Norse, a provider cyber threat intelligence solutions, today introduced a new intelligence service that leverages a combination of automated and human threat monitoring and analysis to help enterprise security teams detect compromised systems and malicious activity.
Dubbed the Norse Intelligence Service, the company is pitching the offering as an “early warning as-a-service” that monitors large enterprise networks and partner and supplier networks from the outside-in to identify compromised systems, spot malicious activity and track attacks in progress.
According to Norse, the new service leverages automated attack telemetry from the global Norse Intelligence Network, which is refined and enriched by Norse’s in-house team of cyberintelligence and counterintelligence fusion analysts, then sent to customers.
The Norse Intelligence Service includes detailed threat reports, delivered as needed, written by Norse professional analysts hand-picked for each customer.
No on-premise hardware or software is required, and the Norse Intelligence Service can be configured to focus on a single network, or take a broader view to find compromises on intertwined customer, supplier and partner networks, the company said.
The service comes with a web-based dashboard that shows attacks on or emanating from networks, and provides detailed forensic data to help analysts pursue deeper investigations.
Additionally, attacks and indicators of compromise (IOCs) can be filtered and sorted by geolocation of aggressors or targets, protocol, device type, traffic volume, attack velocity or risk score, Norse said.
“The need for expert threat monitoring and analysis has never been greater, but intelligence experts have never been more difficult to hire, with even the largest, most sophisticated organizations having trouble filling the talent gap,” said Tommy Stiansen, CTO and co-founder of Norse. “Meanwhile, the threat landscape has become wildly asymmetric, with individual companies overwhelmed by daily attacks from nation-states, terrorist organizations, multinational organized crime syndicates and thousands of hackers. The new Norse Intelligence Service is designed to fill that talent gap, and level the playing field.”
The Norse Intelligence Service will be available beginning April 20, 2015, with pricing based on network range size and the specific service package desired.
Last week the company introduced a new version of its threat intelligence appliance which can actively monitor inbound and outbound network traffic at up to 10 gigabits-per-second, and can work in conjunction with existing security solutions such as next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and SIEMs.
