SecureAuth Partners With Norse for Live Threat Intelligence

Access to Proactive Intelligence Crucial to Future User Authentication and Access Control

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2014) - SecureAuth Corporation today announced it has partnered with Norse, the global leader in live threat intelligence. Norse delivers continuously-updated and unique intelligence that helps organizations detect and block attacks -- especially from the darknets -- that other systems miss. Norse technology has especially innovative applications for SecureAuth's award-winning access control solutions.

Commenting on the partnership, Keith Graham, Chief Technology Officer at SecureAuth Corporation stated, "The Norse DarkMatter™ threat intelligence feed gives us a real-time pulse on the risks targeting our customers' networks. We envision that same depth of threat intelligence can be applied to the user authentication process to ensure only authorized users gain access. As we expand our risk analysis and intelligence capabilities, we are confident that in partnering with Norse, future SecureAuth solutions will detect and prevent cyber threats and identify attackers at the authentication level, before harm can be done."

Like SecureAuth, Norse won the Red Herring Top 100 Award - 2014 North America, and Norse was named a "Cool Vendor" in the Cool Vendors in Security 2014 report by Gartner, Inc. Norse's live dark intelligence and adaptive security solutions enable the rapid detection of advanced cyber attacks and arm organizations to deploy the appropriate risk-based response to ensure faster resolution. Norse analyzes high-risk network traffic from the global internet's darknets and the deep web to proactively identify the sources, characteristic and risk levels of cyber attacks.

"Evolving identity and access management techniques are crucial for protecting organizations from increasingly sophisticated threats," commented Kurt Stammberger, CISSP and SVP Market Development at Norse Corporation. "SecureAuth's innovative approach that combines more than 20 authentication methods with single sign-on access, combined with Norse DarkViking instantaneous 'background checks' on incoming IP addresses requesting logins, will prevent thousands of fraudulent logins a year at the typical enterprise."

Norse is exhibiting at BlackHat in Las Vegas through August 7 at booth 465 where a SecureAuth representative will be available to answer questions.
