We do this by assimilating massive amounts of threats, evaluating them, and providing "rules" for IDS systems to block the threats. We also provide IP Reputation data to help companies understand if the computers accessing their network are safe. ETP currently sells to end-users and small OEMs, We have landed Cisco and have other large OEMs in the pipeline.
