Threat Intelligence Platform Adds Comprehensive Reporting for Security Management and the C-Suite, Enhanced Customization Features and Faster Analysis; Available Both On-Premises and in the Cloud
ARLINGTON, Va. - Tuesday, January 26th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ThreatConnect®, Inc., today announced ThreatConnect 4.0, the latest version of the industry’s only true threat intelligence platform (TIP). Immediately available for all customers, ThreatConnect 4.0 offers customized reporting catering to Directors and the C-suite, making it easy for these stakeholders to evaluate threat intelligence. Security Directors can easily see the impact threat intelligence is having across their organization and make real-time playbook and workflow decisions to maximize efforts. Plus, chief information security officers (CISO) gain a much-demanded ability to measure the return on investment (ROI) of Threat Intelligence.
"Cyber threats are no longer solely a problem for security teams and analysts, the stakes and prevalence of data breaches affect more organizations’ missions and bottom line, making this a greater area of C-Suite and board-level involvement,” said ThreatConnect CEO Adam Vincent. “While we often refer to our platform as ‘made for analysts, by analysts’, we recognize the need to deliver insights that are easily digestible from the security analyst all the way to the CISO, in one platform, and that’s exactly what we’ve done with ThreatConnect 4.0.”
There are several additional differentiators within ThreatConnect 4.0 including the ability to distinguish the quality, relevance and accuracy (false positives) of intelligence sources being evaluated. In an easily understood visual, ThreatConnect 4.0 is grouped in four sections: sources, indicators, intelligence, and activities. An overview of all assessed data from within the organization, specified communities and threat feeds is provided all on one screen. All sources of indicators are then plotted on a ‘threat rating versus confidence’ quadrant, making it effortless to compare and contrast the greatest areas of concern. These new features enable executives, security teams and analysts to collaborate and make faster, informed decisions on how to invest time and resources, dramatically improving security ROI.
ThreatConnect 4.0 also boasts a new user interface, with an improved, easy to navigate dashboard and intuitive views of team workflows and collaboration to enhance helping security staffs and managers readily understanding of what is happening and what is important with a simple glance.
ThreatConnect 4.0 includes previous aspects as well, most notably its ability to be both on-premises and in cloud – the only TIP in the market with this capability – to flexibly suit different organizations’ requirements. In addition, ThreatConnect 4.0 continues to offer access to the highly valuable TC Exchange, which allows users to join or create their own communities - accessing open source and premium feeds to enhance intelligence gathering. Also within TC Exchange, users can build, host and share secure, customized applications that enable better contextual intelligence gathering, analysis and sharing.
