ThreatQ Investigations Recognized for Success in Bringing Order to the Chaos of Security Operations
Reston, VA – October 9, 2018 – ThreatQuotient™, a trusted threat intelligence platform innovator, today announced that ThreatQ™ Investigations, the industry’s first cybersecurity situation room, was named the 2018 Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards winner for Security Response Solution of The Year. The breakthrough awards recognize the top companies, products, innovation and people in the cybersecurity industry today, and submissions are judged by an independent panel of experts within the information security industry. Launched in April 2018, ThreatQ Investigations allows real-time visualization of an investigation within a shared environment, enabling teams to better understand and coordinate a response.
It is well established that security teams are challenged by a deluge of alerts and cases. Critical is identifying which are most relevant and taking the right responses quickly to reduce time to detect and time to respond. This requires individuals and teams working collaboratively to analyze and understand an incident or situation before they can coordinate and automate their response with confidence and reliability. Built on top of the ThreatQ threat intelligence platform, ThreatQ Investigations brings order to the chaos of security operations that occurs when teams work in silos, acting independently, inefficiently and unable to coordinate tasks and share intelligence easily. ThreatQ Investigations answers this industry challenge by providing a single view into a complete situation at hand, including what actions are being taken, by whom and when.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by the Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards for our innovations in security response,” said John Czupak, President and CEO of ThreatQuotient. “With security teams dispersed all over the globe today, ThreatQ Investigations provides a unique, much needed window into the chaotic world of incidents and operations where multiple people and teams are working on related, yet separate tasks. Our goal is to offer the most collaborative analysis and coordinated response tool on the market, and we look forward to the continued development of ThreatQ Investigations to fulfill this need.”
ThreatQ Investigations streamlines collaboration while also giving individuals the freedom to test theories prior to sharing with the group to ensure accuracy and relevance. Team leaders can direct actions, assign tasks and see the results unfold in near real-time. The cybersecurity situation room offers users access to three main features: the Evidence Board, for users to visualize and understand data relationships and jointly perform analysis in a collaborative manner, driving down detection and response times; the Timeline for building incident and adversary campaign timelines and understanding how a response unfolded; and the Action Panel, enabling task coordination across individuals and teams involved in the response to take the right steps at the right time.
By leveraging the existing capabilities provided by ThreatQ, ThreatQ Investigations allows for the capturing, learning and sharing of knowledge. Use cases for ThreatQ Investigations include not only response situations that enable actions faster than previously possible, but also anticipation situations that accelerate understanding of emerging threats to update defense posture proactively and retrospective analysis to learn from past experiences to improve response and anticipation use cases in the future.
