TORONTO – October 20, 2015 – BrandProtect™ will unveil threatSMART™, the latest generation of the company’s comprehensive suite of powerful enterprise cyber security services, at next week’s Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) Summit, which is being held October 25-28 in Coronado, California.
threatSMART combines comprehensive, automated external cyber threat monitoring, advanced analysis by the BrandProtect team of military-grade threat analysts, industry-leading mitigation from its Rapid Response Team, powerful new reporting, and numerous other usability and performance improvements like multi-language support. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of the most security-centric enterprises, including financial institutions, insurers, healthcare providers and global media companies.
threatSMART delivers unique cyber incident correlation capabilities, enabling enterprises to compare and connect threat data captured within individual cyberattacks with other incidents. By automatically developing a data trail for each incident, and then identifying common attributes across multiple events, BrandProtect is able to quickly identify the related events, threat vectors and attackers who represent the greatest risk.
“Because today’s threats are becoming more complex, intelligently monitoring and connecting threat channels is increasingly important,” said Roberto Drassinower, CEO, BrandProtect. “From phishing sites to masquerading social domains, cyber criminals are growing bolder and deploying more sophisticated schemes to steal personally identifiable information (PII) from unsuspecting end users. This builds the foundations for social engineering attacks that could eventually evolve into large-scale data breaches.”
To better analyze and get a handle on threats in the making, threatSMART provides security teams with a simple, secure Incident Window for direct access to current and historical threat data and reports. Through extensive enterprise APIs and STIX/TAXII support, threatSMART connects data directly from its system to others including HP ArcSight, Splunk and many more.
Sample service configurations include cyber threat monitoring for executives, physical events, domains and other trademarks, as well as insider threats, auction fraud, brand abuse, mobile app schemes, phishing activity and social domain schemes. Optional Dark Web monitoring provides even deeper intelligence far beyond the visible web about incidents, exposures and threat actors.
“By our estimates, the cyber threat universe has grown more than 50 percent year-over-year,” continued Drassinower. “As the enterprise attack surface continues to extend far beyond the traditional security perimeter, BrandProtect is taking a big step forward in helping our clients avoid devastating cyber incidents. threatSMART provides the advanced multi-channel, multi-language threat detection and advanced data correlation they need to connect the dots for more effective risk mitigation.”
