Business Risk Intelligence: Shaping the Future of Enterprise Protection

BRI
November 15, 2016

It’s been an incredible, evolutionary year for Flashpoint. We achieved a record Q3 2016, raised $10 million in new capital, and attracted some of the industry’s top talent for both our subject matter expert and executive teams. Our customer satisfaction is also consistently high, which has helped us to achieve broad industry recognition for our Business Risk Intelligence (BRI) derived from the Deep & Dark Web.

In fact, yesterday Flashpoint was named an SC Award U.S. 2017 finalist for its Best Emerging Technology — the only intelligence vendor to make the cut. What’s most fitting about this Excellence Award category is its description. The magazine states:

This category welcomes both new vendors and old pros looking to provide products and services that look to help shape the future by addressing fast-evolving threats through the creation of these types of offerings.

Flashpoint strives to shape the future by helping organizations adopt security approaches that are more sophisticated and effective than cyber threat intelligence. BRI delivers intelligence across the enterprise to empower these organizations to more accurately evaluate relevant threats in a way that helps all business functions make more informed decisions and mitigate risk. Aside from bolstering cybersecurity, BRI also helps confront fraud, detect insider threats, enhance physical security, assess M&A opportunities, and address vendor risk and supply chain integrity.

While we are honored to be listed as a finalist in the SC Awards, this recognition is not the only supporting point that shows we truly help our customers and continue to “shape the future”:

In a statement released right after its major outage, Dyn credited Flashpoint, as well as Akamai, for confirming the source of traffic for their attacks as devices infected by the Mirai botnet. Our researchers conduct further analysis of Mirai for our customers.

• Our own Vitali Kremez, senior intelligence analyst, was selected to present tomorrow at the NH-ISAC Fall Summit with Aetna’s Chief Security Officer Jim Routh and SecureWorks’ Joe Stewart on an expert panel to examine how the underground market for personally identifiable information is shifting trends in healthcare fraud.

• We can proudly say we are now supporting customers in 13 verticals worldwide, which reflects organizations’ acute need for BRI.

We remain dedicated to the adoption, growth and success of our customers and partners. Flashpoint’s unmatched specialization in BRI derived from the Deep & Dark Web is what truly distinguishes us. While other vendors may assess incidents on the open web, our experts know that those incidents often signal far more noteworthy activity beneath the surface on the Dark & Deep Web, and the collection activity required to provide customers with this intelligence requires entering communities alongside malicious actors. This is dangerous for our customers to do on their own, as it requires tradecraft knowledge and experience in both HUMINT and technical matters, and may also potentially compromise their operational security.

This is why our customers choose Flashpoint, and this is why we’re receiving peer and industry recognition such as the SC Award finalist nod for Best Emerging Technology. While I’m proud of our recognition as a company, I’m even prouder of our team for building this incredible offering, for continuing to hone their relative expertise, and for dedicating themselves to the future of BRI as a true must-have in the security market.
