ThreatConnect Expands Unique Marketplace Enabling Organizations to Effectively Aggregate, Analyze, and Act on Other Threat Intelligence Sources via ThreatConnect Platform
ThreatConnect, Inc., the leading provider of security services including the ThreatConnect® Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), today announced a partnership with CrowdStrike. The partnership further strengthens ThreatConnect’s Marketplace, delivering premium and open-source threat intelligence directly into ThreatConnect, allowing customers to derive even more extensive and actionable intelligence from their existing security data. CrowdStrike’s Falcon Intelligence is now available to ThreatConnect users, giving them the means to aggregate premium security data from CrowdStrike that complements intelligence gathering and on-demand security research – all within ThreatConnect’s centralized platform. CrowdStrike provides deep insight through its adversary profiles to augment end-users’ understanding of the motives, behaviors, and tactics used by attackers and help them optimize the effectiveness of their security responses.
“We are thrilled to provide CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence in ThreatConnect,” said Adam Meyers, Vice President of Intelligence at CrowdStrike. “With Falcon Intelligence, organizations can leverage our advanced, real-time adversary attribution engine to maximize the value of existing security investments, gain immediate insight into targeted attacks, and prioritize and focus resources on the most critical threats.”
ThreatConnect’s Marketplace underscores the company’s unique platform-based approach to threat intelligence that continually allows users to access, manipulate and act on information from a host of trusted sources, in context with their own security data – all in a single, on-premises or cloud platform. ThreatConnect’s platform eliminates traditional threat intelligence hurdles such as security analysts having to individually monitor multiple feeds and information sources in order to distil intelligence or needing to rely on cumbersome e-mails or spreadsheets to share time-sensitive threat information in real-time.
With today’s announcement, current CrowdStrike Falcon subscribers are able to seamlessly draw CrowdStrike’s global intelligence into the ThreatConnect platform. This maximizes the value and ROI advantages CrowdStrike and ThreatConnect offer to their customers’ existing security investments and security operations postures. ThreatConnect users have the option of conveniently creating, or activating existing CrowdStrike accounts right from within the ThreatConnect platform through the Marketplace.
“We are dedicated to providing ThreatConnect users with the highest quality threat intelligence data available,” said Product Director Andrew Pendergast. “By partnering with organizations like CrowdStrike, users have a more powerful system to search, correlate, and take action on relevant, high-context indicators that are impacting their network. Within ThreatConnect, users can use the historical context that tells the story of attribution and intent behind every indicator to make more informed operational and strategic security decisions.”
