ThreatQuotient Launches Threat Intelligence Management Platform

ThreatQuotient this week announced the general availability of ThreatQ, the company’s threat intelligence platform designed to manage and correlate threat data from external sources with internal security and analytics solutions.

ThreatQ is an on-premise, vendor-agnostic platform meant to help organizations reduce the time required to identify and mitigate threats by improving their threat intelligence and security operations through the import of commercial, open source, and industry threat intelligence.

Aimed at both large and small enterprises, the platform has been designed to offer integration with existing security solutions and aims at leveraging indicators and better converting data sources into operational decisions.

Alongside ThreatQ, ThreatQuotient introduced Indicator Nurturing, a feature meant to help customers tailor indicators of compromise (IOCs) relevant to their infrastructure and deploy them into security solutions faster.

According to the company, the solution is extensible, includes a flexible scoring engine and reporting capabilities to create visualizations of correlated data, and, because it works as a dynamic repository, can act as a search engine for threat intelligence.

The platform eliminates the need for a security analyst to go through an entire pool of data to identify a threat by automating the process and suggesting sources of data that are more relevant to a given company.

In addition to helping security teams streamline the lifecycle of threat analysis and mitigation, ThreatQ can be used for the mapping of adversary names across multiple sources, enabling organizations to build internal adversary timelines and to provide their employees with situational awareness details, the company said.

“In order for organizations to best secure their infrastructures and have a robust threat intelligence program, their threat intelligence platforms must be scalable, extensible and truly capable of operationalizing both disparate threat intelligence and security system data within a single view,” said Ryan Trost, CIO and co-founder of Sterling, Virginia-based ThreatQuotient.

Founded in 2013 by Wayne Chiang and Ryan Trost, who previously worked at a Security Operations Center of defense contractor General Dynamics, ThreatQuotient managed to raise $1.5 million in a seed round of funding in April this year.
