Enterprises Can Now Gain Visibility of Their Supply Chain Risks in Addition to Personalized Intelligence Surrounding Relevant External and Internal Threats
February 16, 2016 – Sterling, VA – SurfWatch Labs, a provider of cyber threat intelligence solutions, announces the latest release of the SurfWatch Threat Intelligence Suite, which extends visibility into security gaps and risks across the supply chain. With the latest version of the Threat Intelligence Suite, customers can easily map and better visualize their unique network and the relevant cyber threats within their supply chain. Supply chain risks can be viewed alongside external and internal threats for a complete picture of an organization's overall cyber risk.
"As we saw in the Target breach and others, the supply chain is a critical blind spot in many cybersecurity programs," said Tim Layton, Chief Intelligence Officer, SurfWatch Labs. "The SurfWatch Threat Intelligence Suite addresses this major gap by providing a risk-focused view of your supply chain's current cyber threats."
The SurfWatch Threat Intelligence Suite is designed for analysts to bridge the communications gap between security operations and business management. The SurfWatch Suite is a set of integrated SaaS-based products, built on top of powerful cyber threat data and analytics, that can easily be tailored to improve cyber risk understanding and collaboration across all of your core business functions.
New Threat Intelligence Suite Features Include:
- Identification of Suppliers – Leveraging information from an organization's online presence, the SurfWatch Threat Intelligence Suite helps identify an organization's supply chain vendors.
- Discovery of Relevant Supply Chain Threats – The Threat Intelligence Suite automatically collects and correlates available cyber threat information specific to suppliers, allowing organizations to easily map out their supply chain. Organizations can then quickly examine suppliers and their network to determine what threats are relevant to the business.
- Supply Chain Cyber Risk Score – The SurfWatch Threat Intelligence Suite calculates a Cyber Risk Score for your organization based on an assessed score for each supplier in your supply chain.
- Visualize Your Supply Chain – With comprehensive monitoring of your suppliers and their cyber threat activity, the Threat Intelligence Suite will visually identify risk in your supply chain - whether it is a direct supplier or multiple levels down.
"Supply chain visibility and understanding must be baked into an organization's overall cybersecurity program and risk management view to ensure that major gaps aren't left exposed to attackers," said Layton. "With the Threat Intelligence Suite, organizations are armed with the relevant information needed to set the proper cybersecurity strategy and ensure a more resilient enterprise."
