TC Console

Organizations willing to barter in information may be able to get themselves a huge boost in network visibility via a tool called TC Console. Offered by the nonprofit security research firm Team Cymru, TC Console offers historical views of malicious network activity and data-driven summaries of network traffic on the network, cross-referenced with global statistics about malicious activity on the Internet that's collected by the group. The tool is free but only if an organization is willing to share network information that gets fed back into the Team Cymru community database.
