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.”
