ThreatQuotient announces integration with Intel 471

ThreatQuotient today announced an integration with Intel 471. The combination of Intel 471 Cybercrime Intelligence and the ThreatQ threat intelligence platform offers organizations real-time insight into existing and emerging threats within the cybercriminal underground and equips them with proactive capabilities to mitigate impact to their organizations, assets and people.

“ThreatQuotient is pleased to partner with Intel 471 to provide organizations with enhanced resources to validate or improve their fraud controls and countermeasures. There is no single security solution that provides a silver bullet against attacks, so as an industry we must continuously innovate to support organizations in finding an optimal balance between system automation and expert analysis,” says Haig Colter, Director of Alliances at ThreatQuotient. “By using ThreatQ to automate certain actions and workflows, tools and people can work in unison, and security teams can focus resources on the most relevant threats and collaboratively investigate and respond to take the right actions faster.”

ThreatQ’s Open Exchange provides an extensible and flexible environment for analysts to make their security operations more efficient and effective. The integration of Intel 471 cybercrime intelligence supports a variety of use cases, including:

• Incident response and hunting – Additional IOCs (file- and network-based) and associated tools used by the threat actors deploying the malware are revealed, arming the organization to enhance policies and rules to hunt for malicious activity and tools across their infrastructure.

• Fraud detection and mitigation – Early access to advanced fraud tactics and methodologies allow organizations to proactively detect and mitigate business impact through recommended courses of action, protecting profitability by validating or improving fraud controls and countermeasures.

• Patch Vulnerability and Management – Qualitative and contextual insight on vulnerabilities being discussed, pursued, weaponized and sold within the cybercriminal underground can be investigated in association with an organization’s attack surface, enabling the prioritization of vulnerabilities most relevant and impactful to business operations.
