Improving Accuracy and Efficiency in Security Operations with ThreatConnect

ThreatConnect is the central nervous system for your entire security ecosystem. Our intelligence-driven Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) Platform is a place for your security team to work smarter, together. As a company, we are driving the evolution of security operations by delivering enriched, fortified, context-filled threat intelligence along with comprehensive analytics, seamless automation and orchestration, plus workflows and case management so that every member of your security team can be more effective individually and the team can be more efficient as a whole.

As a security expert, you already know that good intelligence drives better decisions and outcomes. But intel is only valuable if it can be turned into action and action is only meaningful if it is rapid, repeatable and effective. To harness intelligence and streamline various workflows involved in security operations, many organizations use both a Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) and a SOAR to manage intelligence and workflows separately.

But ThreatConnect brings all of these critical functions together – it is both a TIP and SOAR in one. ThreatConnect unites intelligence, analytics, automation and orchestration into one system of record for the security team. With ThreatConnect, your team has a single source of truth. You’ll improve collaboration, increase accuracy and efficiency, and strengthen alignment of your business and security goals.

To drive improvements in accuracy and efficiency across the people, processes and technologies that make up your security program, we believe there is a dire need for:

Centralization and Normalization of Internal and External Security Data: We believe that intelligence-driven security equals better security. But we also recognize that with so many sources of intelligence, both external and internal, it is incredibly difficult to filter signal from the noise. Decisions based on bad data are likely worse than those based on none. You need a central location to store, filter, normalize and enrich this intelligence. A way to distill intelligence down and harness this data for better decision making.

ThreatConnect allows you to fuse intelligence from multiple sources – whether open source, subscription based, or gathered internally from your environment. The Platform also features an incredibly powerful feature called CAL™(Collective Analytics Layer ) which provides anonymized, crowdsourced intel about threats and indicators found within these intelligence sources. It leverages the collective insight of the thousands of analysts who use ThreatConnect worldwide to provide your team with even more context regarding indicators and threats.

Our approach allows you to filter intelligence down to what matters most, ensuring that human and machine actions are driven by the highest fidelity data. This reduces wasted cycles, prevents you from tilting at windmills and increases focus on the most relevant threats.

Automation and Workflows: We believe that the only way for cybersecurity teams to simultaneously address the daily pressures of case management, alert triage, incident response, and other investigations and also maximize the efficiency of limited staff is to have repeatable, documented automation and workflows.

With the powerful Workflows features in ThreatConnect users can:

  • Turn the expertise of leaders and senior analysts into reusable process templates to ensure consistency across operations, reducing the risk of critical missed steps or evidence
  • Increase efficiency by running machine automation seamlessly alongside human ingenuity (we don’t take a “black box” approach, either – all automated actions taken are easily viewable in-line with manual activities)
  • Reduce the time it takes to uncover relevant threat intelligence and related case data or patterns by exposing it directly to analysts in real time, lowering the risk of false positives and increasing the accuracy of the response
  • Create new intelligence from ground-truth operational data to inform future response, and
  • Enable de-siloing across SOC, IR, and threat intel teams with multiple collaboration tools

The capabilities are powerful and the improvements they deliver to your security operations will be felt overnight.

Let us show you a demo to get you on the pathway to improving the accuracy and efficiency of your security program.
