Detection rules that identify malware infections
Nokia Threat Intelligence focuses on the behavior of malware network communications. It develops detection rules that identify malware infections based on command-and-control communication and other network behavior. This approach enables fast detection of malware in Communication Service Providers' (CSP) networks.
The detection rules developed by the Threat Intelligence Center form the foundation of Nokia NetGuard Endpoint Security (NES) solution.
