We believe you have to be at least as aggressive and entrepreneurial as your digital adversaries in order to defeat them. Chasing the known threats is easy. It’s the unknown that’s hard. That means we can’t just react – we have to pre-empt. We have to smash the attack chain before it gets built.


We believe in taking the hits so our customers don’t have to. That’s why we wander the worst neighborhoods of the Internet, looking for trouble, just asking to be attacked. That’s why we’ve built the biggest dedicated threat detection network in the world, and populated it with millions of honeypots, agents, sensors and crawlers.


Norse is dedicated to delivering live, accurate and unique attack intelligence that helps our customers block attacks, uncover hidden breaches and track threats emerging around the globe. Norse offerings leverage a continuously updated torrent of telemetry from the world’s largest network of dedicated threat intelligence sensors. Norse is focused on dramatically improving the performance, catch-rate and return-on-investment for enterprise security infrastructures.
