Easing Threat Intelligence Contextualization with Domain Reputation API

Easing Threat Intelligence Contextualization with Domain Reputation API

We see about 500 new threats emerge every minute, and most of them come with unique or enhanced techniques. The rise of new technologies and trends in the way we do things, which include the adoption of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) concept, cloud services, and the ubiquity of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, among others, are also posing more dangers. All these changes have widened the perimeter that businesses need to protect.

In response, a majority of companies have started using threat intelligence to bolster their cybersecurity measures. They believe their threat intelligence investments have generated an estimated?$2.26 million in cost savings, higher than the returns they got from investing in other technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and automation.

Phishing Website Investigation with Whois XML API and Threat Intelligence Platform Toolsets

Arguably, the most ironic phishing incident to hit American corporations occurred shortly after the infamous Equifax data breach. In September 2017, hackers broke into the networks of the credit reporting bureau Equifax and stole the private details of about 60% of the population of the United States; that is, every American of working age. They made off with the names, addresses, drivers’ license numbers, and social security numbers of 143 million consumers.

WHOIS and the Health Industry

The standard of WHOIS is important to the health industry, especially when it is incorporated into a multi-faceted threat intelligence program. Before we get to that, it is clear in this day and age that many information technology organizations recognize that threat intelligence is a valuable tool, which is, in fact, essential to a strong security posture. However, throughout many industries one of the main issues out there is that the sheer volume of threat data combined with a gap in staff expertise stand to reduce the potential effectiveness of threat intelligence programs. Despite these challenges, threat intelligence programs that include sharing are a critical tool for healthcare organizations, especially with the current state of cybersecurity and the variety of threats of today. Everyone is trying to incorporate this, and here is how WHOIS can be a big part of that.

Organizations that wish to keep their defenses up always have to look for new ways to combat dangerous cyber threats. This can be done by supporting traditional cybersecurity approach with threat intelligence and threat hunting efforts.

Empower Your Security Tools For Deeper Investigation & Quicker Response to Cyber Threats.

Unlock The Value & Power Of Your Security Tools With Enterprise API Package!

In order to proactively mitigate threats or successfully detect cybercrime, security teams need to start by drawing up a map of the adversary’s infrastructure by investigating its historic & active dangerous behavior on a network. The various security tools, systems or software that analysts use to ‘connect the dots’ are effective in providing actionable Intel on any attack surface only if timely, comprehensive & accurate data is collated & ingested in them. Many times just finding the relevant data, collecting it from multiple sources, normalizing it, feeding the data in these tools may waste precious time & result in lost opportunities. (great opportunities for the cyber criminals though!)

Threat Intelligence for Online Security!

Approach Cyber Security the Smart Way!

With each passing year, the magnitude of cyber crime has increased steadfastly. Small & large companies alike are facing threats to their online infrastructure, customer data & reputation with these constantly evolving attacks. Whether it is an in-house IT team monitoring the safety of their company, MSSP providing security services, or security analyst detecting cyber crime at large, smart cybersecurity begins with knowing what you are really up against and having valuable data about hosts, domain owners, websites, servers, and configurations. But with the plethora of data points available to verify & analyze this task has only become more difficult. Professionals are now no longer looking for just data sets but Intel over various online entities to take timely action & make informed decisions on their security operations & strategy.
