NEW YORK and ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Flashpoint, the leading software and data services provider of intelligence from the Deep and Dark Web, and ThreatConnect, the creator of the most widely adopted Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), today announced a partnership to deliver Flashpoint's threat intelligence directly into the ThreatConnect platform. This partnership gives users the means to include Flashpoint's unique datasets into their intelligence gathering and on-demand security research – all within ThreatConnect's centralized platform.
Flashpoint's structured datasets are cultivated from threatening communities active within the Deep and Dark Web -- from cybercriminals to terrorists. These datasets enable organizations to discover meaningful data in order to understand their adversaries more comprehensively and mitigate looming threats. Flashpoint's detailed high value datasets are generated by proprietary and automated tools that leverage the company's subject matter experts' intimate understanding of the content and cultures of these threatening communities.
ThreatConnect's platform eliminates traditional threat intelligence hurdles such as security analysts having to monitor multiple feeds and information sources individually 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 Flashpoint subscribers are able to seamlessly draw Flashpoint's Deep and Dark Web intelligence into the ThreatConnect platform. This partnership maximizes the ROI and value of customers' existing security investments and security operations postures.
"As criminals, hackers and other bad actors engage in illicit activities and coordinate their efforts on the Deep and Dark Web, organizations are finding themselves the targets of harmful actions without warning," said Flashpoint CEO Josh Lefkowitz. "By integrating Flashpoint's data into the the ThreatConnect Platform, users now have access to unique and differentiated data offering greater insight into these malicious areas of the Internet and specific threats that need immediate attention."
"We are dedicated to providing ThreatConnect users with the highest quality threat intelligence data available," said Product Director Andrew Pendergast. "By partnering with Flashpoint, users now have access to opaque areas of the internet enabling them to stay ahead of threats incubating in the Deep and Dark Web. Within ThreatConnect, users can use this intelligence to enhance the story of attribution and intent behind every indicator to make more informed operational and strategic security decisions."
The integration of Flashpoint threat intelligence and the ThreatConnect platform is available today.
