Managed services and security provider Advantage is now a partner of Malware Free Networks (MFN), the intelligence community’s cyber threat feed.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), part of the intelligence community led by the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), developed MFN as a service designed to strengthen New Zealand’s cyber defense capabilities. 

The threat detection and disruption service provides near real-time threat intelligence reflecting current malicious activity targeting New Zealand organisations. It launched after a trial period in December 2021 with nine foundation partners. 

MFN works with Advantage and other local partners to deliver technology platforms that can take cyber threat information and very quickly turn it into actionable threat intelligence for partners to deploy.

Advantage offers the MFN service as part of its managed security products such as firewalls, managed detection and response, security information and event management (SIEM), secure web gateways and endpoint protection.
