Security Alliance provides users with new threat intelligence platform

Security Alliance launched its cyber threat intelligence platform ThreatMatch at the official opening of the UK Cyber Demonstration Centre.

ThreatMatch is a cyber threat intelligence platform that provides continuous alerts on how an organisation’s attack surface correlates with the threat posed by the malicious actors targeting it, using a diverse and extensive range of sources.

John Beale, founder of Security Alliance, said: “We were delighted to be invited to launch ThreatMatch at the official opening of the UK Cyber Demonstration Centre.

“Organisations now operate on a global stage whether they choose to or not. Those who would not ordinarily seem a target for foreign governments, advanced threat actors, organised crime groups, hackers or hacktivist, are finding themselves part of a much larger event than they would have envisaged.

“Traditional security programmes that seek to simply build bigger walls don’t work. Cyber security threats are also not a static risk. The motivations and capabilities of threat actors continuously evolve, and your resilience depends on the continuous acquisition and actioning of accurate cyber threat intelligence.

“Staying secure now requires persistent and accurate understanding of your cyber threat landscape to better inform your security strategy. The key is timely intelligence that enables better risk management and incident response decisions, forearming defensive teams of imminent threats and developing comprehensive cyber resiliency exercises.”

ThreatMatch functionality includes:

  • Threat alerting
  • Information and intelligence on adversaries, malware and operations
  • Threat actor profiles including Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP)
  • Industry, sector and global situational awareness
  • Social media monitoring
  • Vulnerability and exploit alerts
  • Aggregated and customised news streams

Beale also noted ThreatMatch has been developed with a number of international customers through cyber intelligence services, to develop a platform to enable collaboration and deliver intelligence in the most “usable and consumable” manner.
