Prague, Czech Republic / Pisa, Italy, May 29, 2024ELLIO, a provider of real-time, highly accurate intelligence for filtering of unwanted network traffic and cybernoise, and ntop, a provider of open-source and commercial high-speed traffic monitoring applications, have announced a partnership to enhance visibility into malicious traffic originating from opportunistic scans and attacks within the network traffic monitoring tool ntopng.

ELLIO empowers ntopng’s users with advanced insights into mass exploitations, botnets, and other widespread activities on the Internet.

By integrating a highly accurate and real-time ELLIO: Feed, ntopng’s users gain deeper insights into their network traffic through real-time information on sources of mass exploitation, botnet activity and opportunistic attacks, even before traditional rule-based detections are available.

“Obtaining reliable and up-to-date information about mass exploits, botnets, and other widespread attacks is crucial for cybersecurity. These attacks easily disrupt normal network operations, affect service availability and performance, and overwhelm security teams,” said Vlad Iliushin, CEO at ELLIO.

Blacklists are effective for blocking attackers, but they require high-quality, frequently updated data that is immune to false positives.

In modern cybersecurity traffic analysis, the challenge is to anticipate problems before they happen. Blacklists are effective for blocking attackers, but they require high-quality, frequently updated data that is immune to false positives.

ELLIO: Feed is a threat list that is dynamically updated every minute and contains an average of up to 200,000 IP addresses currently associated with attackers, scans, and other malicious mass exploitation activities on the Internet. This database is constantly regenerated to ensure users have the most up-to-date information on emerging threats. ELLIO’s threat feed is supported by a powerful combination of an extensive internet sensor network operated by ELLIO, advanced ML algorithms, and real-time data processing. This mechanism enables highly reliable and fully automated threat detection delivery.
