ThreatConnect’s Browser Extension Puts Critical Information Within Fast and Easy Reach

Browser Extension

In cybersecurity, contextual data is important. Contextual data with speed becomes everything. But many cybersecurity teams are too far away from the critical information they need to make fast and accurate decisions. Time is not on your side. It is just an unfortunate fact that threat and security researchers spend too much time digging through multiple threat feed sources and disparate logs searching for key information and not enough time making the data actionable. 

ThreatConnect’s new Browser Extension brings the critical information your security team needs within fast and easy reach. You can review web-based resources and have potential indicators of compromise and related data elements highlighted to show that additional information is available. In one click, you can find expanded data gathered from the ThreatConnect CAL Automated Threat Library and all the threat intel sources available. 

Browser Extension

A practical example of the browser extension is in being used to disambiguate threat actor groups. So in your document, you might see the term APT41. The ThreatConnect browser extension has highlighted and hyperlinked this term to show that there is data available. You can click the hyperlink to instantly see, “APT41 is a threat group that researchers have assessed as a Chinese state-sponsored espionage group that also conducts financially-motivated operations. Active since at least 2012, APT41 has been observed targeting healthcare, telecom, technology, and video game industries in 14 countries. APT41 overlaps at least partially with public reporting on groups including BARIUM and Winnti Group.” 

Further, you can click an additional highlighted link and learn that “The state-sponsored group APT41 is also known as ARIUM, Winnti, LEAD, WICKED SPIDER, WICKED PANDA, Blackfly, Suckfly, Winnti Umbrella, and Double Dragon.” This contextual data helps maximize insight so that the best-informed decisions can be made quickly and efficiently.
