ThreatQuotient Integrates with Intel 471 Cybercrime Intelligence

Integration equips organisations with real-time insight and proactive capabilities to mitigate the impact of existing and emerging threats within the cybercriminal underground

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – July 2, 2020 – ThreatQuotient™, a leading security operations platform innovator, has announced today a new integration with Intel 471, the premier provider of cybercrime intelligence for leading intelligence, security and fraud teams. The combination of Intel 471 Cybercrime Intelligence and the ThreatQ™ threat intelligence platform offers organisations real-time insight into existing and emerging threats within the cybercriminal underground, and equips them with proactive capabilities to mitigate impact to their organisations, assets and people.

Intel 471’s cybercrime intelligence is curated by infiltrating and maintaining access to closed sources where threat actors collaborate, communicate and plan cyber-attacks. Leveraging this underground access, Intel 471’s intelligence provides timely data and context on malware and adversary infrastructure. By centralising adversarial and malware intelligence within the ThreatQ platform, users are able to simplify complex security threats and automatically integrate the right intelligence across their security ecosystems to inform security decision makers.

ThreatQ’s Open Exchange provides an extensible and flexible environment for analysts to make their security operations more efficient and effective. The integration of Intel 471 cybercrime intelligence supports a variety of use cases, including:

Incident response and hunting – Additional IOCs (file- and network-based) and associated tools used by the threat actors deploying the malware are revealed, arming the organisation to enhance policies and rules to hunt for malicious activity and tools across their infrastructure.

Fraud detection and mitigation – Early access to advanced fraud tactics and methodologies allows organisations to proactively detect and mitigate business impact through recommended courses of action, protecting profitability by validating or improving fraud controls and countermeasures.

Patch Vulnerability and Management – Qualitative and contextual insight on vulnerabilities being discussed, pursued, weaponised and sold within the cybercriminal underground can be investigated in association with an organisation’s attack surface, enabling the prioritisation of vulnerabilities most relevant and impactful to business operations.

Anthony Stitt, APJC Regional Director at ThreatQuotient, said: “ThreatQuotient’s collaboration with Intel 471 will provide customers in the APAC region with enhanced resources to improve their proactive capabilities in threat mitigation. Increasingly, organisations are interested in the activities of threat actors and how they operate. Intel 471 focuses on this area, so their intelligence uniquely complements any other data sources in our threat library. It is important as an industry, we continuously collaborate to support organisations in finding an optimal balance between system automation and expert analysis to detect threats before it escalates. By using ThreatQ to automate certain actions, workflows and tools, security teams can work in unison and focus their resources on the most relevant threats, which makes taking the right actions faster”.

Mark Arena, CEO at Intel 471, said: “In a continuously evolving threat environment, it is critical for organisations of all sizes to rapidly adapt and focus on the threats that matter. The adoption of Intel 471’s high value, high impact intelligence operationalised within ThreatQ’s intelligence platform enables rapid threat identification, remediation and ultimately risk reduction. The strength of our partnership with ThreatQ enables our joint customers to transform their security programs from being incident-centric and reactive to proactive and risk driven. My only wish is that ThreatQ had a kangaroo as a mascot rather than a rhino, as a proud Australian.“
