• A leading proponent for sharing threat intelligence across industry verticals, ThreatQuotient joins prominent financial services organisation to ensure the protection of critical financial systems
Reading, UK - 18th May 2016 — ThreatQuotient, a threat intelligence platform provider, today demonstrated its continued commitment to offering highly innovative threat intelligence solutions to the financial services industry by joining the FS-ISAC Affiliate Program. The program is designed to bring together strategic partners that desire to promote the mission of FS-ISAC and help protect the financial services industry. Working with FS-ISAC as an Affiliate Program member enables ThreatQuotient to be more responsive to the security needs of the financial sector.
"FS-ISAC Affiliates are an important part of the cyber security ecosystem. ThreatQuotient helps support the mission of the FS-ISAC via a contribution of high level educational content and knowledge of the cybersecurity issues that face our industry daily," said Robin Fantin, SVP Marketing, FS-ISAC.
Dedicated to revolutionising cyber defence capabilities through innovative threat intelligence solutions, ThreatQuotient understands the importance of strategic partnerships and supporting leading industry associations like FS-ISAC. The company’s Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), ThreatQ, is designed with this vendor agnostic approach in mind and centrally manages and correlates unlimited external sources with all internal security and analytics solutions for contextual, operationalised intelligence in a single view. This enables threat intelligence teams to return their focus to analysis, and improve their security operations by reducing the amount of effort traditionally exerted into combining data sources.
“While financial services have played a large role in leading the charge for a holistic approach to security, they remain a significant focus for today’s cyber criminals,” said John Czupak, President and CEO at ThreatQuotient. “Having an influential organisation like FS-ISAC bring quality vendors together to address cyber security issues is paramount if we are going to effectively turn the tides in favour of the enterprises rather than the criminals. We are pleased to announce our increased participation with FS-ISAC and welcome the opportunity to support their mission as a contributing member.”
ThreatQuotient integrates with over 25 vendors to ensure customers can keep their detection solutions up to date. This strategic collaboration has resulted in the build out of over 100 feeds ranging from open source blacklists to commercial providers and several private communities. Organisations spend a significant amount of annual budget and manpower on existing security technologies to detect and block attacks; ThreatQuotient focuses on ensuring organisations leverage those deployments more efficiently. Becoming a member of the FS-ISAC Affiliate Program, a recognised leader when it comes to addressing critical security threats facing the global financial services sector, further enhances ThreatQuotient’s resources to enable customers to stay protected and maximise their investments.
