ThreatQuotient is a threat intelligence platform (TIP) that centrally manages and correlates unlimited external sources with all internal security and analytics solutions for contextual, operationalized intelligence in a single pane of glass. ThreatQ is also the first TIP to provide Indicator Nurturing, which goes beyond enrichment to help customers tailor indicators of compromise (IOCs) more specifically to their infrastructure.
Headquartered in Northern Virginia, ThreatQuotient was founded in 2013 by two former security operations analysts to provide organizations the ability to correlate with confidence.. .
HAWK Defense provides an innovative Big Data Security Analytics (BDSA) platform that allows enterprises make timely, well-informed security decisions from the ever-growing aggregations of logged data. Hawk’s eyeCon software solution bridges the gap between legacy SIEM and Big Data Analytics with a massively scalable architecture that delivers high-speed data ingestion and a highly efficient patented analytics engine.
HAWK Defense customers benefit from rapid installation and setup times, simple administration, out-of-the-box analytics, and dynamic threat intelligence feeds. The eyeCon solution supports the security analyst a ‘single pane of glass’ with insight to indicators of compromise that were previously undetectable, support to validate, prioritize, and respond to increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.
eyeCon technology is also used to ensure compliance with a myriad of mandates such as PCI DSS, NERC CIP, GLBA, FISMA, HIPAA, SOX and GPG 13. Alert-driven correlation, while important, is limited to those events that trigger on a security device.
These alerts without context have the propensity to generate false alarms at a very high rate. Confidently detecting true indicators of compromise (IOCs) in a timely manner requires the ability to consume all streaming event data, correlating alerts, and applying advanced analytics to user activity, application activity, and asset activity from all systems.
The ability to actively observe and measure behaviors from data across the entire enterprise IT environment is critical to determine validity and priority of real threats. Alert data + Behavior data analyzed together will lead to a higher degree of accuracy and capability to deliver effective, timely response to true IOCs for effective risk mitigation..
VirusBay is a web-based collaboration platform with relevant malware researchers. It is designed to help organizations effectively respond to and recover from an IT security incident when it is not possible for an external expert to visit their facility.
VirusBay enables an affected enterprise to collaborate with malware researchers on Indicators of Compromise and the creation of an incident report, among other things. In return, the researcher gains access to malware samples for analysis to improve detection for all.
The ultimate goal of VirusBay is to build a community of expertise and data sharing. VirusBay was created as an independent project by Ido Naor, a Senior Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab and Dani Goland..
