These partnerships help threat analysts and organizations further
understand the threats coming after them, and extend the capabilities of
their existing products' analytics. ThreatConnect users take advantage
of the multi-sourced data within ThreatConnect to push threat indicators
and context to the partner integrated products. With the ThreatConnect
partner program, organizations take the next step to not only analyze
complex data, but defend and act on that knowledge against threats.
"Through these strategic partnerships, we are empowering our users to
immediately act on the valuable data out of ThreatConnect," said CEO
Adam Vincent. "We are making existing cyber defense products smarter,
supporting the ability to integrate intelligence into defense or
visibility, then feed that new-found intelligence back into
The initial integrations represent a broad range of defensive
capabilities including IPS/IDS, continuous monitoring and vulnerability
management, breach detection and incident response from partners
including Sourcefire, Tenable Network Security, General Dynamics (News - Alert) Fidelis
Cybersecurity Solutions and Carbon Black. The partner
program relies on the ThreatConnect™
API and custom export features to power the integrations.
ThreatConnect supports the ability to deliver a package of threat
intelligence around an incident or series of incidents, using
information in Snort rules files. More context is provided with this
integration, allowing users to get a better picture of incoming threats.
Continuous Monitoring and Vulnerability Management
We enable Tenable users to put the power of ThreatConnect's intelligence
into Tenable's continuous monitoring solutions. By enabling easy import
of threat indicators into Nessus® and Security Center with references
back to ThreatConnect for context, Tenable users can quickly determine
the deeper meaning of threats detected on their networks.
Indicator management is simplified with ThreatConnect and General
Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions' Fidelis XPS™ advanced threat
defense solution. Users who are fielding multiple IP addresses and new
threat indicators within ThreatConnect can now feed that intelligence
into Fidelis XPS and proactively detect and shoot down those indicators.
The analysis and context coming from ThreatConnect is used to engage and
defend against the threat before it strikes.
Carbon Black customers have the ability to crowdsource indicators
directly from Carbon Black, work with the Carbon Black community to get
feedback, and dig deeper with real-time data from ThreatConnect.
"Carbon Black is really pushing the envelope of integration with
ThreatConnect," continued Vincent. "They are interacting with our data
in a whole new way. The Carbon Black and ThreatConnect community is
integrated using our ThreatConnect™ API and allows Carbon Black
customers to work together within the Carbon Black product, gain more
comprehensive knowledge through ThreatConnect, and ultimately leverage
their shared intelligence to take action in defending against threats."
