We've invested heavily over the past seven years, built an awesome global team of experts, developed a best of breed threat intelligence technology platform and set an extremely high bar for other vendors entering the space to clear."

In the first half of 2014, iSIGHT Partners made international headlines with the disclosure of two major cyber threats. It provided details on the point of sale malware used in attacks against retailers in the United States (dubbed KAPTOXA), and disclosed a multiyear cyber espionage campaign tied to Iran that utilized social media to target governments - including members of the U.S. Congress, members of the U.S./Israeli lobby and leading organizations in the defense industrial sector in the United States, United Kingdom and Israel (dubbed NEWSCASTER).

This year, the company forged a strategic OEM partnership with Check Point Software (News - Alert) Technologies. This partnership offers Check Point customers unmatched access to iSIGHT Partners' context-rich intelligence for their Check Point security gateways. Unlike less developed offerings from vendors with limited track records in the intelligence arena, iSIGHT Partners' integration with Check Point's ThreatCloud IntelliStore provides customers with actionable intelligence, enabling them to proactively and confidently block attacks at the gateway and gain deep, context-rich and real-time insight about the threats they are facing.
