With the mandate to deliver innovative and effective technologies and solutions to address cyber security challenges, the company offers an array of products to its wide range of clientele.
Providing a sense of security to the clientele
The ThreatStream Optic threat intelligence platform makes sense of all of the threat data that security teams have to sort through to find the needle(s) in the haystack that can threaten clients business, customers, intellectual property, and reputation.
Right “out-of-the-box”, ThreatStream Optic is already integrated with many of the most widely-used security products. Using the ThreatStream Optic Link to connect their platform to clients security infrastructure gives them the ability to start understanding the most urgent risks to business in minutes. ThreatStream Optic also enables users to more easily share threat intelligence by supporting trusted community creation, collaboration and analysis. With the press of a button, ThreatStream Optic users can share threat intelligence in real-time with trusted peers or within any circles of trust they’ve created.
The ThreatStream Alliance Preferred Partners (APP) Store is built into the ThreatStream Optic platform. Featuring some of the most popular commercial intelligence feeds, the APP Store makes it easy for ThreatStream Optic users to purchase the additional threat feeds they need with the click of a button.
The STIX/TAXII standards for describing and exchanging cyber threat information have been widely endorsed and adopted by both public and private sector organizations. Many of the Information Sharing and Analysis Centers – or ISACs – such as the Financial Services ISAC (FS-ISAC), rely on a STIX/TAXII repository to facilitate threat information sharing across the many members of their trusted communities. Until now the process to consume and use this critical threat information has been manual and error-prone. ThreatStream Integrator automates this process.
ThreatStream Integrator can connect to any STIX/TAXII server in the cloud (for example, http://hailataxii.com or a server hosted by an ISAC), or on premise, and pull threat information from it into existing security solutions – including HP ArcSight ESM and Splunk – in a format appropriate for that solution. An instance of ThreatStream Integrator can retrieve threat information from multiple sources and forward it to multiple destinations in an organization’s infrastructure. Integrator’s easy-to-use, interactive dashboards enable threat intelligence visualization, deeper analysis, and advanced searches.
Modern Honey Net (MHN)
While honeypot software is fairly mature and can provide high quality threat intelligence for organizations, they have never received wide adoption. From the secure deployment to the aggregation of thousands of events MHN provides enterprise grade management of the most current open source honeypot software. MHN is completely free open source software which supports external and internal honeypot deployments at a large and distributed scale. MHN uses the HPFeeds standard and low-interaction honeypots to keep effectiveness and security at enterprise grade levels. MHN provides full REST API out of the box and they are making CEF and STIX support available now for direct SIEM integration through our Commercial platform Optic.
Understanding the value of Threat Intelligence
The company very well understands the value and importance of investment in threat intelligence which is fast becoming a necessity that organizations are taking seriously. The value of threat intelligence is realized every time.
