Risk intelligence expanded
Business risk specialists, Flashpoint (www.flashpoint-intel.com) launches a new offering for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) that expands their security capacity and adds more value to their clients through proactive BRI capabilities.
“Managed security services providers increasingly require comprehensive solutions that parallel what Flashpoint’s Business Risk Intelligence encompasses,” explains Ayesha Prakash, Head of Global Channels & Partnerships, Flashpoint. “They experience many of the same challenges as traditional IT and security teams operating inside small- and medium-sized businesses, most notably severely limited security capabilities beyond baseline detection and monitoring services, specifically in the areas of threat hunting and overall incident response. Innovation among threat actors, meanwhile, is not stagnant and their capabilities are not constrained by corporate policies and compliance mandates.”
Flashpoint’s extensive ability to safely track adversaries across multiple types of online communities and collections from open web and deep and dark web sources, makes it an indispensable resource for MSSPs wishing to extend those capabilities to clients.
With access to Flashpoint’s technical data, vulnerability information, and finished intelligence reports, analysts can safely conduct research within threat actor communities and bring meaningful context to threats, allowing organisations to take informed actions and mitigate risk.
“Flashpoint’s prioritization of MSSPs as a key component of our channel offering meets their needs for data and intelligence from illicit online communities, and demonstrates our ability to support businesses of all sizes.”
