With the increase in Globalization, the cyber attack is also increasing. Nowadays, the attacks are so much sophisticated and the cyber professional are finding themselves unable to mitigate the assets. Cyber Threat Maps are the tools that are helpful to know and understand the real life attack going on in world.

Some Cyber Threat Map:

#1 LookingGlass:

#2 Kaspersky

Kaspersky tracks attacks in real time on a massive, rotating, 3D representation of the globe. The map collates all the information gathered from a variety of sources, including an on-demand scanner, web and email antivirus programs, and intrusion and vulnerability scans. It also keeps track of botnet activity, much like the Trend Micro map.

If the 3D map is too much for your device, you can access the data in table form from the Stats menu, making it useful for tracking cyber attacks on the go. The attacks are color coded by data source and you can filter out any data source with one click, making it easy to see, for example, just intrusion-style hacks.

#3 FireEye

FireEye is a publicly traded cybersecurity company headquartered in Milpitas, California. It provides hardware, software, and services to investigate cybersecurity attacks, protect against malicious software, and analyze IT security risks. FireEye was founded in 2004. Initially, it focused on developing virtual machines that would download and test internet traffic before transferring it to a corporate or government network. The company diversified over time, in part through acquisitions. In 2014, it acquired Mandiant, which provides incident response services following the identification of a security breach.

#4 Fortnit:

Fortinet is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. It develops and markets cybersecurity software and appliances and services, such as firewalls, anti-virus, intrusion prevention and endpoint security.

In July 2014, Fortinet announced a technical certification program called Network Security Expert (NSE) that included eight levels of certification. Later, in March 2016, the company launched a Network Security Academy to help fill open cyber security jobs in the U.S. Fortinet donated equipment and provided information to universities to help train students for jobs in the field. Also in 2016, Fortinet launched a program called FortiVet to recruit military veterans for cybersecurity jobs.

#5 ThreatCloud

Threat Cloud may be the most comprehensive one available to the public. The company claims to have the largest dedicated threat intelligence network in the world. It collects data from more than 8 million “sensors” — honey pots that convince hackers that they have broken into the targeted system when actually they have been diverted to a virtual machine that tracks their IP address, the tools that they’re using and other identifying information.

Threat’s map tracks attack types and origin points, and users can filter the map by protocol. This map is also capable of displaying a live feed of attacks as they are going on, making it the closest we’ve got to real-time tracking of current cyber attacks. It also keeps track of which services are being accessed through which ports in the attacks, making it easier for cybersecurity pros to determine which attacks might target their servers or systems.
