According to a press release just out, Cyber Squared Inc. which owns ThreatConnect™, a leading threat intelligence platform, entered into a partnership with DomainTools and Farsight Security, Inc. to provide ThreatConnect users with the industry’s most powerful domain and passive DNS intelligence.
“We know that the most sophisticated and mature organizations are using our data to assess network-counterparty configuration history and associated risk, and to amplify the value of their threat intelligence data. Working with ThreatConnect means that over 2,000 global users are now able to take advantage of our services.”
Using DomainTools’ branded Reverse Whois and Registrant Alert services in ThreatConnect’s Track feature, ThreatConnect customers are able to research malicious domain registrants from the industry’s longest running and most comprehensive searchable database of domain name registration and hosting data.
With Farsight Security’s passive DNS (pDNS), the de-facto market-leading source for commercial pDNS data, analysts can pivot within ThreatConnect to discover new network indicators related to the threats they are most concerned about, providing custom context and the most relevant threat intelligence data.
DomainTools and Farsight Security data services together within ThreatConnect offer users the best DNS based threat intelligence capability on the market.
“We are continuing to expand our data services and to build an integrated platform for threat intelligence that is relevant to our customers,” said Cyber Squared CEO Adam Vincent. “Our customers are the biggest organizations out there, and they need an enterprise-level, best-in-class solution to get the most accurate and up-to-date information on Whois, DNS, and pDNS data. Whether they are investigating malware, a spear-phishing incident, DDOS, or another kind of theft or fraud, ThreatConnect is made stronger through partnerships with services from such leading organizations as DomainTools and Farsight Security.”
ThreatConnect enables analysts to engage in predictive network defense by allowing them to grow their knowledge of threats, discover new indicators, and make associations to adversaries that pose a risk to their networks. A platform such as ThreatConnect allows users to aggregate their data, then analyze it using crowd-sourced intelligence coupled with the ability to search through resources like Farsight Security’s DNSDB and DomainTools’ Reverse Whois and Registrant Alert services, resulting in an extremely powerful platform with capabilities no other company is offering today.
“Passive DNS data has become a must-have for comprehensive DNS research and effective network security forensics,” said Bert Lathrop, Chief Operating Officer of Farsight Security, Inc. “We know that the most sophisticated and mature organizations are using our data to assess network-counterparty configuration history and associated risk, and to amplify the value of their threat intelligence data. Working with ThreatConnect means that over 2,000 global users are now able to take advantage of our services.”
DomainTools data is immediately available to ThreatConnect subscribers through the Track feature.
Farsight Security’s pDNS service is available in Beta now and will be available to all ThreatConnect subscribers in mid-Q2.
Results from both DomainTools Reverse Whois and Registrant Alerts as well as Farsight Security pDNS are available to be chosen as Indicators and associated with tracked Threats or Adversaries within ThreatConnect.
