CYREN to Contribute Cyberthreat Data Into IID's ActiveTrust Platform

Intelligence Around Phishing Threats and Malicious IP Addresses Being Used for Botnets Added Into One of the World's Largest Commercial Cyberthreat Data Exchanges

TACOMA, WA and MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2015) - IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) has made its Phishing Intelligence Feed and Malicious IP Intelligence Feed available in IID's big data solution for Internet security -- ActiveTrust. By accessing CYREN data in ActiveTrust, IID clients get insight into the latest phishing threats as well as IP addresses being used for botnets -- computers that, although their owners are unaware of it, have been set up to forward spam or viruses to other computers. Organizations can automatically feed that intelligence into their cybersecurity appliances; ensuring cyberthreats are mitigated in a timely, efficient and effective manner.

"By gaining global intelligence at super-fast speeds, CYREN's technology enables trusted partners such as IID to further strengthen the protection they offer their extensive customer base," said Einat Glik, vice president and general manager, Email Security at CYREN. "We are pleased to team with IID to proactively protect against ever-evolving malicious threats."

CYREN's Zombie IP Feed contains a list of IP addresses that are sending spam and/or participating in other cybercrimes. The list contains anywhere from 5 to 12 million IP addresses. CYREN's daily analysis of billions of Internet transactions provides thousands of new phishing URLs to its Phishing Intelligence Feed daily, the instant they find them. With today's announcement, the unfettered CYREN intelligence is available in the ActiveTrust dashboard, meaning it can be input into any organization's cybersecurity infrastructure with no formatting via ActiveTrust as easily as IID's own curated data.

"Approximately 500 million computers globally are infected each year and the phishing epidemic shows no signs of slowing down," said IID President and CTO Rod Rasmussen. "Because it's unrealistic to think we'll completely take down these intricate cybercrime networks responsible for botnets and phishing, it's essential organizations get the latest data on where these threats live and CYREN provides this."

In addition to premium data like from CYREN, IID distills, analyzes and inputs the cyberthreat intelligence from thousands of sources like governance and guidance organizations, law enforcement, Internet service providers, and other Internet security experts and groups worldwide into ActiveTrust. By providing this extra layer of context, ActiveTrust makes sense of what is relevant for organizations. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies rely on ActiveTrust data to detect and mitigate threats, making it one of the world's largest commercial cyberthreat data exchanges.
