Cyber Squared Inc. Announces Expansion of Data Services with Powerful Domain and Passive DNS Intelligence
ARLINGTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Squared Inc. announced today that ThreatConnect™,
the leading threat intelligence platform, has entered into a partnership
with DomainTools and Farsight Security, Inc. to provide ThreatConnect
users with the industry's most powerful domain and passive DNS
Using DomainTools' branded Reverse Whois and Registrant Alert services
in ThreatConnect's Track feature, ThreatConnect customers are
able to research malicious domain registrants from the industry's
longest running and most comprehensive searchable database of domain
name registration and hosting data. With Farsight Security's passive DNS
(pDNS), the de-facto market-leading source for commercial pDNS data,
analysts can pivot within ThreatConnect to discover new network
indicators related to the threats they are most concerned about,
providing custom context and the most relevant threat intelligence data.
DomainTools and Farsight Security data services together within
ThreatConnect offer users the best DNS based threat intelligence
capability on the market.
"We are continuing to expand our data services and to build an
integrated platform for threat intelligence that is relevant to our
customers," said Cyber Squared CEO Adam Vincent. "Our customers are the
biggest organizations out there, and they need an enterprise-level,
best-in-class solution to get the most accurate and up-to-date
information on Whois, DNS, and pDNS data. Whether they are investigating
malware, a spear-phishing incident, DDOS, or another kind of theft or
fraud, ThreatConnect is made stronger through partnerships with services
from such leading organizations as DomainTools and Farsight Security."
ThreatConnect enables analysts to engage in predictive network defense
by allowing them to grow their knowledge of threats, discover new
indicators, and make associations to adversaries that pose a risk to
their networks. A platform such as ThreatConnect allows users to
aggregate their data, then analyze it using crowd-sourced intelligence
coupled with the ability to search through resources like Farsight
Security's DNSDB and DomainTools' Reverse Whois and Registrant Alert
services, resulting in an extremely powerful platform with capabilities
no other company is offering today.
"We're pleased to work with ThreatConnect, and deliver our data services
to make their platform even stronger," said DomainTools VP of Marketing
& Product Jeff Day. "We are committed to providing the most
comprehensive domain name and DNS research and monitoring tools
worldwide, and working with ThreatConnect's global customer base means
reaching many more people."
"Pasive DNS data has become a must-have for comprehensive DNS research
and effective network security forensics," said Bert Lathrop, Chief
Operating Officer of Farsight Security, Inc. "We know that the most
sophisticated and mature organizations are using our data to assess
network-counterparty configuration history and associated risk, and to
amplify the value of their threat intelligence data. Working with
ThreatConnect means that over 2,000 global users are now able to take
advantage of our services."
DomainTools data is immediately available to ThreatConnect subscribers
through the Track feature. Farsight Security's pDNS service is
available in Beta now and will be available to all ThreatConnect
subscribers in mid-Q2. Results from both DomainTools Reverse Whois and
Registrant Alerts as well as Farsight Security pDNS are available to be
chosen as Indicators and associated with tracked Threats
or Adversaries within ThreatConnect.
