The Cyberthreat Real-Time Map project has been presented with ‘Cutting Edge Project of the Week’ courtesy Favourite Website Awards (FWA) and Adobe. The Cutting Edge award distinguishes projects braced with a commitment for moving the web forward by leveraging the most recent features and technologies in modern browsers besides setting new standards and expectations around whatever is possible on-board the web.
The dynamic 3D world map from its part visualizes the absolute volume of viral detections in real time – Herein, data comes from Kaspersky Security Network (KSN), Kaspersky Lab’s globally distributed cloud-based infrastructure. The types of displayed threats takes account of malicious objects detected in the course of on-access and on-demand scans, followed by email and web antivirus detections, in addition to objects identified by vulnerability and intrusion detection sub-systems.
Users can now zoom in and out of either a globe or flat map view to be able to pinpoint the key threats and categorize the most infected areas. A breakdown of each country’s level of infection can be caused by way of a click, together with the ability to directly select a country and share statistics across popular social media platforms.
Eugene Chereshnev, Chief Mobile Business Officer at Kaspersky Lab alleged that: “There are literally millions of attempts to steal consumers’ private data every day – in 2013 we blocked more than 5 billion cyber-attacks on user computers and mobile devices. We are currently processing about 315,000 unique malware samples every single day. Not many people are aware of that. All that we as a brand care about is your safety and that of your family and friends when online. The CyberMap is a great way to see what is really going on in a very clear and informative way – which fits perfectly to our goal. The Cutting Edge award is a real coup for the project. Clearly, we have created a service that people were looking for and we promise to keep evolving it.”
