Reston, VA – March 31, 2016 — LookingGlass Cyber Solutions™, the leader in threat intelligence and dynamic threat defense, today announced the availability of its next-generation threat intelligence management platform ScoutPrime™, as well as enhancements to its market leading Cyber Threat Center Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) collection platform and LookingGlass Cyveillance Malicious C2 (Command and Control) Machine Readable Threat Intelligence (MRTI) data feed.

Known for delivering the most advanced and comprehensive threat intelligence driven solutions from a single company, LookingGlass continues to raise the bar with the release of ScoutPrime, which revolutionizes the way analysts and security operators interpret threats targeting their organizations, supply chains, and industries. It delivers unprecedented visual intuition and unlimited configurability to the user for customizing threat criticality to match their organizational risk tolerance.

Configurable Threat Indicator Confidence scoring, along with the only Internet intelligence-based foundation available in a threat intelligence platform, immediately applies context to the largest collection of proprietary and third party threat data available in a single product creating relevancy and actionable intelligence. Along with native transforms for visualization and asynchronous alerting, ScoutPrime operationalizes threat intelligence thus significantly reducing the risk organizations face from new and emerging threats.

According to Gartner, “One of the benefits of threat intelligence is that it improves decision making in core security processes, such as incident response and policy enforcement.” Gartner identified LookingGlass as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner “Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Services” research report.[1]

Also in the report, Gartner recommends that Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) “use a commercial threat intelligence service to develop informed tactics for current threats, and to plan for threats that may exist in the midterm future.” 1

“We are excited to announce the availability of ScoutPrime and the other enhancements to the broadest portfolio of threat intelligence and risk management products in the market,” said Chris Coleman, CEO of LookingGlass Cyber Solutions. “These latest additions ensure our customers stay ahead of the rapidly changing threat landscape targeting their organizations and the companies they do business with.”

Further enhancing its portfolio, LookingGlass also introduced the following updates to its Cyber Threat Center OSINT tasking and collection platform, and to its LookingGlass Cyveillance Malicious C2 data feed.

  • LookingGlass Cyber Threat Center now includes a case management enhancement that allows users to add custom tags for items identified from LookingGlass’ Machine Readable Threat Intelligence integration. These custom data properties, combined with individual ownership and status properties, allow customers to enrich the intelligence to synch with their internal processes and track each vetted issue from delivery to resolution. Additionally, as part of LookingGlass’ ongoing commitment to securing customer data, Cyber Threat Center now has the ability for administrators to enable two-factor authentication on user accounts.
  • LookingGlass Cyveillance Malicious C2 (Command and Control) MRTI data feed now includes support for OpenTPX, as well as significantly increased scale and frequency of updates to domains known to be associated with active malicious C2 servers. Daily updates now include support for Internationalized DomainDomain: A specified location where a set of activity or knowledge exists.
