ThreatQuotient improves security operations by fusing together data sources, tools & teams to accelerate threat detection & response. ThreatQuotient’s data-driven security operations platform helps teams prioritize, automate & collaborate on security incidents; enables more focused decision making; & maximizes limited resources by integrating existing processes & technologies into a unified workspace.
To understand and stop threats more effectively and efficiently, existing security infrastructure and people need to work smarter, not harder. ThreatQ serves as an open and extensible threat intelligence platform that allows users to automate the intelligence lifecycle, quickly understand threats, make better decisions and accelerate detection and response.
SOAR connects disparate systems to orchestrate and automate response. Existing SOAR platforms have taken a process-driven approach to connect products within a workflow; however, for optimal detection and response, a data-driven approach is needed to prioritize data and connect systems with that data. Automating and orchestrating noisy data just amplifies the noise.
Gartner defines XDR as solutions that “automatically collect and correlate data from multiple security products to improve threat detection and provide an incident response capability.” To achieve XDR, users need to connect all detection and response products from all vendors from cloud to on-premises. Add to that the challenge of connecting third-party data and intelligence for context and they are faced with a tall task. What is needed is an Open XDR architecture so that all systems and sources can work together, sending the right data to the right tools at the right time for accelerated detection and response.

Helping Rhinos is an international rhino charity forging innovative conservation, community and education initiatives to ensure the long-term survival of the rhino and other endangered wildlife in their natural habitat.
They work with a small number of partners, predominantly in Africa, who meet some or all of the following criteria, they:
– Preserve or develop new habitat for rhinos and other species
– Protect rhinos from poaching
– Provide information and education on the importance of the sustaining the rhino population to local communities and broader populations
– Sustain the species via other sustainable and scalable projects
Helping Rhinos Partnership + Adoptions
ThreatQuotient became an official partner of Helping Rhinos in 2019. To date, they have adopted four rhinos. The first, Mthetho, was adopted in honor of World Rhino Day 2019. ThreatQuotient then adopted three orphaned rhinos to represent each region the company serves customers: Makhosi for AMER, Mpilo for EMEA and Bhanoyi for APAC. For World Rhino Day 2020, ThreatQuotient is sponsoring a member of South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, Black Mambas, named Nocry. The Black Mamba patrols 50,000 hectares of the Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, raising awareness of the rhino poaching crisis in surrounding villages.
ThreatQuotient’s support of Helping Rhinos directly enables conservation education programs in the areas surrounding Kariega Game Reserve that reduces the likelihood of community members turning to poaching, keeps the Kariega anti-poaching unit up and running and enables them to keep rhinos safe within their area of operation. Each rhino adoption provides milk, food and essential medication for the rhinos, as well as security and overall maintenance of the rhino facilities and the orphanage.
ThreatQ’s customer-defined Scoring is huge. We currently have one false positive per month, whereas eight months back we had ten per day.” – Threat Intelligence Manager, Fortune 500 Technology Company
“ThreatQ provided the key technology needed to launch our MDR service with a differentiated set of capabilities. Their engine integrates data across a multitude of sources to ensure we can deliver relevant prioritized threat intel to our solution for our customers. Our MDR service is launching with true XDR functionality and ThreatQ is a cornerstone of the service.” – Architect / Lead of MDR Services and Head of Threat Management – Large Technology Company
“ThreatQ has enabled us to organize our Cyber Threat Intelligence into a structured database that lets us use it in ways we previously could not. The consolidation and sharing of information related to each piece of intelligence and the automated ingest of many intelligence feeds has also increased the speed at which awareness is achieved throughout the organization.” – Cyber Security Analyst, U.S. Department of Defense
“ThreatQ cut our investigating time by over 80% and reduced the rate of false positives and false negatives by 50%.” – MSSP Executive Director, COO & CTSO
“Thanks to the scoring mechanism that we have, we are able to filter through 24M indicators and we are extracting around 5M actionable IOC’s out of it. So it is truly reducing the noise.” – SOC Analyst, Fortune 500 Technology Company
“ThreatQ is able to support our threat intelligence and investigation processes — we weren’t forced to change our methods — and they did this with out-of-the-box integrations to our incoming feeds, complementary security tools and defensive controls.” – Senior Threat Intelligence Analyst, Global Technology Company
“ThreatQ automatically associates indicators to an event so we can quickly pivot and determine the right priority. Instead of wasting time on what ends up being ‘meh’, we’re focused on what matters.

“We now have IOC data from trusted sources being sent proactively to detection-only watch lists in various internal security controls without daily oversight required by the team’s personnel. What’s more, because we’re selectively exporting data to the tool specifically designed to consume it, we aren’t pushing massive amounts of data across the network and slowing things down.” — Director of Threat Response, Fortune 500 Financial Services Company
“ThreatQ Investigations enables our team to not only collaborate, coordinate and document investigations, but visually pivot through vast amounts of data to increase the effectiveness of our team and our analysis processes, ultimately providing stronger detections and threat intelligence for our customers.” – Director, Global Threat Research, Global IT Services and Consulting Company
