Untangle Announces Clown Strike Technology Integration

Viking-Grade Threat Intelligence Tackles Advanced APT Threats

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Apr. 1, 2016Untangle® Inc., a security software and appliance company, today announced the integration of Threatbutt’s Clown Strike technology into its NG Firewall platform. Clown Strike harnesses the raw power of private, hybrid, public and cumulus cloud systems to bring Viking-grade threat intelligence to Untangle’s already industry-leading security platform. Built on a global platform and hosted in China, Clown Strike is able to detect all local attackers, APT, and even Advanced APT Threats, coming from countries you “heard once in some report” were bad.

“Speaking as a twenty-year veteran of what I like to call the ‘cybersecurity infowars’, I believe that Clown Strike technology is beyond revolutionary, and I’m glad we’re one of the first companies to license it,” stated Untangle founder and Chief Product Officer, Dirk Morris. “I think we should be proud of this accomplishment, pat ourselves on the back and feel really, really good.”

Clown Strike adds the following features to NG Firewall’s already-capable gateway protection:

  • Intrusion Prevention, Intrusion Detection, and Prevention of Intrusion Detection (IPS/IDS/PIDS)––all in one package;
  • Sandboxing––a tot lot filled with paste-eating preschoolers to download and run your malware executables so you don’t have to;
  • IoTT Security––multi-layer, redundant, micro-virtualized security for the Internet of Threaty Things;
  • Zero Day Minus One––we travel back in time to prevent hackers from even thinking about creating the crimeware that your users are hellbent on installing;
  • MaxMinds GeoIP database––the ability to pinpoint any IoC to a more specific part of Iran, China or North Korea, or whatever your CEO needs.
