RESTON, VA — May 23, 2016 — ThreatQuotient, a threat intelligence platform provider, today announced it was ranked as the top Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) on Cybersecurity Ventures’ Q2 2016 edition of the Cybersecurity 500. The list is a global compilation of leading companies who provide cyber security solutions and services. The full list can be found at www.Cybersecurity500.com.

“This ranking is further evidence that our ‘out of the box’ thinking is paying huge dividends not only with our customers, but within the minds of the security community in general,” said John Czupak, President and CEO at ThreatQuotient. “Having emerged from stealth mode just six-months ago, I could not be more pleased with the momentum we have been able to generate and the industry recognition we have garnered. Because of ThreatQ’s unique power and ability to provide security professionals with critical contextual information, it is becoming a clear cornerstone tool for security teams looking for the best actionable intelligence.”

Recognized by Cybersecurity Ventures for its ability to improve an enterprise’s threat intelligence and security operations through an on-premise, vendor-agnostic platform, ThreatQuotient is revolutionizing cyber defense capabilities by building analyst-driven applications, helping organizations manage threat intelligence and defend against sophisticated cyber attacks. The company’s innovative TIP, ThreatQ, easily imports commercial, open source and private or industry threat intelligence. ThreatQ is the only TIP that centrally manages and correlates unlimited external sources with all internal security and analytics solutions for contextual, operationalized intelligence in a single view. As a result, ThreatQ enables threat intelligence teams to return their focus to analysis, and improve their security operations by reducing the amount of effort traditionally exerted into combining data sources.

The Cybersecurity 500 creates awareness and recognition for the most innovative cybersecurity companies – ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands, to VC-backed startups and emerging players, to small firms with potentially game-changing technologies, to solution providers poised for growth around productized or vertically focused services. The selection process is vast with research on thousands of companies that includes feedback from CISOs, IT security practitioners and service providers, as well as taking into account presence at events and coverage in the media. Companies are not ranked by revenue or annual growth, but rather by those seen as the hottest and most innovative.

ThreatQ was created by former security operations analysts and integrates with over 25 vendors to ensure customers can keep their detection solutions up to date. This strategic collaboration has resulted in the build out of over 100 feeds ranging from open source blacklists to commercial providers and several private communities.
