Milestone: Business Risk Intelligence Innovation Powers Global Partner Programs

Josh Lefkowitz

A powerful sign of success for a company is forging a robust ecosystem of partners. For one, it shows that company has scaled to the point of offering its solutions to a far larger network than it can reach on its own. And second, it is extremely validating when some of the top companies in the industry want to partner with a company to grow their own businesses.

Reaching this milestone is why I am extremely pleased to write about two hugely transformational programs for Flashpoint: our Strategic Partner Network and Global Channel Program. These programs will empower our technical partners, value-added resellers, and distributors to provide their customers with a decision advantage over threats and adversaries through the delivery of Business Risk Intelligence (BRI).

Our Strategic Partner Network is powered by the newest innovation from our world-class engineering and R&D teams: Flashpoint API v4.

Designed to make BRI more customizable and accessible within an organization’s systems and technologies, API v4 facilitates the seamless integration of Finished Intelligence, Deep & Dark Web data, and a new dataset: Risk Intelligence Observables (RIOs). RIOs consist of high-fidelity technical indicators with additional context that offer a BRI program deeper insights into activities extending beyond traditional indicator-centric datasets.

Unique data like RIOs and the extensibility of API v4 empower Strategic Partner Network members to create custom integrations for their platforms to enrich analysis for their customers. Partners currently integrating API v4 include Anomali, Silobreaker, ThreatConnect and ThreatQuotient. By delivering unmatched visibility into threats, these integrations enable our Strategic Partner Network to empower experienced and entry-level users alike with the context they need to make better decisions about risks posed by cybercrime, fraud, and other physical and cyber threats relevant to them.

I’d like to personally thank the teams at Anomali, Silobreaker, ThreatConnect, and ThreatQuotient for their collaboration and unwavering support in these partnerships.

Indeed, these trusted partnerships have long supported our efforts to grow the global footprint of BRI, which we’ve already done this year with expansion into Europe and Asia Pacific. As we work to meet the growing global demand for BRI, working with partners can help continue to accelerate growth and drive BRI adoption. This is why I’m also so excited about our Global Channel Program.

Designed to help Flashpoint cultivate and strengthen even more partnerships worldwide, this program builds upon the already-robust group of 50 partners that have chosen our human-powered analysis and sophisticated technology to help their customers mitigate risk. The program, built on the tenets of commitment, collaboration, and excellence, provides value-added resellers and distributors with technical and sales support, incentive plans and margin protection, a new Partner Portal and updated Deal Registration processes. In short, we are very appreciative of our partners and proud of how we’ve grown together. Providing more support to them will only help everyone involved — including our joint customers. I am so grateful for all of our partners, and I’d like to especially thank Consortium Networks, Spire Solutions, and WavePort for supporting this announcement.

Flashpoint has always been unique in how we mix our innovative technology and our human-powered analysis. Now, with our Strategic Partner Network and Global Channel Program, we are even better poised to support private and public sector organizations worldwide with BRI.
