AMSTERDAM, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced cyber criminals, hacktivists and other rogue actors frequently and easily change their IP addresses, malware hashes and spam email addresses. However, it's much more difficult for them to change their motivations, goals, intents or attributions.
That's why Threat Management practitioners in the financial sector and other security-forward industries complement existing sources of intelligence with actor-centric intelligence.
EclecticIQ and Intel 471 have partnered to integrate action-centric intelligence collection into EclecticIQ's leading Threat Intelligence Platform. Several financial institutions in Europe and the United States have taken this approach, allowing threat analyst teams to work in an integrated environment where a wide variety of intelligence sources are fused and further processed.
Joep Gommers, CEO and Founder of EclecticIQ, comments: "Boutique and world-class intelligence collectors and suppliers are an important part of our ecosystem, bringing context to very specific and complex use-cases for our customers."
Actor-centric intelligence fused with incident-centric intelligence strongly increases the lifespan and relevancy of intelligence. This approach enables mature organizations to complement their reactive security practice with a proactive and predictive approach.
EclecticIQ is an applied cyber intelligence technology provider, enabling enterprise security programs and governments to mature a Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) practice, and empowering analysts to take back control of their threat reality and to mitigate exposure accordingly.
EclecticIQ's mission is to restore balance in the fight against cyber adversaries. Its flagship product, EclecticIQ Platform, is a Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), which enables operationalization of security information exchange, empowers collaborative analyst workflow and ensures timely integration of cyber threat intelligence detection, prevention and response capabilities.
EclecticIQ is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and holds offices in London and Moldova.
