Solutionary Launches Targeted Threat Intelligence Service to Increase Situational Awareness and Mitigate Attacks for Enterprises

Dedicated Threat Advisors Provide Advance, Actionable Threat Intelligence on Cyberattacks Targeting Specific Industries, Organizations and Executives

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2015) - Solutionary, an NTT Group security company (NYSE: NTT) and the next-generation managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced its new Targeted Threat Intelligence service, delivered by the Solutionary Security Engineering Research Team (SERT). The Solutionary Targeted Threat Intelligence service is designed to provide advance, actionable intelligence to clients by analyzing data from more than 600,000 unique threat sources in order to improve situational awareness and identify targeted threats against the enterprise network and key executives. The new Solutionary service employs SERT threat advisors to analyze and exploit information, converting it into enriched, actionable, risk-based threat intelligence for each client.

In order to deal with the global nature of security threats, SERT has multilingual analysts and pulls data from information sources in more than seven languages. SERT threat advisors look for signs that sensitive client data, credentials or intellectual property have been exposed on the Internet. These are signs a breach may have occurred and mitigation actions are needed. By proactively seeking this type of information, Solutionary is able to help clients react quickly and limit the impact of targeted attacks. In addition, by offering increased situational awareness and advance notice, SERT threat advisors can make recommendations for defending against potential attacks before they are manifested.

"Malicious actors are increasingly targeting specific industries, organizations and even individuals," said Rob Kraus, director of research, Solutionary SERT. "The Solutionary Targeted Threat Intelligence service helps enterprises increase situational awareness and potentially avoid attacks altogether by providing advance notice and actionable threat intelligence for risk mitigation to avoid impact to their business or key personnel, enabling them to protect brand equity and their customers."

When the Targeted Threat Intelligence service is combined with Solutionary Security Log Monitoring, Solutionary engineers are able to develop custom signatures to detect targeted attacks and, with Solutionary Security Device Management, defend against attacks as well. SERT threat advisors gather information from open-source intelligence, the Dark Web, threat-intelligence feeds, Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs), niche intelligence groups, proprietary sources and attack data gleaned from the ActiveGuard® Security Analytics platform.

Targeted Threat Intelligence is available in two service tiers tailored for each individual client. The first tier, Basic Targeted Threat Intelligence, provides threat intelligence alerts and reports. SERT threat advisors work with clients to understand their environment, their industry and their specific needs to establish a baseline. Clients receive client-specific Emerging Threat Advisories, vertical-market landscape analysis and reporting.

The second tier, Managed Targeted Threat Intelligence, provides a dedicated threat advisor who partners with the client's internal team, acting as an extension of the team. Clients are able to interact directly with their dedicated SERT Threat Advisor on a regular basis and are provided with quarterly executive threat briefings, advance access to SERT research, executive monitoring, threat-actor dossiers and vendor monitoring. Solutionary also provides Structured Threat Information Expression (STIX™) packages to clients for specific threats.

Additional Threat Intelligence Service Features Include:

  • Comprehensive, client-specific views of threats
  • Views of existing target profiles and exposed data
  • Actionable intelligence specific to individual organizations
  • IP reputation monitoring
  • Integration with ActiveGuard detection
  • Access to experienced SERT threat advisors
