CYREN, previously operating as Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH), today announced access to the CYREN Security Center, which gives the industry online insight to the latest global trends in Internet security.
As a leading global information security company relied upon by the world’s largest service providers and software vendors for Web, email, and mobile protection, CYREN presents its Security Center as part of its effort to further expand the visibility into its powerful GlobalView™ Security Cloud, the most robust malware transaction base in the industry.
Based on this extensive GlobalView cloud infrastructure, the online Security Center shows the full scope of global Web, email and mobile threats, featuring a homepage map that illustrates the reach of malware, phishing and spam – such as new malware sites in Chile, new Android malware detected in Cambodia, and new spam domains in Taiwan.
Phishing, Spam and Malware
The Security Center itself includes reviews of the previous week’s malware and spam levels, common Web categories of sites that have been hacked, distribution of global zombies, and a spam topics cloud showing the main active spam campaigns on a daily basis.
Highlights that could be seen within the first week after CYREN’s launch:
- Crossing the threshold of 700,000 malware URLs that CYREN is currently tracking in its database
- An average of nearly 180,000 new malware samples every day
- Spam levels are slowly creeping up again after spammers took a New Year’s break – from 34 billion spam emails per day on New Year’s Day to nearly 58 billion by the end of the week
Always Ahead of the Threat
“With our GlobalView™ Security Cloud you are always ahead of the threat,” said Lior Kohavi, chief technology officer at CYREN. “Our Security Center reflects the power and reach of our patented technology. We are pleased to provide a service that literally tracks CYREN’s analysis of billions of daily transactions. It is the first time we have done so in such a unified and public manner, which reflects our ongoing commitment to addressing current threats and the latest trends in Internet security worldwide.”
