ThreatQuotient Enhances Professional Services Offering
Security operations platform innovator ThreatQuotient has announced enhancements to their professional services offering, including new Assessment and Consulting Services.
First launched in 2017, ThreatQuotient’s global Professional Services team has been providing the core capabilities to assess, design and build a threat-centric security operations function. The vendor is enabling organisations to transition from traditional signature-based monitoring, detection and response to an external, threat-focused program.
In addition to the current services of implementation, training and development, ThreatQuotient now offers consulting services that range from an initial assessment of current threat intelligence capabilities, to more in-depth and long-term process development. The ultimate goal is to mature a program to the point that a team can confidently address specific use cases like spearphishing, threat hunting and vulnerability management. ThreatQuotient’s services can educate new cyber intelligence teams, refocus teams onto specific classes of threats, and operationalise an intelligence practice.
ThreatQuotient’s Professional Services also guide the development of a strategic plan, which embeds threat intelligence within all functions of security operations, by taking into account stakeholder analyses, risk identification and a one to three-year growth plan. In addition, ThreatQuotient enables security executives to leverage the application of global threat intelligence to communicate effectively with their business leadership.
The vendor will help organisations seamlessly deploy the ThreatQ platform into their ecosystem, however, companies do not have to be users of the platform to take advantage of its services to mature their operations and learn how to implement threat intelligence. ThreatQuotient’s experts can provide additional support to create automated workflows, develop and/or map attributes against data sets or feeds, auto-enrich indicator sets, or provide specific deployment actions against intelligence.
“ThreatQuotient’s services team uses best practices for threat intelligence and training to consult on applying the right processes and workflows, accelerating detection and response, and integrating ThreatQ with each enterprise’s unique ecosystem of pre-existing technologies to extend the architecture of their security operations,” said Firas Ghanem, Regional Director, Middle East & Pakistan at ThreatQuotient. “With our new assessment service, ThreatQuotient extends to help organisations that are new to threat intelligence answer an important but difficult question – are we ready to get value from a cyber threat intelligence program? If they are not, we can work to get them ready and help set up the people, processes, and technologies necessary to integrate intelligence into security operations and cyber risk management programs.”
