14 October 2020

Prevailion’s threat intelligence team has substantially increased our monitoring of malicious cyber activity over the last month.

The APEX™ Platform now tracks over 205 malware families, marking a 45% increase since the start of September. We have also increased our monitoring of malicious beacons by 20%, with more than 32 billion C2 communications collected.

This expanded coverage of malware communications provides the industry’s most advanced, comprehensive view of nation-state and criminal actor campaigns that are actively targeting corporations, governments, non-government organizations and their suppliers worldwide. Many of the active cyber compromises seen by APEX™ remain undetected by the victim organizations and their partners.

Prevailion collects telemetry directly from the adversary. Our APEX™ Platform is currently tracking:

  • 33 billion malicious beacons
  • 488,000 infected IP addresses
  • 28,000 compromised organizations
  • 208 malware families

Later this year, we will be releasing a new update to APEX™, which will make it easier for users to search the platform for specific malware and threat actor activity. This update is due to roll out by the end of Q4.
