Four questions to Sam Glines, CEO

What is your vision for your company?

Norse’s vision is to be the leading threat intelligence company in the industry, delivering the highest quality intelligence and the most effective intelligence-based security solutions.

Who is your target customer?

Norse serves the world’s largest financial, government and technology organizations.

What benefits does your company offer its customers?

  • Instant assessment of risk level and threat context of all inbound and outbound network connections, raising the overall security posture of the enterprise while reducing security operations costs.
  • Prevention of malware, botnets, and potentially dangerous connections from anonymous proxies and bogus IPs.
  • Reduction in time to discover and respond, and provide live data so they can take action now to protect their business.

How do you think your company is different from the rest?

Norse is different from its competitors because it collects its own data rather than aggregating open source feeds or using data gleaned from its customers’ networks. Norse also delivers intelligence-based solutions in addition to its feeds, enabling customers to gain an instant advantage.
