Sentinel IPS Announces The Global Release Of An Industry-First Collective Intelligence Scoring System

CINS Scores provide view into the malicious activity of hostile IP addresses

Sentinel Intrusion Prevention Systems announces the global release of a new intrusion prevention technology called CINS&trade Scoring. The announcement and live demonstrations of the technology may be seen this week at DELL World 2012, in Austin TX.

"Collective Intelligence Network Security&trade" or CINS, is the data platform upon which the new scoring system is derived. CINS Scores provide an unprecedented view into the malicious activity of hostile IP addresses. The score is a proprietary algorithm that makes use of "CINS factors" that include "zero day" intelligence via rogue packet activity, a multitude of IP reputation feeds, and current and past attack activity from SENTINEL IPS by ECONET sensors around the world. CINS scores for IP's are analogous to FICO scores for borrowers. This new scoring system allows for the relative comparison of the trustworthiness of source IP addresses. CINS Scores are accompanied by detailed reports, akin to credit reports, that show current information about any IP address in the world. CINS data is collected, interpreted, and made anonymous, from a variety of sources, including Sentinel IPS appliances deployed worldwide. These devices along with the CINS data and scores are collected in real time and continuously updated.

CINS data and the ability to derive a reliable score is a potent tool in defending networks from intrusions. Sentinel IPS appliances utilize a variety of detection methodologies including CINS Scores to prevent "bad actors" from causing harm to Sentinel IPS protected networks.
