Alex Heid, Chief Research Officer at SecurityScorecard explains, "what makes ThreatMarket™ so unique, is the ability to globally search for vulnerabilities across over 20 risk vectors with little effort. It allows security professionals to research specific hardware and software products, domains, IP addresses, ports, leaked information, malware sources, typosquats, improper server configurations, and more. Currently, no other product comes close to ThreatMarket™ in its ability to uncover security issues across so many areas of risk."
The technology uses sensors to analyze end-points, content management systems, anonymous posting services, and hacker chatter forums, in addition to custom built sinkhole infrastructures that track malware infections and behaviors across the world. An advanced collection of strategically deployed honeypots add to the massive amount of valuable information collected.
"ThreatMarket™ provides a unique outside-in perspective that non-intrusively uncovers millions of vulnerability data points on every organization across the entire internet," says Heid.
ThreatMarket™ also powers the SecurityScorecard rating platform, which enables organizations to gain operational command of their third party risk, with visibility into the security posture of their extended network of vendors. With recently awarded patents for their collection and calculation methodology, company IP mapping, and a distinct online portal with a searchable user interface for security risk reduction and improvement, the company provides the most accurate ratings.
ThreatMarket™ was also awarded Most Valuable Product (MVP) in the "Security" category for 2016 from Computer Technology Review. For more information on ThreatMarket™, visit: Booth #IC38 at Black Hat for a demonstration.
