Norse, a provider cyber threat intelligence solutions, today 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.

According to the company, the new high-bandwidth Norse Appliance 10g offers intelligent threat blocking and can work in conjunction with existing security solutions such as next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and SIEMs.

The appliance can be deployed in-line “in front” to offload perimeter security devices or “in back” to catch malicious traffic that other systems have missed, the company said. It can also be deployed in a monitoring mode to audit and record interactions with bad actors and malicious web pages.

Norse Cyber Attack Intelligence Appliance 10G“Norse Appliance 10g transforms the way enterprises use threat intelligence, and protects organizations from the fastest-growing class of threats: those from the darknets, including attacks from anonymous proxies like Tor, cloud vectors and compromised embedded devices,” said Tommy Stiansen, CTO and co-founder of Norse. “Instead of just providing after-the-fact context for SIEM events, Norse real-time intelligence can be applied directly to make faster, better decisions about what to block. Simultaneously, the Norse Appliance provides pre-enriched, pre-distilled intelligence data for existing enterprise firewalls and SIEMs. That leads to better threat management overall.”

“Live threat intelligence is the key to surviving the new digital siege. But in order to be useful, threat intelligence needs to be as complete and relevant as possible,” Wendy Nather, research director of the Information Security practice at 451 Research, said in a prepared statement. “New offerings like the Norse Appliance 10g are becoming must-have tools for defending modern organizations on the Internet.”

Available immediately, the Norse Appliance 10g is offered as a rack-mounted 1U hardware appliance or virtual machine. Pricing varies depending on deployment and implementation and installation and setup for most customers can be done within a day.
