TACOMA, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2015) - IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced SenseCy, a provider of human-validated cyberthreat intelligence, will be contributing into IID's big data solution for Internet security -- ActiveTrust. SenseCy's threat intelligence will be available as premium data to ActiveTrust customers -- meaning it will be viewable in the ActiveTrust dashboard and can be input into any organization's cybersecurity infrastructure as easily as IID's own data.
"Cyberthreat data is abundant, much like conventional crime. But being in the relevant places, performing the secret handshakes and understanding how to use that information is crucial. It enables us to turn that information into valuable technical intelligence and action items that can be incorporated into security systems," said Dimitry Shvartsman, Director of technical intelligence at SenseCy. "We're excited to add our intelligence data to the ActiveTrust platform in order to assist businesses improve their security posture."
SenseCy is a cyber intelligence company that uses Virtual HUMINT methodology to prepare and protect clients from cyber incidents. By engaging with the adversaries on their own turf, SenseCy learns the who, what and how of the next breach. SenseCy will contribute the latest cyberthreat indicator data that their analysts gather from cyber adversaries into ActiveTrust.
"SenseCy acquires threat data items that highly automated systems are unable to by leveraging 'undercover agent' techniques," said Lars Harvey, CEO at IID. "We're looking forward to giving our customers access to this unique threat data."
Just last week, IID announced that Emerging Threats -- newly acquired by Proofpoint, Inc. -- will provide the latest malware, Internet Protocol address and domain reputation data, and cyberthreat response recommendations to ActiveTrust customers as premium data. ActiveTrust adds clarity to cyberthreat intelligence by distilling threat data from thousands of trusted sources, and fusing it into actionable intelligence delivered to security professionals and automated infrastructure. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies leverage ActiveTrust data to detect and mitigate threats, making it one of the world's largest commercial cyberthreat data exchanges.
