Uppsala Security has announced the launch of TOMS 2.0, which is an updated version of the already deployed Threat Reputation Database On-premise Management System (introduced at the end of March 2021).
As mentioned in a release, the product was initially created to “address an increased demand for on-premise solutions designed to meet the latest and strictest regulatory requirements in the digital assets space and through its new added features it provides even more efficient and seamless results.”
Key features of TOMS 2.0 reportedly include “up-to-date Threat Intelligence Data, flexibility when it comes to its integration — it can work with any organization, its applications, and services via a RESTful API.”
As its name suggests, the on-premise characteristic, “enables dynamic online access to the latest collective Security Intelligence data hosted in the Threat Reputation Database (TRDB) without any active Internet connection on an organization’s Internal computer network.”
The update further noted that regulations in the blockchain/decentralized ecosystem are “gradually getting stricter and more specific on a worldwide scale.” The announcement also mentioned that high-profile government agencies, financial institutions, and financial software applications that need to be compliant with the strictest regulatory frameworks are “often required to adopt on-premise solutions in order to increase data privacy and security.”
By using a product like TOMS, worldwide customers of Uppsala Security can “not only enjoy access to the latest crowdsourced Threat Intelligence, but can do so in a safe and on-premise, compliant environment.”
The 2.0 version of TOMS comes with several different enhancements across different aspects, as follows:
- Display of the download progress bar;
- The current TRDB version available will be visible on the TMS screen (as the Datetime stamp);
- There will only be a single frontend: TMS (the frontend of RTS has been merged with that of TMS so that the users no longer have to log in twice);
- Auto-sync settings are changed to a hh:mm format;
- The auto-sync settings or manual trigger will check for any missing files and download, deploy to RTS and update the dB automatically (the missing files are checked between the last downloaded file and the latest TRDB version available);
- Local TRDB Housekeeping
- Full IOC and Update IOC File will be kept for 14 days;
- The IOC File downloaded timestamp older than 14 days will be auto-deleted.

Supporting the framework is a team of cybersecurity professionals who offer a suite of advanced tools and services for Crypto AML, KYC Intelligence, Transaction Tracking, and Regulatory Compliance Analytics “enabling organizations to protect their crypto assets from malicious attacks and scams while meeting regulatory compliance standards.”
