Flashpoint Announces Strategic Integration With Ontic to Drive Cyber-Physical Security Partnership
AUSTIN, October 19, 2021 – Ontic, the protective intelligence software innovator digitally transforming how companies actively identify, investigate, assess, watch and manage physical security threats, today announced a strategic integration with Flashpoint, the globally trusted leader in actionable threat intelligence, enabling organizations to protect their assets and stakeholders from malicious activity across the internet.
“The integration of Ontic and Flashpoint provides critical threat intelligence to physical and cyber security teams, so that they can quickly identify and act on harmful threats that can impact an organization,” said Flashpoint CEO Josh Lefkowitz. “We’re excited to partner with Ontic to provide deeper insights into cyber threats and help corporate security teams protect their largest assets.”
With the integration of Flashpoint Alerting, Ontic’s Fortune 500 and emerging enterprise clients will be able to augment their data with Ontic’s existing dark web and cyber intelligence to paint an even fuller picture of potential physical and cyber threats—including insider threats, which are difficult to detect, growing in frequency, and causing great damage to businesses. As the threat landscape dramatically evolves, companies are focusing on convergence of physical and cyber security operations. This integration will enable the automatic flow of Flashpoint Alerting concerning cyber and dark web-related data to physical security teams, improving visibility, and the efficiency of security personnel to act on critical intelligence in a proactive manner.
“Cyber and physical threats are increasing at exponential rates and because they are more often than not connected, companies need to address them holistically,” said Manish Mehta, chief product officer, Ontic. “Flashpoint is a leader in the cybersecurity space, and our integration helps our mutual clients break down security data silos, allowing them to gain more visibility into the threat landscape and proactively combat risk.”
