From  the morning email check: ThreatLabZ, the research arm of cloud security vendor Zscaler, is rolling out a free tool IT shops can use to analyze their particular web risks.

Some details the Zscaler folks sent me:

According to Zscaler ThreatLabZ, the research arm of Cloud Security Company Zscaler, the average web user encounters 3-4 threats per day.

In efforts to help secure all users, Zscaler ThreatLabZ will soon release a free security service for comprehensively analyzing web pages for malicious content. Called Zulu, this new service freely available to all web users is the most comprehensive of its kind, pulling data from website content, URL, host, and multiple threat sources to provide the user with a real-time risk score they can trust, even if the web page is down. It also provides historical scores, showing when sites were first compromised or cleaned-up. And unlike similar services, Zulu results are always in real-time (never static), providing the user with the best possible data on any given web page.

Simultaneously, Zscaler will also be launching ThreatLabZ Portal, a single source of continually updated content designed to showcase the latest research initiatives and free security tools, such as Zulu, from Zscaler ThreatLabZ.

It’s supposed to be made publicly available sometime today.
