Centripetal Networks Inc. Adds Emerging Threats IQRisk® Rep List and IQRisk Query for Their RuleGate® Appliance

Emerging Threats, a world-leading provider of commercial and open source threat intelligence, today announced that Centripetal Networks Inc. has licensed the IQRisk® Rep List and IQRisk Query products. Centripetal Networks, a leading provider of Real-Time Active Network Defense systems, will integrate Emerging Threats IQRisk Rep List into its RuleGate® appliances. This will enable enterprises to operationalize all of the IQRisk® intelligence in real time and at full network performance.

Centripetal’s RuleGate® is an Active Network Defense system that is used to protect networks from cyber threats such as malware, malicious users, cyber criminals, and hostile governments. RuleGate®s are inline bump-in-the-wire devices located at network security boundaries. RuleGate®s can block, alert, or allow every packet crossing the boundaries, in either direction, according to the dynamic threat intelligence and user defined security policies. The RuleGate’s breakthrough performance enables the use of millions of threat indicators.

Centripetal will leverage the comprehensive IQRisk Rep List to dynamically block malicious IP addresses and threat indicators using the RuleGate®. The IQRisk Rep List is based on Emerging Threats’ extensive data collection and analysis and contains over 40 categories of reputation. IQRisk Rep List is an actionable IP reputation and domain list that contains hundreds of thousands of currently malicious IP addresses and domains that allow users to take proactive measures to block list these threats and make informed decisions. All the threat intelligence data in Emerging Threats products and solutions are gathered through global resources that are exclusively collected and managed by Emerging Threats. This enables Emerging Threats to proactively deliver accurate and trusted data to OEMs and enterprise customers. With the RuleGate, enterprises no longer have to pick only a small subset of threat intelligence to act upon. All of the advanced IQRisk threat data can be used to strengthen an enterprise’s defense.

The RuleGate’s breakthrough logging performance enables, for the first time, a real-time view of network threats. This data is presented in Centripetal Networks QuickThreat™ visualization and analytics tool. QuickThreat™ enables threat intelligence-based alerts from IQRisk Rep List to be investigated in real time without the need for any post processing. QuickThreat™ can be installed on Windows and Mac PCs as well as Linux servers for enterprise applications.

In addition to IQRisk Rep List, Centripetal Networks has also licensed IQRisk Query, a robust and intuitive Web-based threat intelligence portal and API that provides easy access to the largest and most comprehensive threat intelligence database with up to 4 years of historical and contextual threat data. Centripetal will use IQRisk Query to enable security operations teams to triage threats in real time with risk-based alerting.

“Enterprise cyber threats are dynamic and expanding,” said Steven Rogers, CEO of Centripetal Networks. “With world-class threat intelligence from Emerging Threats and Centripetal's RuleGate appliance, enterprises have a powerful way to operationalize threat intelligence, without impacting network performance. The addition of IQRisk data provides a significant boost to an enterprise’s real-time active network defense.”

“Today’s business and networking environments demand security solutions that are able to analyze high volumes of traffic at gigabit speeds,” said Ken Gramley, CEO, Emerging Threats. “We are pleased that Centripetal Networks has chosen our IQRisk products to meet the needs of their customers by providing a high-performance system with solid, time-tested IP and domain reputation data to ensure networks are safe from these threats.”

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

What are the key challenges addressed by Data as a Service? How does cloud computing underlie and connect the notions of Digital and DevOps What is the impact of the API economy? What is the business imperative for Cognitive Computing? Get all these questions and hundreds more like them answered at the 18th Cloud Expo...

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
Designing IoT applications is complex, but deploying them in a scalable fashion is even more complex. A scalable, API first IaaS cloud is a good start, but in order to understand the various components specific to deploying IoT applications, one needs to understand the architecture of these applications and figure out how to scale these components independently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nara Rajagopalan is CEO of Accelerite, will discuss the fundamental architecture of IoT applications, ...
