FireEye announced the availability of FireEye Digital Threat Monitoring – a new way for customers to defend their digital footprint across otherwise inaccessible facets of the web.
Traditional cyber defenses are designed to protect assets that exist within an organization’s network. However, assets extend far beyond the network perimeter, thereby increasing the risk of exposure or theft. FireEye Digital Threat Monitoring automatically collects and analyzes content on the dark and open web, alerting defenders whenever a potential threat is detected. By exposing threats early, organizations can more effectively identify breaches, exposures, and digital threats before they escalate – without adding operational complexity for the current security team.
“No one has time to search the dark web all day for new updates,” said the Lead Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst at a Fortune 500 Hospitality company. “FireEye Digital Threat Monitoring is useful for any team, especially smaller ones, to cover tons of ground in a limited amount of time. Rather than manually searching for threats across a bunch of forums, marketplaces, and social networks, the Digital Threat Monitoring portal alerts us to any malicious online chatter in real-time. Our network security is highly proactive as a result.”
“FireEye has a long track record of providing threat intelligence to organizations and governments that view threat intelligence as a critical capability. In fact, the depth and breadth of our collection sources means that FireEye holds the most mature underground monitoring capabilities in the business. This is critically important for organizations looking to take ownership of these once inaccessible facets of the internet,” said Sandra Joyce, SVP of Global Intelligence at FireEye.
Joyce continued, “Digital Threat Monitoring serves as a natural starting point for organizations looking to add intelligence capabilities to their security portfolio. We’re reducing risk by helping internal security teams extend their reach so they can focus on the most immediate threats to their organizations. This ROI benefit is easy to understand for business leaders outside of security.”
