We gather big data
Our global data partners share vast amounts of data, providing visibility into potentially malicious activity across the internet. These trusted partnerships are varied, from government organizations, leading internet providers to specialized researchers, honeypots and beyond.
Identify malicious behaviour
We then assess the data for malicious IPs, domains and files. This is done by our hand-picked team of researchers, who apply machine learning, heuristics and manual investigations. The data is assess against pre-defined policies created with the wider internet community.
And create reliable threat intel
Where abuse is detected, the data is added to the relevant dataset(s) as a listing. Datasets vary - some are binary and others include rich metadata. With simple integration into your current infrastructure, you gain protection and insight without additional hardware or license costs.
We remain an independent business, allowing us to focus on doing good for the internet community without external pressures.
