The GCSB’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has developed a service called Malware Free Networks (MFN), which is designed to strengthen New Zealand’s cyber defence capabilities. MFN is a threat detection and disruption service that provides near real-time threat intelligence reflecting current malicious activity targeting New Zealand organisations. MFN will bring the NCSC’s cyber security capabilities to a much larger number of nationally significant New Zealand organisations.
The MFN threat intelligence service can be integrated with other systems and platforms to increase the range of malicious activity MFN customers are defended against. MFN complements commercial threat intelligence by detecting and disrupting against indicators identified through NCSC’s advanced cyber defence capabilities and sourced from the NCSC’s international cyber security partnerships.
