Threat Watch and Other Security Dashboards

I came across this interesting dashboard of current security threats from MessageLabs, a vendor of e-mail security products. Threat Watch has four graphs with the week's trends in virus, spam and phishing attacks. Each graph is a Flash object and can be clicked to open to a page about that particular type of attack.

The site is also full of monthly reports, whitepapers and all kinds of stuff for numbers junkies on attack statistics and up-to-date trends. MessageLabs could be described as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) for corporate messaging, including both e-mail and IM. Their service -- they offer no software -- protects against viruses, spam and spyware.

I have other security dashboards on my personal web site. Click on News. Next to Threat Watch, which I just added, is a complete collection of well-known dashboards from CBIZ, an accounting and consulting company. Some of these are already scattered around my site at the bottom of some pages.
