IronPort Threat Operations Center
The 24x7x365 IronPort Threat Operation Center provides human oversight to ensure speed and accuracy. Experienced analysts use sophisticated tools to verify anomalies and approve automatically generated Outbreak Rules.
What is a Virus Outbreak?
Of the email-based viruses that occur on a daily basis, only few qualify for Virus Outbreak status. For a virus to be classified as an outbreak, it must:
- be a new virus (or a new variant of an existing known virus),
- have moderate to significant damage potential,
- have a widespread distribution, and
- be an infection that IronPort has seen several instances of, from varied sources.
If any of these occurrences satisfy the above criteria, our Threat Operation Center (TOC) investigates the incident and issues outbreak rules to protect our customers.
