Kaspersky Lab has an interactive cyberthreat map that visualizes cyber security incidents occurring worldwide in real time. The types of threats displayed include malicious objects detected during on-access and on-demand scans, email and web antivirus detections, as well as objects identified by vulnerability and intrusion detection sub-systems.
Kaspersky Lab’s globally distributed cloud-based infrastructure – Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) – helps Kaspersky Lab products receive information about new suspicious files and other threats almost immediately after they appear. Internal KSN mechanisms summarize the data sent automatically from thousands of protected devices whose users consented to share information about any suspicious programs they encounter. After comparing the behavior of the file on different computers, checking it against a database of hundreds of thousands of legitimate applications and using heuristic algorithms, the system issues a preliminary verdict on whether or not the object is malicious. If it is malicious, access to the object is promptly blocked for all other Kaspersky Lab users, thus preventing an epidemic. KSN possesses the very latest information about security incidents which is added to a map of the world in real time so that anyone can view the wide variety of threats, and the speed at which they spread.
Norse Live Attack Map is also similar to the Interactive Cyberthreat Map from Kaspersky Labs.
