ThreatQ enables Sopra Steria to anticipate threats through a new SOC based on intelligence management

London, UK, 25th January 2017– ThreatQuotient™, a trusted threat intelligence platform innovator is pleased to announce its partnership with Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation and well-known in the cybersecurity space.

Sopra Steria’s rationale behind the partnership is to bring a global solution with advanced services focused on intelligence and threat management to its customers so that they can move away from a reactive response to threat to a more move a more predictive way of operating. Sopra Steria has equipped its SOC (Security Operations Centre) with the ThreatQ platform which will become the cornerstone of it security operations.

Organisations continue to be targets or victims of cyber threats. Attacks tripled in 2016 from one every two minutes to one every 40 seconds. Confronted with growing cybercrime and the reality of regulatory pressure, cybersecurity has become a requirement for organisations. To stay competitive, companies must speed up their digital transformation, while guaranteeing that their information assets are protected, in particular via an efficient security incidents detection system. This means the new generation of SOC must be : adaptive, cognitive and predictive.

Partnership for Threat Intelligence management
Sopra Steria has chosen ThreatQuotient™, for its real-time intelligence organisation and management strategy, which will be one of the keys for running a successful SOC. The continuous growth and complexity of threats require fast action and, more importantly, a switch to a new era of anticipation by combining technological, economic and geopolitical information. This new approach will benefit external sources of threat intelligences and feeds and share anonymised information with customers.

Antonin Hily, MSSP Director at Sopra Steria comments on the announcement, “The ThreatQ platform is the driving force behind of our threat operations. Its Threat Library and workbench are key capabilities our SOC analysts and other security tools use to identify what adversaries are involved on a given detected attack. Our day to day SOC activities are heavily focused on enriching the Intelligence attached to our customer’s adversaries to provide our customers with a full understanding of the risk mitigated by our service.”

“A Threat Intelligence Platform helps C-Level executives to integrate Security Operations feedback into their risk analysis and strategic planning activities.” comments Anthony Perridge, Regional Director for ThreatQuotient™. “Companies need more and more Intelligence driven services like the Threat Intelligence Platform. I strongly believe that classical Managed SOC offers will disappear in the near future and will be replaced by Intelligence Driven SOC offers focused on threat defence and fighting adversaries.”
