Emerging Threats Pro Named Network World Cyber Security Company to Watch for 2012

LAFAYETTE, IN--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - With the push to an increasingly digital corporate world, cyber security is essential to protecting sensitive data. Emerging Threats Pro ( is focused on developing the latest rules for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), the backbone of security networks.

Network World recently named Emerging Threats Pro as one of the top security companies to watch in 2012, writing, "Intrusion detection is a must-have in any layered network defense, and Emerging Threats Pro is weaving its way into the fabric of open source intrusion detection software..."

"We expect to see exponential growth in 2012 and 2013," said Emerging Threats Pro CEO Ken Gramley. "We're excited to be on the leading edge of cyber security and look forward to making even bigger advances in the coming months. We also offer an IP reputation feed, with a comprehensive database that will allow networks to identify and analyze millions of IP addresses."

IDS systems are built around a set of "rules" that help security networks identify hacking attempts, malware and viruses. Emerging Threats Pro writes those rules, scanning and testing an average of 100,000 pieces of malware daily to ensure comprehensive malware coverage for their clients. This extensive malware coverage gives IDS systems up to a 5x boost in their ability to identify and block malware.

"The Emerging Threats Pro Ruleset is so successful because of its flexibility and thoroughness. It's compatible with a wide variety of IDS platforms, including Suricata and all versions of Snort," Gramley said. The ET Open Source ruleset is the oldest open IDS/IPS ruleset, and is downloaded more than 200,000 times per day. The ET Pro Ruleset offers much more complete coverage, quality/performance tuning, daily updates and full-time research staff for an extremely affordable price.
