How ThreatQ Embodies RSAC 2023 Theme: Stronger TogetherLeon Ward
RSAConference 2023 USA hit the nail on the head with this year’s theme: Stronger Together. From the U.S. federal government’s prioritization to promote threat intelligence sharing, to the geopolitical environment and joining of allies to combat cyberwarfare, and the cybersecurity industry’s buzz around frameworks and architectures that prioritize detection and response across the enterprise. It seems that everywhere you turn, the focus is on how teams, tools, and processes can come together and achieve stronger, more effective cybersecurity. In fact, “stronger together” is a theme that holds true for ThreatQuotient as well. And RSAC, which takes place April 24-27, presents the perfect opportunity to ramp up this discussion in person.
Since our founding, ThreatQuotient has focused on breaking down silos so we can come together to strengthen security. The ThreatQ Platform is specifically designed to fully integrate with the equipment, tools, technologies, people, organizations and processes that protect your organization. Through a software development kit (SDK) and easy to use APIs, our Open Exchange provides the most adaptable set of integrations in the industry, supporting a wide array of commercial, industry, private and custom solutions. Customers can simply go to the ThreatQ Marketplace to download the integrations they need.
The ThreatQ DataLinq Engine is one example of how the ThreatQ Platform puts those integrations to work. Threat actors work across the entire organization, so it’s critical for SOC teams to “connect the dots” across all data sources, tools and teams to get a complete picture of what is happening in order to accelerate threat detection, investigation and response. ThreatQ DataLinq Engine takes a unique approach to make sense of massive volumes of data, working through five key stages: ingest, normalize, correlate, prioritize and translate. The goal in the early stages is to enable data in different formats and languages from different vendors, feeds and systems to work together. From there, the DataLinq Engine focuses on getting the right data to the right systems and teams at the right time to make security operations more data driven, efficient and effective.
ThreatQ Investigations is another example of how we enable strength in numbers. As the industry’s first cybersecurity situation room, it is designed for collaborative threat analysis, shared understanding and coordinated response. Fusing together threat data, evidence and users, ThreatQ Investigations embeds visualization and documentation in a shared environment. Incident handlers, malware researchers, SOC analysts and investigation leads gain more insights and control and are able to drive down mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR).
Finally, ThreatQ Data Exchange helps teams operationalize threat intelligence to achieve consistent detection across locations and to ensure global security risk is covered. Central intel teams have an easy way to setup bi-directional sharing of relevant data across many teams and organizations of all sizes to enable and manage intel collaboration. At the same time, settings within ThreatQ Data Exchange accommodate privacy and data segregation requirements unique to teams, locations and customers, so central teams can curate threat intelligence for local consumption based on parameters they control.
Clearly, we’re gratified that the word is spreading across all aspects of cybersecurity – industry and government, strategic and tactical, technical and organizational – that we’re stronger together. We’d love to hear your perspective.
At RSAC, we’re coming together with Intel 471, Maltego and Trellix as a sponsor of the 2nd Annual Unmasking Cyber Threats networking event. Join us at The W San Francisco on Wednesday, April 26, 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm for drinks, appetizers and time to catch up with friends and colleagues. There’s even a chance to win prizes. RSVP now.
We look forward to seeing you there and continuing the conversation with you!
