Seattle, USA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
IOActive, Inc., the leading global provider of specialist information security services, today announced the launch of its new Security Intelligence Service, to help arm organisations with prioritized critical security insights based on their unique business in light of the ever growing threat landscape.
World-renowned research capabilities and extensive experience providing security-related consulting to many of the world's largest and most demanding companies makes it possible for IOActive to offer a Security Intelligence Service like no other. Unlike typical vulnerability feed services, IOActive uses its unique industry- and customer-centric experience to deliver highly customised attack information that is tailored to the specific industries and businesses of its customers. Additionally, the information is prioritised based on the customer’s particular business dynamics and delivered as actionable intelligence. IOActive can also support customers with response, remediation, and prevention capabilities based on the intelligence provided.
IOActive is perennially recognised around the world for its cutting-edge security research, and first to release data on a wide range of industries and topics, including most recently:
Recent IOActive research garnering widespread acknowledgement from around the world includes being the first to identify vulnerabilities in the United States Emergency Alert Systems; TURCK industrial automation devices; pacemakers and ICDs (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators); and major manufacturer automobile ECUs (Electronic Control Units). This research helps further solidify IOActive’s expertise in the field of security intelligence.
The real-time human intelligence gathering, combined with analysis from IOActive's acclaimed security research team and the unique knowledge gained from a deep understanding of customer needs from IOActive consultants enables a highly focused and robust Security Intelligence capability. This service gives customers critical insight that simply cannot be effectively extrapolated for their specific business from even the best data feeds or big data crunching solutions, much less have it before it’s actually public. Customised and prioritised early warning data enables organisations to better implement action plans and apply resources more efficiently and appropriately based on the threat(s) identified and the potential business impact(s).
IOActive’s Security Intelligence Service is headed by Chris Valasek, who was recently widely acclaimed for his ground-breaking work on vulnerabilities in the Electronic Control Units (ECU) used by all major automobile manufacturers to control many of the primary functions of the vehicles they produce. Chris was able to demonstrate how these core systems can be manipulated to debilitate or even entirely remove the driver’s control of steering, braking, and other highly central functions to basic automobile usage and safety.
