Tool aims to boost usability of threat data across security teams
Threat intel specialist Recorded Future today unveiled a collection of cultivated use cases designed to increase the use of threat intelligence feeds across multiple security disciplines and speed the use of that data within automated security workflows.
The Lowdown: The vendor’s new Intelligence Goals Library comes packed with hundreds of use cases that can be quickly activated without the need for a lengthy review process or input from an expert security analyst.
The Details: The Intelligence Goals Library includes alerting rules, queries, and integrations to help identify and enhance intelligence-led security workflows. The library is organized into seven security categories:
Security operations — Monitors for potential threats, including malware, RATs, exploits, and rootkits.
Threat analysis — Offers visibility into vulnerability risk, data exposure incidents, brand mentions, and attack planning activities.
Incident Response — Monitors for data exposure incidents, such as leaked credentials or company e-mails on code repositories.
Vulnerability management — Identifies high-risk vulnerabilities within the organization and provides insights on exploit kits, taking into account organizational priorities.
Risk analysis — Evaluates and monitors threats related to partners and the supply chain with real-time alerting.
Fraud — Scans dark web and criminal communities for stolen assets, like credit cards or gift cards.
Security leadership — Delivers a real-time picture of the latest threats, trends, and events that impact the threat landscape and an organization’s security environment.
The Buzz: “The Intelligence Goals Library operationalizes two of the most challenging elements of establishing a strong threat intelligence strategy: identifying the right goals and distributing consistent context across a security organization,” said Matt Kodama, vice president of products at Recorded Future. “This launch allows all security professionals to align their program goals with their organization and shift to a proactive position through external intelligence.”
