iSIGHT Partners ThreatScape API Delivers Machine-to-Machine Integration of Forward-looking Cyber Threat Intelligence

iSIGHT Partners, a global cyber intelligence firm, today announced the immediate availability of ThreatScape® API. The new offering automates machine-to-machine delivery of iSIGHT Partners global intelligence data and threat indicators directly into customer systems and industry leading security products.

As cyber security threats multiply, the vast number of alerts often overwhelms security organizations pressed to balance operational risk and cost. What’s worse, cyber security alerts often rely on past exploits or methods, protecting systems from old threats while leaving them vulnerable to new attacks.

iSIGHT Partners ThreatScape API solves two important problems:

  • Delivers forward-looking threat intelligence so that cyber security teams can proactively protect their organizations against addressable threats;
  • Automates the delivery and connection of threat intelligence to events, prioritizing and speeding cyber security preparations

ThreatScape API enables security teams to link threats to business risk and delivers knowledge about cyber threats before they become active attacks,” said John P. Watters, Chief Executive Officer, iSIGHT Partners. “Integrating our world class intelligence with best of breed security technology provides security teams with the early warning, context, and automation required to focus limited resources on preventing the attacks that will actually impact the business.”

At the core of the new offering, iSIGHT Partners ThreatScape provides cyber threat intelligence and associated technical indicators gathered from 200+ native language speakers in 16 countries. This actionable insight keeps cyber security organizations one step ahead of cyber criminals, and enables security leaders to separate real threats from passing distractions.

ThreatScape API converts iSIGHT Partners best in class insight into industry standard formats that speeds the integration of cyber threat intelligence and technical indicators into security infrastructure. Integrating data tied to context allows the people, processes, and technologies within intelligence-led security organizations to more efficiently and effectively employ knowledge to proactively defend their business.

Leading Security Vendors Adopt ThreatScape API

Customers can employ the ThreatScape API to integrate threat intelligence with their own custom solutions, or leverage off-the-shelf integrations from a number of leading security systems including Co3 Systems, Bit9 + Carbon Black, Invincea, and more. Customers can also use ThreatScape API to easily connect intelligence and data into their analytic solutions such as Splunk and Palantir.
