Increasing awareness of the threat landscape is an increasing demand by organizations to help identify risk and reduce their exposure. Threat intelligence (TI) services provide knowledge about the cyberthreat landscape by documenting tactics, techniques, procedures, and profiling threats and threat actors. TI products assist organizations in collecting, aggregating, curating, and operationalizing their threat intelligence, and optionally sharing that information with outside entities.
Security leaders must ensure their organization’s security solutions are updated with the latest content and provide contextual information to their teams, to inform overall risk. TI enables organizations to maintain visibility over their threat landscape, and create timely, accurate and applicable insights that can be applied prior to, during and after threats present themselves.
TI solutions can enhance security technology capabilities and analyst’s understanding of their adversaries, helping them define outcome driven metrics to identify the highest value in people, process, and technology.
Ridge Security threat intelligence support
As part of an integrated threat intelligence solution, Ridge Security’s RidgeBot® enables organizations to frequently and consistently test their infrastructure, applications, and defenses to find and mitigate weaknesses, gaps and operational deficiencies faster. RidgeBots act like human attackers using sophisticated exploits. RidgeBots relentlessly locate exploits across an enterprise network, document their findings, continuously measure results and effectiveness, and verify vulnerabilities.
RidgeBot enables organizations to conduct automated pentesting from an attacker’s point of view. Before exposures are put into production, RidgeBot finds, assesses, prioritizes, and fixes a wide set of exposures before bad actors get to them. The resulting validation allows organizations to see what would happen in the event of an attack, how their defenses would cope, and how well the processes would perform.
