Forming Talos

Talos was formed by combining SourceFire's Vulnerability Research Team, the Cisco Threat Research and Communications group, and the Cisco Security Applications group. The combined expertise is backed by a sophisticated infrastructure and Cisco's unrivaled telemetry of data, leading to a comprehensive understanding of threats, their root causes, and scope of outbreaks.

Talos utilizes this threat intelligence to keep abreast of existing and emerging threats and make the internet safer for everyone. A variety of free software, services, resources, and data are available to the public, including the official rule sets and communities of Snort, ClamAV, the Talos Reputation Center (formerly Senderbase), and SpamCop. Additionally, Talos promotes an informed security community, posting information on new threats and research on the Talos Blog and social media.
