INTELLIGENT THREAT DATA

Malware | Ransomware | DDoS | Crypto | Phish

Malware Patrol

We are a team of threat data experts based in the USA and Brazil. Our history is one of community spirit and dedication to internet security that began in 2005 when a group started sharing malicious links using a simple mailing list.

Over a decade of collecting, analyzing, and sharing data has allowed us to develop an extensive network of sensors, sharing agreements, and community contributors, the result of which is our vast database of unique and historically rich – “intelligent” – threat data.

Malware Patrol’s indicators of compromise (IOCs) are now used by thousands to protect networks and assets in more than 175 countries.

To respect the time and resource limitations faced by information security professionals, automated systems verify each IOC in our lists every day to ensure that our feeds contain only active threats. To maximize our data’s coverage, we are continually updating the technology we use to scour the Internet for the latest malicious campaigns.

We offer commercial and non-commercial versions of our data.

 

What kind of threat data user are you?

Security Enterprise

You resell or integrate IOCs into your threat intelligence/security products. Or, you need custom data or samples for research.

Security Service Provider

MSSP, ISP, or the like, you use threat data to provide network security management services to your customers.

Non-Commercial

You use threat data strictly for the protection of your own computer or your company’s internal network and end users.

Commercial Threat Data

Enterprise Threat Data Feeds

We offer a wide range of IOC feeds for security enterprises and researchers available for individual purchase: malware samples, malicious IPs, C2s, cryptomining sites, newly registered domains and more. For those with specific data or ingestion requirements, we can fully customize feed contents and formats at no additional cost. Request a FREE evaluation.
 

Business Protect Data Package

A pre-set package of feeds designed with the needs of small to medium sized security businesses – MSSPs and ISPs – in mind. The data offered helps protect your customers and their networks against malware infections, the transmission of compromised data, and communications with botnets and command and control (C2s) servers. Request a FREE evaluation.
 

Details

Both of these commercial threat data options include an unlimited commercial license for the use and resale of the data, regardless of the number of customers and/or end users.
