures. It detects new classes of attacks that current systems miss, such as cloud-vectored virtualization-evading malware, compromised Internet of Things (IoT) devices and anonymous proxies,” said Norse CEO
DarkWatch protects organizations from new, fast-growing classes of “grey threats,” such as those from cloud vectors and compromised embedded devices, and stops enterprise data from being stolen via Tor and other anonymous proxies. With DarkWatch, enterprises can automatically log activities, generate alerts or block IP addresses based on an up-to-the minute DarkWatch risk score.
“In the first month that we deployed the DarkWatch appliance, it examined 3.3 million web requests and gave us a new level of visibility into user traffic with an unprecedented view of network threats in real time,” said
DarkWatch can be deployed inline or out-of-band, and dramatically improves enterprise security return-on-investment by improving the catch rate and effectiveness of existing next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and security information and event management (SIEM) products. Finally, the integrated Norse live attack map provides customers with a detailed, real-time view of threats traversing their network and others around the world.
