Whether your goal is to protect your enterprise network from infections and data loss, shield your customers from harm, or incorporate awareness of malicious URLs into software or hardware, the LookingGlass Malicious URL Data Feed is a cost-effective, easy-to-implement solution that brings real-time awareness of dangerous programs spreading across the web. Rather than week- or month-old malware samples, the Malicious URL Data Feed is dynamically updated, showing the online locations where malicious programs originate: the websites infecting users’ machines right now. LookingGlass analysts identify the malicious pages being used to lure or engage users, the hosting points for the malicious code itself, and test malware against a large bank of anti-virus and honey pots to provide an accurate list of threats to systems and users.
Every hour a malicious website is accessible to your employees or customers is another hour that malware may infect your network, compromise your data, and impact your users. Real-time discovery, detection, and reporting are critical to maximizing the effectiveness of the data. The Malicious URL Data Feed is updated every five minutes, and LookingGlass uses many detection sources and methods, including spammed links, suspicious domain name registrations, phishing pages, “suspect email” streams from major webmail providers, and patented “invisible site seal” technology to ensure the fastest possible discovery of malicious new pages anywhere online.
LookingGlass link-checking and malware analysis engines have been continuously updated and re-trained for more than five years by using past findings to improve the system. Every database record includes documentation of malware behavior and activity, with key elements provided data feed metadata. This provides clear evidence of bad behavior for every URL you receive. With LookingGlass, you can trust you’re utilizing an intelligence feed that won’t take up precious resources with manual review or time-consuming verification.
