ThreatQ is the first threat-centric security operations platform to be approved for a DoD-wide ATO
Reston, Va. – June 10, 2020 – ThreatQuotient™, a leading security operations platform innovator, today announced that the ThreatQ™ platform has been granted Authority to Operate (ATO) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) at the Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) level. Authority to Operate as part of the Host Based Security System (HBSS) Infrastructure allows the ThreatQ platform to be deployed more swiftly by the DoD to meet their cybersecurity challenges.
ThreatQ, the first threat-centric security operations platform to be granted a DoD-wide ATO, supports multiple use cases including incident response, threat hunting, spear phishing, alert triage, vulnerability management and serving as a threat intelligence platform. The platform also supports future use cases by adapting to changing business needs. Security operations teams are using ThreatQ to apply customer-defined scoring of threat intelligence, quickly deploy threat data to existing sensor grids, and focus workflows on time to detect (TTD) and time to respond (TTR).
“ThreatQuotient is proud to be granted a DoD-wide ATO, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue serving the global infrastructure that carries information for the DoD, national security and related intelligence community,” says Gigi Schumm, SVP of Worldwide Sales. “Government agencies are considered critical infrastructure and are under constant attack from hackers, political activists and foreign state-sponsored actors. Approval for ThreatQ at the DoDIN level demonstrates ThreatQuotient’s credibility, commitment to innovating for the Federal market, and our commitment to meeting and exceeding industry standards.”
ThreatQ’s open and extensible architecture was built on APIs to allow for deep integrations and bi-directional data sharing, enabling the orchestration, automation and synchronization of cyber threat intelligence across systems and teams. The ThreatQ platform has the most in-depth set of integrations in the industry, working seamlessly with and complementing a wide range of solutions, including enrichment and analysis tools, orchestration, sensors, SIEM and log management, ticketing and intelligence feeds.
As part of the HBSS architecture, ThreatQ is verified and available to the Federal market quickly and efficiently to be used to monitor, detect, and defend DoD computer networks and systems. The DoD ATO process follows the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF), which integrates security and risk management activities into the system development life cycle. The risk-based approach to security control selection and specification considers effectiveness, efficiency, and constraints due to applicable laws, directives, Executive Orders, policies, standards, or regulations.
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.
