Centripetal Networks, a cyber threat intelligence provider, has extended its technology to the cloud with the launch of CleanINTERNET Cloud.

The new platform aims to protect businesses from all known and zero-day attacks in near real-time, the company said in a prepared statement. It’s available on Amazon Web Services now and will be on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform later this year.

Threat Intelligence from 250 Providers

The company said that its CleanINTERNET platform leverages dynamic threat intelligence from more than 250 threat intelligence providers in real-time. In so doing, it proactively shields networks from 99% of known threats.

Here's how Centripetal said that it is advancing the security industry by operationalizing the world’s largest collection of threat intelligence:

  • CleanINTERNET applies over 100 billion indicators of compromise from real-time intelligence feeds, updated every 15 minutes, to protect its customers' networks.
  • Centripetal provides what it calls the fastest packet filtering technology on the planet, applying millions of threat intelligence-based rules to incoming and outgoing datastreams with zero latency.
  • Centripetal’s team of trained intelligence operations analysts acts as an extension of its customer’s internal cybersecurity team, who monitor and analyze emerging threats. This mitigates the skills gap and reduces the burden on overworked IT resources.

Explaining how the company is determined to stay one step ahead of cyber adversaries, Centripetal Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Rogers said:

“Today's global cyberthreat landscape is constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated, requiring a more proactive and adaptable approach to cybersecurity. Collectively, we have the power and the responsibility to build a secure digital world, and it begins with neutralizing the ever-present and constantly evolving cyberthreats.”

Centripetal Opens Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence

Meanwhile, Centripetal has opened a Galway, Ireland-based European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence to address cybersecurity opportunities in the U.K., Ireland and across Europe. The project, which is supported by the government of Ireland through IDA (Industrial Development Authority) Ireland, will establish 50 new jobs in Galway.

The facility will serve as the central hub where new and existing customers can work with Centripetal to gain insight on the current European and global threat landscape and how they might be affected.

Customers will have access to Centripetal’s global cyber intelligence operations analyst team, who continuously analyze emerging threats, highlighting critical risks and applying global threat intelligence.

Rogers cheered his company's collaboration with Ireland:

“Centripetal is the only cybersecurity vendor that delivers intelligence powered protection that neutralizes every known cyberattack at the network level while simultaneously driving down the cost of security operations. Our innovative technology is an industry first and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the IDA to bring our solution to Ireland and the U.K. to not only provide unparalleled protection for our customers but also valuable employment opportunities for the country.”
