The clarity that Team Cymru’s data provides is unlike any other tool designed to illuminate the external threat environment, and their global coverage allows us to find answers to tough questions wherever an investigation takes us.
ORLANDO, Fla. and ALEXANDRIA, Va. (PRWEB) July 13, 2020
Nisos and Team Cymru today announced that they have partnered to combine Nisos’ Managed Intelligence services with Team Cymru’s unparalleled data. Team Cymru collects, processes and aggregates global network traffic and 50+ other types of data to deliver Pure Signal(TM) via its proprietary software, the Augury(TM) platform.
As attackers continue to find ways to bypass traditional defenses, security teams have found the need to extend their reach beyond their own networks to the global Internet to collect intelligence that informs both incident response and proactive threat hunting. Yet many organizations lack the tools and analytic expertise to externally investigate and monitor malicious infrastructures. The partnership with Nisos allows organizations lacking analyst resources to take advantage of Team Cymru’s unique Internet-wide visibility, and it provides quick start training for internal analyst teams new to using the Augury platform.
Team Cymru’s Augury platform enables network forensics at Internet scale, which allows security teams to investigate and monitor external threats with a level of clarity similar to what they would expect from their internal network telemetry. Like the advanced teams in the Fortune 500 that Team Cymru counts as satisfied customers, Nisos operators leverage the platform to track back attacker command and control infrastructure, often through VPNs, proxies, and other anonymization tactics. This unfiltered ground truth, called Pure Signal, enables investigations and actor tracking that would not be possible without it.
Nisos’ Managed Intelligence services enable security teams to control a world-class intelligence capability tailored to fill their specific knowledge and collection gaps. From helping teams baseline the threats they face to attributing APT-level attackers, Nisos pairs human analytic and technical expertise with data and technology to provide actionable intelligence, enabling security teams to maximize their existing capabilities.
“Augury is an indispensable tool in our kit,” said Nisos President & Co-founder, Justin Zeefe. “The clarity that Team Cymru’s data provides is unlike any other tool designed to illuminate the external threat environment, and their global coverage allows us to find answers to tough questions wherever an investigation takes us.”
“Nisos has the strongest team of operators we’ve come across,” noted Team Cymru CEO, Rabbi Rob Thomas. “Their backgrounds and organizational expertise afford them the collective experience needed to not only make the most of the Augury platform, but to identify and monitor attackers via a variety of methods.”
In addition to partnering to help companies expand their capabilities, Nisos and Team Cymru will also partner on industry education, which is core to both companies’ missions. The first such event, “A Look at APT 34 and Rogue Cobalt Strike Servers: Using Augury to Map, Monitor and Take Action against APT Groups,” will take place on July 30, 2020 at 2:00 pm EDT.
