RiskIQ Adds Who and Why Threat Intelligence from Intel 471 to PassiveTotal Security Analysis Platform

Integration Allows Analysts to Link Adversary Profiles with their Attack Infrastructures to Preempt Threats

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12, 2016 -- RiskIQ, the leading security company defending organizations from threats outside the firewall, today announced that its PassiveTotal threat infrastructure analysis product now includes the Intel 471’s actor-centric cyber threat intelligence service. This integration allows security analysts to combine Intel 471 attacker profile information (tools, techniques and motivations) with malicious infrastructure data sets (IPs, domains, etc.) within PassiveTotal to identify threats in the planning stages.

“Detecting threats before they are carried out by adversaries is the ultimate goal of any security intelligence program,” said Elias Manousos, CEO of RiskIQ. “The addition of ‘Who’ and ‘What’ data from Intel 471 within the PassiveTotal platform now enables analysts to connect malicious actors, their upcoming campaigns and attack infrastructures -- to shutdown threats before they can reach the target organization.”

 

360 View of Actors and Threats

To provide a comprehensive view of threats, PassiveTotal can now supplement infrastructure intelligence including DNS, WHOIS records and SSL Certificates with data on adversaries gathered by Intel 471 from underground forums and other closed sources. When investigating a suspected malicious domain within PassiveTotal, this integration allows analysts to see individuals that are linked to the resource and their activity on the Dark Web.

“Partnering with RiskIQ and PassiveTotal is a big step for us as it enables our joint customers to understand threat actors, where they come from and the infrastructure they use,” said Mark Arena, CEO of Intel 471. “This holistic view of the threat fuses the incident-centric and actor-centric approaches to cyber threat intelligence.”

In a recent investigation, a malicious domain searched within PassiveTotal produced several Intel 471 reports which revealed that an adversary associated with it was involved in developing the Cerebrus point of sale (POS) malware and was looking for help to infect retail devices. With all the domain and threat actor activity information, including the details of each Intel 471 report, contained in a unified view, security analysts can instantly discover an adversary’s digital footprint as well as their active and even upcoming campaigns.

 

Availability

PassiveTotal with Intel 471 integration is available immediately to all Intel 471 customers.
