Cybersecurity solutions vendor Trend Micro Incorporated has introduced the Trend Micro TippingPoint Security Management System (SMS) Threat Insights, powered by XGen security.
SMS Threat Insights is designed to help businesses prioritize response measures by quickly understanding the threats impacting the network and identifying which will need immediate attention. This enables network security professionals to:
- Identify breached hosts, which are infected or under attack based on blocked or allowed attempts.
- Integrate with third-party vulnerability scan solutions to identify vulnerabilities and disclose the corresponding Digital Vaccine (DV) filters required to remediate and optimize security posture.
- Distinguish potential threats classified as malicious and whether suspicious objects have been blocked or permitted.
- Determine if any zero-day DV filters developed using exclusive access to vulnerability data from the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), have triggered, indicating pre-emptive protection for a vulnerability, or a potential zero-day threat for an undisclosed vulnerability awaiting a patch.
Additionally, businesses are able to automatically block known and undisclosed vulnerabilities from the network using the TippingPoint Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS). Through added forensics capabilities, the TippingPoint NGIPS can automatically forward unknown or suspicious indicators to the SMS Threat Insights.
“SMS Threat Insights will give our customers an aggregated view of their network security and allow them to confidentially prioritize response measures,” says Don Closser, vice president and general manager, Trend Micro TippingPoint. “By further integrating our industry-leading NGIPS and Advanced Threat Protection solutions, we help customers optimize their network protection from known, unknown and undisclosed threats through integrated threat protection measures.”
