Trusted Metrics Inc. Signs Agreement to Integrate Emerging Threats Products for Comprehensive Malware Coverage and IP and Domain Reputation

July 8, 2014

The Managed Visibility Platform (MVP) is Enhanced by Combining the ETPro® Ruleset and IQRisk® Rep List for Global Threat Detection, Analysis and Prevention

RALEIGH, N.C. & LAFAYETTE, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Trusted Metrics Inc., an Information Security services firm headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, and Emerging Threats, a world-leading provider of commercial and open source threat intelligence, today announced a licensing agreement for the ETPro® Ruleset and IQRisk® Rep List to deliver comprehensive malware protection and actionable threat intelligence to Trusted Metrics’ Managed Visibility Platform.

The Trusted Metrics’ Managed Visibility Platform delivers a powerful cloud-based event correlation platform, top-notch network enterprise visibility, and situational awareness to any organization at a fraction of the cost of deploying currently available intrusion detection systems, centralized logging, and SIEM technologies. The Emerging Threat ETPro Ruleset delivers the highest level of major malware coverage and contains an average of 19,000 malware rules and is updated daily, ensuring the most comprehensive and up-to-date malware protection. IQRisk Rep List is based on over a decade of threat intelligence data collection containing an extensive library of hundreds of millions of IP addresses and domains with years of historical data and over 40 categories of reputation. IQRisk Rep List is non-aggregated, and delivers accurate and trusted data that is gathered through global resources and is exclusively collected and maintained by Emerging Threats.

The frequency of malware and other malicious threats have reached epidemic proportions and are becoming more complex, making them harder to detect. These threats cost organizations billions of dollars a year in lost revenue and damaged reputation to the brand. The daily barrage of these threats also results in a significant cost of doing business in order to safeguard against network intrusion and data exfiltration, not to mention the constant burden placed IT security professionals and incident responders. Trusted Metrics’ Managed Visibility Platform (MVP) provides organizations with a next-generation, cloud-based SIEM platform that provides increased performance at a reduced cost when compared with traditional on-premise products. The MVP platform allows organizations of any size to incorporate centralized log correlation, Intrusion Detection, asset management, vulnerability management, IP and domain reputation and Network Performance Management into a single console that is managed, monitored and supported 24x7 by Trusted Metrics. With the addition of the ETPro Ruleset and IQRisk Rep List to the Managed Visibility Platform, customers can be confident that their networks will be protected against malware and malicious IPs and domains.

“We are excited to offer a comprehensive IDS ruleset and an IP Reputation and Domain list that is evaluated at event time (not query time), which further protects our client’s networks and allows them to make more informed decisions faster and more reliably,” said Michael Menefee, Founder and CEO of Trusted Metrics. “We can now evaluate every enterprise event based on its reputation score, take immediate action and produce more reliable threat reports. Emerging Threats provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date dataset available for this purpose.”

“By integrating Emerging Threats’ ETPro Ruleset and IQRisk Rep List, Trusted Metrics will be able to provide comprehensive malware protection and IP and domain reputation to its customers with confidence,” said Ken Gramley, CEO of Emerging Threats. “We look forward to working with Trusted Metrics to deliver highly reliable and time-tested security products for their Managed Visibility Platform.”
