Cyber intelligence firm Cyveillance has announced a new offering for its customers called Cyveillance IP Block List, which reduces the exposure to current threats. With the growth of the current threat landscape, the new offering will allow clients a more proactive cybersecurity posture.
Unlike more traditional approaches to cybersecurity, Cyveillance “look[s] for threats in the wild before they hit your perimeter,” according to Panos Anastassiadis, COO of Cyveillance. Most current anti-virus programs detect less than half of viruses, largely because criminals seek to use zero-day exploits, a recent Cyveillance study found.
Cyveillance’s IP Block List provides timely warnings to clients regarding malicious websites and activities.
“Mass infection of both servers and desktop PCs by malware and ‘bot’ software has given online criminals access to an endless, cost-free infrastructure on which to run, control and host their illegal activities,” Anastassiadis said. “We want to decrease the likelihood of successful online crime by making our customers aware of online threats before they become a problem for individual users and networks. This reduces the possibility of compromised IT infrastructure, and helps them survive even under attack.”
