Israeli cybersecurity startup IntSights releases industry’s first All-in-One enterprise threat intelligence & mitigation platform
With growing concerns about cyber security attack, organizations and governments need to be prepared, anticipate and mitigate cyber threats targeting their enterprises. One Tel Aviv Israel-based cybersecurity startup is already ahead of the bad actors with threat intelligence capabilities to help organizations stay in the know before cyber attack happens. The startup is called Intsights. Intsights is an intelligence driven security provider, established to meet the growing need for rapid, accurate cyber intelligence and incident mitigation. Their founders are veterans (Alon Arvatz, Gal Ben David and Guy Nizan) of elite military cybersecurity and intelligence units, where they acquired a deep understanding of how hackers think, collaborate and act. They are helping enterprises turn the tables on threat Actors by providing unique cyber reconnaissance capabilities power automated risk remediation.
Today, the company announced it has released the first of its kind Enterprise Threat Intelligence & Mitigation Platform that enables proactive defense by transforming threat intelligence into automated security action. Founded in 2015, IntSights is redefining cyber security with the industry’s first and only enterprise threat management platform that transforms tailored threat intelligence into automated security operations. Their groundbreaking data-mining algorithms and unique cyber reconnaissance capabilities continuously monitor an enterprise’s external digital profile across the surface, deep and dark web, categorize and analyze tens of thousands of threats, and automate the risk remediation lifecycle — streamlining workflows, maximizing resources and securing business operations. This has made IntSights’ one of the fastest growing cybersecurity companies in the world.
“One benefit of threat intelligence (TI) is that it improves decision making in core security processes, such as incident response and policy enforcement,” wrote Craig Lawson, Research VP, and Khushbu Pratap, Principal Research Analyst, at Gartner. “Better visibility of the threat landscape helps CISOs justify the need for additional resources and understand the problems they encounter. Technical information, such as internet protocol (IP) reputation or log extracts, is not as useful in isolation, as when other information about the adversary (for example, motive and means) or context (e.g., targeting of specific vertical industries or business processes) can be applied.”
The IntSights Enterprise Threat Intelligence & Mitigation Platform utilizes unique cyber reconnaissance capabilities and patented data-mining algorithms to continuously scan the surface, deep and dark web to deliver actionable, contextual reconnaissance about potential threats targeting a customers’ particular industry, their operational assets and processes, employees, and digital footprint.
This tailored intelligence, including adversary motive and means, analyzed alongside internal IOCs, community, and open source threat feeds, provides customers a highly customized and comprehensive picture of the risks threatening their business and brand. Armed with this actionable intelligence, customers can then utilize IntSights automated remediation functionality to orchestrate workflows and update firewalls, proxies, SIEMs and NGAV solutions to more efficiently and effectively eliminate operational vulnerabilities, secure data, and protect resources.
“As the cybercrime ecosystem evolves, cyber attacks are becoming more complex, creative, and tailored to the industries and organizations they target. To do this, attackers must research, prepare and seek out information on their targets prior to an attack,” said Alon Arvatz, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at IntSights Cyber Intelligence. “Today, the cybersecurity community focuses a great deal on technical elements and indicators of malicious activity to detect threats – and has thus invested heavily in technologically driven solutions. We believe there is much to be gained from investigating the human factor behind attacks and that in doing so it is possible to uncover actionable warning signs much earlier in the cyber attack chain and to then automate proactive defense to eliminate risk.”
The IntSights Enterprise Threat Intelligence and Mitigation Platform is comprised of four innovative and integrated modules including: Tailored Intelligence, IOC Enrichment & Management (TIP), Automated Remediation, and Threat Research & Analysis. Each module delivers unique capabilities and features that allow enterprises to operationalize threat intelligence not possible with existing, disparate tools.
They partner with organizations to boost their cybersecurity and remediate their cyberthreats. This is achieved through a subscription-based service which: Infiltrates the cyberthreat underworld to detect and analyze planned or potential attacks and threats that are specific to their partners. Provides advance warning and customized insight concerning potential cyber attacks, including recommended steps to avoid or withstand the attacks. Delivers in-depth analysis of cyberthreats originating from in-house sources, third-party sources or threat actors.IntSights is backed by Glilot Capital Partners, Blumberg Capital, Blackstone and Wipro Ventures.
