07 Jan 14. Cyber Squared Inc. announced that ThreatConnect™, the leading threat intelligence platform, has added the ThreatConnect™ API to their platform for public, private and on-premises customers. The ThreatConnect™ API is a premium offering that allows users the opportunity to pivot through indicators and groups and any associations they have, set up custom watchlists to receive customized, real-time data on indicators, and set up multiple API accounts for different applications, use-cases, and access levels. It provides users and partners the ability to integrate their own knowledge as well as leverage the growing body of crowd sourced and shared Threat Intelligence from within ThreatConnect™ communities. Together, this provides unrivaled understanding of advanced cyber threats. With the ThreatConnect™ API’s Pivot functionality, users have the power to move through the data in the same manner as the ThreatConnect™ user interface, ensuring that no context is lost. This includes the ability to:
Query any Indicator and its associations
Query any Group and its associations
Query Indicator and Group attributes and tags
Query any data from a common tag
Through the use of community sourced tags, confidence ratings, and attributes, the ThreatConnect™ API delivers more integrated products and lets users make more intelligent decisions based on their data. The watchlist capability is very useful as users can get updates on only what’s new about a particular threat, which means they don’t get bogged down in details and information they are already aware of.
