In all, the company closed new deals with more than 40 enterprises, including:

  • A top 10 software company
  • A Fortune 500 investment management leader
  • A top 5 global airline

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 –  Customers can now more efficiently and effectively align their resources and costs towards the greatest risks to their business by allowing cyber threat intelligence teams to document, manage, and action their intelligence requirements directly within the ThreatConnect platform.  No other threat intelligence management solution offers this capability.
  • ATT&CK Visualizer   – Detect, prevent, and respond to threats faster by analyzing threat intelligence using the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework in an easy-to-use visualization tool that helps understand and memorialize threat actor behaviors.  
  • Enhancements to the CAL™ Automated Threat Library (ATL) CAL ATL is an AI/ML engine unique to ThreatConnect, forming the core of the company’s rapidly expanding AI strategy.  Today, CAL ATL saves hours of manual analyst effort every day by distilling 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/ML and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to extract and tag MITRE ATT&CK® tactics and techniques.  As the company expanded its AI/ML innovation in 2023, CAL became an even more valuable foundational element of the ThreatConnect platform:  
    • We’ve launched initial intelligence summarization capabilities in ATL and have big plans in 2024 to make analysts’ lives significantly easier through our research and delivery of  Generative AI technology. 
    • The CAL repository grew 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 enables analysts to provide stakeholders with the necessary information and insights to make strategic, tactical, and operational decisions.

Meeting the Emerging Need for Cyber Risk Quantification

ThreatConnect added key innovations in data-driven Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ) to support growing customer needs to meet SEC materiality and cyber insurance requirements and integrate with governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions.  This led to the doubling of the business in 2023 and set it up for even greater performance in 2024.

 Specific innovations include:

  • SEC Materiality and Cyber Insurance – RQ customers can now answer questions about SEC Materiality, whether they have adequate cyber insurance coverage, and how they compare to peer sets in terms of losses.
  • ServiceNow Integration – ServiceNow GRC customers can quantify cyber risk in financial terms directly within their current risk assessment workflow.
  • Custom Loss Models – Customers can now add custom loss models to our existing AI / ML models.

Achieving Industry Recognition

ThreatConnect continued to garner the attention of top-tier industry analysts and media, including: 

Dave DeWalt Joins as Executive Chairman of the Board

Underscoring the tremendous opportunity ahead, Dave DeWalt, former CEO of FireEye, McAfee, and Documentum and Founder and CEO of NightDragon, a dedicated cybersecurity, safety, security, and privacy investment and advisory firm, as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board.

Looking Ahead to 2024

Coming off the momentum of 2023, ThreatConnect is once again poised for growth in 2024 by continuing to provide enterprise customers with leading threat intelligence and risk quantification solutions. 

Exciting new product capabilities, including the expanded use of AI to surface the greatest risks to our customers’ businesses, set the table for extending the company’s position as an innovation leader.  Alongside product innovations, the company will extend its partnerships to open new routes to market and help our customers achieve more value faster.
