About Our Data

Malware Patrol’s threat data is aggregated from diverse sources, including web crawlers, botnet monitors, spam traps, honeypots, research teams, partners and historical data about malicious campaigns. All the data is carefully inspected. As a result, our feeds contain thoroughly vetted indicators sourced from the real world.

Because security budgets are usually limited, it is important to rely on a data source that provides coverage for the current malicious campaigns and threats that directly affect your company and your customers, maintaining a high level of security but using the minimum amount of resources.


How We Can Help

As a SMB, MSP, MSSP, ISP or similar company, there are many ways to use our data to protect your assets, employees and networks, as well as your customers:

  • Reinforce your network defenses by adding continuously updated data to your SIEM, firewalls, IPS/IDS, proxy, and DNS servers
  • Prevent the exfiltration of sensitive data and intellectual property from infected machines
  • Detect malicious content hosted on your networks and servers
  • Improve incident response and forensic capabilities by providing your teams with meaningful information about threats
  • Grow your business by providing industry-leading threat data as a premium service to your customers.
