Calyptix Dashboard Seeks to Help Small Businesses Mitigate Log4j Vulnerability Threat

MSSPs, enterprises and government agencies have been scrambling to mitigate the Log4j vulnerability since December 2021. But what about small businesses -- especially those that lack IT professionals and full-time security experts to find and close vulnerabilities?

Perhaps Calyptix Security can lend a hand. Indeed, the network security company has developed Community Shield -- a dashboard that allows SMBs to "protect each other from cyber threats and criminals attempting to identify and exploit the Log4j vulnerability," the company asserts.

Since its activation, the Calyptix Community Shield Log4j Dashboard has tracked over 4,000 unique IP addresses attacking small businesses through Log4j reconnaissance and exploitation attempts, triggering almost 2 millions alerts, the company indicated. Calyptix also continues to add unique IP addresses to its Log4j threat feeds as it identifies new threat actors.

Calyptix intends to provide additional public and private dashboards, the company pointed out. That way, small businesses can access insights into Log4j and other security threats and plan accordingly.
