New Innovation Further Extends Organizations’ Ability to Apply Business Risk Intelligence Across the Enterprise and Address Diverse Use Cases
New York, NY – May 24, 2017 – Flashpoint, the global leader in Business Risk Intelligence (BRI), today introduced its Flashpoint Intelligence Platform 3.0, the latest version of its BRI platform offering new features and customizations in a sophisticated, finished intelligence experience.
Flashpoint Intelligence Platform 3.0 grants access to the company’s expansive archive of intelligence reports and Deep & Dark Web data. Users in enterprises of all sizes and maturities, and across all business functions and use cases, can improve their decision-making abilities. The latest version includes:
• Customizable BRI Dashboard: Our “onboarding wizard” allows for quick customization to industry, region, category, and threat target access. It’s a finished intelligence experience to help organizations make more informed decision.
• Intelligence-to-Data Pivoting: Browse or query reports then click directly into a sanitized copy of the original threat actor conversation. Assess emerging threats, vulnerabilities, and potential impacts to accurately and make effective risk decisions.
• Tagging and Content Classification: The Flashpoint Intelligence Platform features optimized intelligence and report tagging and classification that improves report searching and discovery. Users can simply investigate BRI reports, including cybercrime intelligence, physical threat intelligence, and sanitized searching of the Deep & Dark Web, and easily gain a deep contextual understanding of the threats that matter to them the most.
Since its inception, Flashpoint’s integration of innovative technology and human-powered analysis has allowed its customers to achieve the most relevant, contextual intelligence required to address their business risk. This updated platform further scales the company’s internal team of intelligence analysts’ ability to provide faster, more robust deliverables to customers — including finished intelligence and RFIs. Flashpoint analysts and researchers are tradecraft experts who have honed their skills over years of operating in the most austere online surroundings and training in elite government and corporate environments. They have an intimate understanding of cultures and communities and speak more than a dozen languages with a textured understanding of underground vernacular and slang. The platform also creates a more streamlined portal to support Advisory Services and Customer Success teams, both composed of intelligence operations veterans.
“Some threat intelligence solutions can be no different than URL filtering, merely contributing to the greater noise. Instead, good threat intelligence solutions are customized and able to deliver a high-confidence alert to initiate an actionable response. Peering out at what often looks like a world of shadows and hostility, security teams can see specificity as a key to the achievement of their best success with limited resources,” according to Gartner Research Vice President Greg Young.¹
BRI broadens the scope of cyber intelligence beyond threat detection to provide relevant context to business units not traditionally afforded the benefits of intelligence viewed only by cybersecurity or security operations teams. This expansion of intelligence can help organizations address a myriad of potential issues, including insider threat, fraud, third-party risk, executive and employee protection, physical security, M&A integrity, money laundering, and, of course, traditional cybersecurity and incident response.
“Unlike other approaches that can only monitor known risks, our customers often report that we provide answers to questions they didn’t know to ask — thereby empowering them to mitigate risk at a much more strategic level,” said Josh Lefkowitz, CEO and co-founder, Flashpoint. “Enterprises need to protect their ability to operate. They must make better, more informed decisions around risk, and to do so they need a solution that can give them immediate visibility into real threats and the context to help them understand how these threats could impact their business.”
Flashpoint Intelligence Platform 3.0 is available now. For more information, request a meeting with one of our subject matter experts to learn how the BRI platform can be tailored to your organization.
