Boston, MA, February 13, 2017 — Recorded Future, the threat intelligence company, today expanded its threat intelligence solution to give threat intelligence analysts and security operations centers access to an unrivaled breadth of technical, open, and dark web sources in a unified solution. The company will demonstrate the power of all-source analysis at RSA Conference 2017 in San Francisco this week (Booth S315).

Manually turning data on cyber attacks, vulnerabilities, and exploits into actionable threat intelligence requires significant investment of time and resources. Recorded Future’s patented Web Intelligence Engine automatically collects data and conducts deep analysis from the broadest set of sources from the open, deep, and dark web, as well as threat feeds, technical collection, and security reporting. Using machine learning and natural language processing, these billions of data points are extracted and organized to filter noise to help businesses surface emerging threats up to 10 times faster. This is why 86 percent of the Fortune 100 trust Recorded Future.

For the first time, Recorded Future is bringing all three types of sources into one unified solution, connecting the dots to reveal true threats. Now businesses will have access to insights collected and analyzed from the following sources, giving them the most complete view into their threat landscape, delivered in a digestible way that is customized to the threats relevant to them:  

·         Technical sources include indicators of compromise from malware infrastructure and files, vulnerabilities, phishing campaigns, infections, and web infrastructure.

·         Open sources are extracted by mining the open web like Google, Facebook, Twitter, paste sites, and code repositories for references and content connected to cyber threats.

·         Closed or dark web sources come fromdifficult-to-access closed forums and marketplaces, including TOR sites on the dark web, criminal forums, and top “special-access” forums carried out by Recorded Future’s experienced threat analysts.

“To reduce the risk of attacks, defenders need intelligence from the widest range of sources in the shortest amount of time. The speed and scale required to achieve this are beyond human capacity alone. Our Web Intelligence Engine analyzes and automatically connects the dots across the broadest set of sources to put businesses in a much better position to defend against threats.”

— Dr. Christopher Ahlberg, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder at Recorded Future

“All-source threat intelligence programs synthesize a wide range of threat intelligence sources and help organizations speed time to incident detection and time to incident response while streamlining overall security operations. This is the exact mission of Recorded Future.”

—Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group

“We don’t have to go and look into multiple different sources across the web. Recorded Future pulls all that intelligence into a single place for us to go in and view, which saves us a significant amount of time. We are able to turn information into intelligence using Recorded Future, and this enables our business to make more informed decisions.”

— Paul McEvatt MBCS, Senior Cyber Threat Intelligence Manager and Fujitsu Distinguished Engineer at Fujitsu UK and Ireland
