Press Release EclecticIQ Integrates Intel 471’s Actor-Centric Cyber Intelligence Collection for the World’s Leading Threat Intelligence Teams

  • To understand what your adversaries are doing, you have to know why they’re doing it.
  • Threat intelligence teams have no shortage of incident-centric cyber threat intelligence, with many commercial, open and community sources (including FS-ISAC) providing information about Indicators of Compromise (IOCs). Actor-centric intelligence collection takes your Threat Intelligence Platform to the next level.

Amsterdam, NL – May 24, 2016. Advanced cyber criminals, hacktivists and other rogue actors frequently and easily change their IP addresses, malware hashes and spam email addresses. However, it’s much more difficult for them to change their motivations, goals, intents or attributions.

That’s why Threat Management practitioners in the financial sector and other security-forward industries complement existing sources of intelligence with actor-centric intelligence.

EclecticIQ and Intel 471 have partnered to integrate action-centric intelligence collection into EclecticIQ’s leading Threat Intelligence Platform. Several financial institutions in Europe and the United States have taken this approach, allowing threat analyst teams to work in an integrated environment where a wide variety of intelligence sources are fused and further processed.

Joep Gommers, CEO and Founder of EclecticIQ comments: “Boutique and world-class intelligence collectors and suppliers are an important part of our ecosystem, bringing context to very specific and complex use-cases for our customers.”

Actor-centric intelligence fused with incident-centric intelligence strongly increases the lifespan and relevancy of intelligence. This approach enables mature organizations to complement their reactive security practice with a proactive and predictive approach.
