France’s leading ISAC has chosen ThreatQuotient’s Threat Intelligence Platform
to help its members combat their adversaries effectively.
Paris, 7 October 2019 – ThreatQuotient™, a pioneer in the market of security operations platforms, and CIX-A, France’s leading ISAC, have joined forces to support CISOs in their day-to-day operations, focusing on 4 top priorities: threat status monitoring, data and information systems protection, anticipation, and mitigation.
In their defense against cyber threats, CISOs can readily access news about digital security, as well as analyses about known attacks routinely reported in the media, and receive security alerts from vendors. However. they do not necessarily have a 360-degree view of the threat landscape, nor have all the needed threat intelligence at their fingertips so that they can better understand their adversaries or counter cyber attacks effectively. In addition, CISOs do not systematically share the techniques used to speed up detection and incident response with their peers.
This is where CIX-A comes in. Their goal is to actively share intelligence about cyber threats between businesses as well as public and private bodies. The idea is that for a specific purpose – pooling intelligence resources – each CISO can receive and share publicly available information, alerts from publishers, or information about their own company.
A technical tool for threat analysis
CIX-A was keen to acquire a professional cyber threat intelligence management and operational tool for those members who are prepared to exchange and collaborate, to give them a way of sharing strategic, operational and tactical information.
“ThreatQuotient’s security operations and threat intelligence platform ThreatQ™ is undoubtedly the maturest tool on the market” explains Michel Cazenave, Chair of the association CIX-A. “It efficiently combines all the intelligence sources that our members can access, and is based on exchange and collaboration in order to analyse the threat, identify attack paths, and define suitable mitigation strategies”.
While most of CIX-A’s members are large corporations who use threat intelligence within their SOCs, the non-profit also collaborates with smaller companies, especially those who are part of members’ supply chains and, as such, are particularly prone to rebound attacks.
“Over the past 4 years we’ve noticed a development of the threat intelligence market in France and Europe. We’d like to continue to play a part in promoting education in this sector. So today we’re very honored to have teamed up with France’s leading ISAC community” says Cyrille Badeau, ThreatQuotient’s Vice-President for Europe. “Through its integration with the MITRE ATT&CK Framework, our platform helps CIX-A members structure their intelligence systems, as well as analyze cybercriminals’ tactics and attack techniques to effectively tackle their own adversaries”.
Sharing threat intelligence means ISACs can provide their members with prioritized and context-specific information, helping them make the right decisions, either proactively prior to the attack or reactively for incident response.
ThreatQuotient’s mission is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations with a platform that accelerates and simplifies investigations and collaboration within and across teams and tools. Integrating an organization’s existing processes and technologies into a unified workspace, ThreatQuotient’s solutions reduce noise, highlight top priority threats and automate processes to provide greater focus and decision support while maximizing limited resources. ThreatQuotient’s threat-centric approach supports multiple use cases including incident response, threat hunting, spear phishing, alert triage and vulnerability management, and also serves as a threat intelligence platform. ThreatQuotient is headquartered in Northern Virginia with international operations based out of Europe and APAC. For more information, visit https://threatquotient.com.
CIX-A (Cyber Intelligence X sectors Alliance) is a non-profit helping to improve the digital ecosystem’s cybersecurity by actively sharing information about cyber threats between businesses as well as public and private bodies.
