According to the joint offering, Cytegic will incorporate Sixgill Darknet sources as part of the Cytegic Dynamic Trend Analysis (DyTA™ ) intelligence product to significantly enhance the intelligence provided to customers.
"Understanding the threat landscape is paramount to proper risk assessment," says Shay Zandani, CEO, Cytegic. "But to make effective use of real intelligence, customers need reliable and quantifiable data. Today, threat intelligence needs to be based on a 'big data analytics' approach, where numerous sources are monitored, processed and analyzed to identify trends and activity patterns. By integrating Sixgill's Darknet feeds into our DyTA platform, we can deliver the most comprehensive threat landscape analysis product available on the market today."
"We think customers will benefit significantly from the integration of Sixgill cybersecurity technology into the Cytegic DyTA," says Avi Kasztan, CEO, Sixgill. "Customers will be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive product that derives meaningful threat intelligence from so many sources. The Sixgill Darknet Intelligence System is a fully automatic product that identifies, and prioritizes actual threats in real-time, before these threats cause damage to the organization."
