SAN MATEO, Calif., July 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Exabeam and ThreatConnect, Inc.©, leaders in Security Intelligence solutions, today announced a new product integration, designed to improve overall cybersecurity and incident response (IR).
As recently reported in Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, 75% of data breaches in 2016 were perpetrated by external actors and 51% involved organized criminal groups. Breach detection can be improved by combining activity information within an organization with external threat intelligence data. In addition, the 2017 SANS Annual Incident Response Survey reports that 73% of survey respondents use threat intelligence to improve incident response. The integration of this valuable threat intelligence data with IR automation technology gives security teams improved situational awareness, leading to more effective responses.
ThreatConnect provides a platform to aggregate, analyze and act on third party, open source, and its own threat intelligence data. Exabeam Incident Responder enables automation and orchestration of activities within an incident response team. Together, these solutions enable customers to reduce risk and improve the productivity of their security teams. The joint solution is already in use today at leading Fortune 500 organizations.
“To manage ever-growing threats, our customers require better information that leads to better incident management,” said Ted Plumis, VP Alliances at Exabeam. “Our partnership with ThreatConnect provides that information and intelligence. It’s already helping global companies improve their security posture.”
Dan Cole, ThreatConnect’s Director of Product Management said, “This integration gives Exabeam customers additional insight into indicators of compromise, which expedites the identification of phishing and other attacks, as well as increases their overall threat defense surface area.”
