5526534_s featureCyren, formerly Commtouch, announced open access to its security center. The center gives the industry online insight to global trends in internet security.

Cyren presents its Security Center as part of its effort to further expand the visibility into its GlobalView cloud security service, a malware transaction base.

The online Security Center shows the scope of global web, email and mobile threats, featuring a homepage map that illustrates the reach of malware, phishing and spam – such as new malware sites in Chile, new Android malware detected in Cambodia, and new spam domains in Taiwan.

The Security Center itself includes reviews of the previous week’s malware and spam levels, common Web categories of sites that have been hacked, distribution of global zombies, and a spam topics cloud showing the main active spam campaigns on a daily basis.

Highlights that could be seen within the first week after Cyren’s launch:

  • Crossing the threshold of 700,000 malware URLs that CYREN is currently tracking in its database
  • An average of nearly 180,000 new malware samples every day
  • Spam levels are slowly creeping up again after spammers took a New Year’s break – from 34 billion spam emails per day on New Year’s Day to nearly 58 billion by the end of the week
