Partnership Combines iSIGHT Partners’ Rich, Contextual Cyber Threat Intelligence with Co3 Systems’ Best-in-class Incident Response Platform to Provide Organizations with Automated, Intelligence-led Incidence Response Capabilities
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — July 31, 2013 — Co3 Systems, the leader in Security Incident Response software, and iSIGHT Partners, the leader in global cyber threat intelligence, announced a global technology partnership to improve cyber incident response by integrating actionable threat intelligence.
Co3’s Security Module now delivers analytical information based on iSIGHT Partners’ comprehensive intelligence, offering detailed knowledge regarding attacks, linking observables to methodologies, campaigns, and origins. Because of the partnership, IT security teams using Co3 gain access to iSIGHT Partners’ contextual data to enable correlation of real-time, external threats to critical assets within the organization. Co3 customers simply associate incident artifacts—like a malware hash or the source IP address of an attack—and the system automatically searches iSIGHT Partners’ extensive holdings and connects to related threat intelligence. As a result, organizations instantly receive the precise insight they need to better understand the incident they are facing and inform a quicker and more decisive response.
In order to provide its clients with threat models and threat intelligence, Co3 needed to partner with a company that had a deep understanding of who the attackers are, what they are attacking, and the methodologies they are utilizing. With more than 190 employees across 16 countries speaking 24 different languages, iSIGHT Partners delivers unsurpassed threat intelligence on a global level.
“Cyber threats are increasing faster than incident responders are able to meet them,” said iSIGHT Partners CEO John Watters. “More flashing lights warning them of more attacks is not the answer. Intelligence that clearly articulates who the perpetrators are, their motives, and their methodologies so you can adapt your defense is the answer.”
Co3’s security module transforms incident response from a manual, chaotic, and stressful process to one that is efficient, compliant, and best-of-breed. Co3 provides instantly generated, detailed, incident response plans that provide information essential to incidence response.
“Actionable intelligence is vital to incident response teams,” said John Bruce, CEO at Co3 Systems. “With this iSIGHT Partners integration, our clients now have an intelligence-led security model, automatically correlating intelligence with the incidents they are facing and translating that into immediate response.”
iSIGHT Partners’ cyber threat intelligence products have transformed the cyber security industry by providing deep intelligence to the most challenging and often most overlooked phase of security: adversarial and motivational context. Without understanding context, it’s often difficult for cyber security teams to prioritize their attention, budget, and personnel in the face of advanced threats and open vulnerabilities.
