WASHINGTON, April 10, 2017 – PlanetRisk, a pioneer in enterprise risk analytics, and SurfWatch Labs, a provider of cyber threat intelligence solutions, have teamed up to deliver comprehensive cybersecurity and enterprise risk analytics and visualization for Fortune 1000 and government customers. PlanetRisk will incorporate SurfWatch’s industry-leading Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) capabilities into its Cyber Risk (CRX) platform to provide customers with enhanced visibility into online threats.
To defend against cyber-attacks, most organizations look within their own networks for possible intruders and ways to layer defenses, but lack an external examination of threats happening across an organization’s industry. Now, thanks to this new partnership, corporate assets are visualized on a single screen and monitored in real-time, monitoring facilities, employees, products, and suppliers.
“The integration of SurfWatch’s CTI will provide PlanetRisk customers with a holistic view of the threats to their enterprise, both online and physical assets,” said Paul McQuillan, PlanetRisk CEO. “PlanetRisk’s CRX is able to provide a personalized cyber risk profile, perform a baseline risk assessment, and continuously monitor your risk profile against relevant, trending threats.”
“With more interconnectivity than ever before, organizations are experiencing a dramatic expansion of their level of presence beyond the traditional corporate boundaries,” said Jim Gaughan, President and COO, SurfWatch Labs. “By providing organizations with visibility of their digital footprint along with cyber threat intelligence that is specific to their business, industry and supply chain, SurfWatch Labs and PlanetRisk can help companies proactively address critical gaps in their security strategy and ensure greater resiliency.”
