    Obtain an IPv4 reputation score

    • Dark

    Article summary

    An IPv4 address' reputation score is a measure of the trustworthiness and reputation of an individual IPv4 address (or range of addresses).

    IP addresses with a high reputation are more likely to be associated with legitimate traffic and trustworthy sources, while IP addresses with a low reputation may be associated with malicious activity, such as phishing or malware distribution.

    Scores are based on the number of times an IPv4 address has been linked to threat infrastructure, through a variety of factors including DNS records, hosting services and malicious traffic. By focusing on IP addresses with a low reputation, security teams can reduce the risk of cyber attacks and protect their organization's network and data.

    Silent Push provides a fast, simple lookup that allows organizations to ascertain an IPv4's reputation score, which can then be used to inform other threat intelligence activities and cyber defense operations.
