Launch DateNovember, 2013

Traditional blacklists are often prone to false positives and are usually an aggregation of other lists, leading to incomplete or poor coverage. As a result, organizations relying on these lists to protect their business have “blind spots” that can miss high risk traffic and lead to breaches and compromises.

Norse Darklist™ is the next generation of blacklists. Darklist is a live, continuously updated list of the highest risk IPs on the Internet, enabling organizations to protect their network from external bad actors. Darklist provides a Norse IPQ risk score for each IP, the risk category (such as “botnet” or “Tor proxy”) to provide context to the score, and latitude and longitude provided by Norse’s superior geolocation capabilities. Darklist is not just another blacklist — the information is live, accurate, and contextual.

Launch DateNovember 1, 2012

Norse IPViking™ is a patent-pending SaaS service that gathers “dark intelligence” from the parts of the Internet where bad actors operate and delivers an actionable risk score that enables organizations to drastically increase their overall security posture.

IPViking delivers machine-readable threat intelligence that can be integrated with an organization’s existing security products and network devices. Through a flexible RESTful API or direct solution level integration, IPViking improves existing security solutions’ ability to detect and block today’s cyber threats and advanced malware before they enter the network. And because Norse’s threat intelligence is live - intelligence is delivered to the customer within 5 seconds of its collection by Norse - and does not rely on signatures, the data is never out of date and constantly adapts to the Internet’s changing threat landscape.
