Extending Market Leadership in Threat Intelligence Operations

ThreatConnect continued to extend its position as the innovation leader in threat intelligence operations.  Key new product innovations include:

  • Intelligence Requirements –  By enabling cyber threat intelligence teams to seamlessly document, manage, and action their intelligence requirements directly within the ThreatConnect platform, customers can more efficiently and effectively align their efforts towards the greatest risks to their business.  No other threat intelligence management solution offers this capability.
  • ATT&CK Visualizer   – This new capability allows customers to analyze their threat intelligence using the Mitre ATT&CK Framework. Our easy-to-use visual tool enables a comprehensive understanding and documentation of threat actor behaviors  Using ATT&CK Visualizer, customers can detect, prevent, and respond to threats faster and more effectively. 
  • Enhancements to the CAL™ Automated Threat Library (ATL) CAL ATL is a unique AI/ML engine that forms the core of the company’s rapidly expanding AI strategy.  Today, CAL ATL distills over 60 definitive OSINT sources, such as blogs and social media, into a structured, ready-to-use threat intel feed. It automates aggregation and analysis using AI/Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to extract and tag MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques, saving daily hours of manual analyst effort.  As we continue to advance  our  AI/ML innovation, 2023 saw CAL become an even more valuable foundational element of the ThreatConnect platform:  
    • The data science and big data analytics team that drive CAL have led our delivery and research in Generative AI capabilities. We’ve launched initial intelligence summarization capabilities in ATL and have even bigger plans for  2024 to make analysts’ lives significantly easier with this technology. 
    • The CAL repository experienced remarkable growth by 44% to more than 241 Billion data points, providing a much larger data set to glean intelligence insights.
    • Integration with the new Intelligence Requirements feature allowed customers to find nearly 3 million relevant intelligence insights across 1,500 topics.
  • Native Reporting By enabling in-platform report generation, ThreatConnect empowers analysts to provide stakeholders with the necessary information and insights to make strategic, tactical, and operational decisions.
