It’s possible that a cyber war is coming anytime. Cyberattacks have been rippling the airwaves and headlines. The only thing reputable companies must do is to safeguard their data centers. That’s where ThreatStream plans on squeezing itself in the scene.

ThreatStream Provides Collaborative Cybersecurity Intelligence

ThreatStream is a Software as a Service cloud based platform which aims to help companies and organisations detect upcoming possible threats. This will be an answer to the ongoing cyber attacks that’s happening in the tech industry, as the company will enable users to see beyond their own environments for viewing forming attacks before they hot you.

ThreatStream developed a system that’s powered by real-time collaboration cybersecurity intelligence crowdsourcing in the cloud. Its system called Optic search the Internet for possible threats in files, IP addresses, and more. It will then identify the connections among all the threats to easily intercept malicious items coming in, so they’d be stopped before they can do damage to data centers.

Seeing How ThreatStream Works

The company’s Optic system aggregates global, local, and trusted threat intel data and analytics in real-time from a private network. This would allow companies to warn others of a potential cyber threat that’s lurking its way into their servers.

“If an attacker hits Bank of America, and then JPMorgan soon after, you can assume that Wells Fargo is going to be next on the list of targets,” ThreatStream CEO Greg Martin said.

The optimised relevant findings will be incorporated into the client’s existing security infrastructure. ThreatStream will let a company know whether another organisation has been attacked with the threat before so they can immediately prepare to safeguard their network.

ThreatStream Has Been Proven to be Effective

To heed the request of Bloomberg, ThreatStream worked with the said company to set up online decoys and pretend to be industrial-control systems for three months. That was to know which locations and files will be the sources for cyberattacks.

Indeed, it found the biggest sources where great threats can orginate, mainly from U.S. China, and Russia. The attacks were plotted in their larger dataset as subsets as found by ThreatStream. The company detected the location of computers used and the intensity of damage they can execute.

All attacks were proven to be real. The result concludes that ThreatStream can show legitimate data when it comes to spotting how hackers attack infrastructures, especially on a larger scale.
