Flashpoint Strengthens Intelligence Platform with New Dashboards and Analytics, Expanded Collections and Tailored Alerting by Industry

Company Significantly Expands Use-Case Driven Business Risk Intelligence (BRI) Offerings
London - 24th April 2019 - Flashpoint, the global leader in Business Risk Intelligence (BRI), today announced new innovations and enhancements that help multiple teams bolster cybersecurity, confront fraud, detect insider threats, enhance corporate and physical security, and address third-party risk.
The new innovations and enhancements strengthen Flashpoint Intelligence Platform, which grants access to the company’s archive of finished intelligence reports, data from illicit forums, marketplaces, chat services, paste sites, technical data, card and account shops, and vulnerabilities, in a finished intelligence experience. The platform scales Flashpoint’s internal team of specialised, multilingual intelligence analysts’ ability to quickly provide responses to customers.
“As a long-time Flashpoint customer, I have seen many iterations of the company’s platform, technology, and collections,” said Jim Nelms, Chief Information Security Officer at LabCorp. “This is by far the largest leap that the Flashpoint team has taken in terms of expanding its datasets and making intelligence more consumable, and it did so while holding true to its vision of bringing BRI to diverse teams across an enterprise.”
The platform now features new dashboards and analytics, expanded datasets, chat services and communities, and industry alerting that simplify an organisation’s consumption and automation of intelligence. The enhancements include:
Account Shops: Customers can identify their organisation's compromised accounts found for sale in illicit account shops, providing an ability to reduce the risk of employees’ or customers' login details being used in credential stuffing attacks.
Card Shops: Collections of stolen credit card data found in illicit high-end credit card shops, compromised from a variety of operations — including dumps from point-of-sale (POS) compromises, or credit cards from card-not-present (CNP) transactions.
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs): Prioritise the vulnerabilities that matter most with access to the latest CVEs, as well as CVEs discussed by threat actors as observed by Flashpoint intelligence analysts with incorporated access to MITRE ATT&CK and NVD data.
Dashboards: Comprehensive view of data measured against Flashpoint collections, most relevant to an organisation; from monitoring the latest credit card leaks, to keeping track of the most active CVEs, our dashboards provide a one-pane view into information and data to help better mitigate vulnerability exposure and risk to your organisation.
Expanded Chat Services: Flashpoint’s Telegram collections now allow customers to view critical media included in chat services messages, such as audio, images, documents, and other file types, including malware samples and technical data, providing more context to chat conversations and additional intelligence for research purposes. Collections are also expanding to include illicit discussions and media on multiple chat services.
Expanded Communities: Flashpoint is expanding its coverage of illicit discussions in communities such as 4Chan, 8Chan, and Dread, providing users with additional context as to how threats move across the web.
Industry Alerting: Based on multi-language keyword patterns developed, curated, and maintained by our Intelligence team, this product provides customers tactical information derived from threat actor conversations that are relevant to users in their respective industries and industries they want to monitor. In addition to Flashpoint’s tailored industry alerting for financial services, retail, legal and healthcare, the company has added patterns that find signal in the noise for users who are in, or care about, the technology, insurance, and telecommunications industries.
"We've listened to the Flashpoint community and really focused on creating features and capabilities that help address our customers' most important use cases," said Josh Lefkowitz, Flashpoint CEO. "As a result, we've expanded our data collections, refined our intelligence, and delivered analytics in ways that help our users detect, understand, and mitigate the threats they face without overwhelming them with noise.”
Flashpoint’s continued innovation around collections also supports its one-of-a-kind Flashpoint Collaboration (FPCollab), a TLP Amber information sharing community comprised exclusively of leading intelligence experts across 20 industries.
“When a proof-of-concept (PoC) code for a high-impact vulnerability was released, one of our analysts immediately notified FPCollab, sparking a discussion in which members reciprocated by providing their own PoC code or recommended mitigations,” Lefkowitz continued. “FPCollab members then synergised to fine tune the PoC code, better understand how the vulnerability could be exploited, mitigate the risk it posed to their network environments, and build upon each other’s findings.”
Industry research also indicates that specific use cases are driving purchasing decisions around threat intelligence for enterprises.
In its recent Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services (February 2019), “Gartner continues to strongly advocate on use cases as being the primary outcome that end users must pursue, not a specific source or technology. Pragmatically, use cases and the outcomes they deliver are setting the primary influential direction of this market.” [1]

LONDON - 9th April 2019 - OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code rapid application development, today announced that it has been named a 2019 Top Rated Low-Code Platform by TrustRadius, the most trusted site for business technology B2B software reviews.
This distinction, based entirely on the feedback and rating from end users, evaluates the likelihood-to-recommend ratings and evaluation frequency by buyers. OutSystems was named one of the best low-code software platforms with a score of 8.9 out of 10 among 125 reviews as of April 3, 2019.
“OutSystems has earned a Top Rated Low-Code Development Platform award from TrustRadius based directly on customer feedback,” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius. “Reviewers love OutSystems for its solid multi-platform development capabilities, strong community support and interaction, and rapid advancement of developer skills.”
Steve Rotter, CMO of OutSystems, also highlighted the importance of this recognition: “This is the third year in a row that we’ve been recognised as a Top Rated Low-Code Platform. We’re constantly working to make sure OutSystems is the platform our customers trust to innovate, generate revenue, and improve productivity. This recognition and all the great reviews that led to it are a validation from real users that OutSystems provides true value to their business and that our customers are happy customers.”
Here are some of the reviews listed on TrustRadius about OutSystems:
“Significantly reduced time to market for both Mobile and Web applications. Ability to upskill developers far quicker than with most development environments. Enterprise-grade infrastructure and hosting out-of-the-box.” (Web and Enterprise Team Lead, Computer Software industry)
“The ease of use of the OutSystems platform has been the biggest ROI for us. We have developed our Framework product and maintained/enhanced it with only four workers. OutSystems has enhanced their product very significantly over the last four years. They have gone from a simple to use tool to a sophisticated tool that covers the standard mainframe-based computing apps.” (CIO, Computer Software industry)
“Our old, legacy system didn’t serve our needs anymore and it wasn’t flexible at all. With OutSystems, we are building a new one from scratch. Two of us are new to OutSystems (and IT) and learned to use it in a few months. We hired three external experts to build and teach the juniors, so we could start building and delivering value immediately.” (Student Supervisor, Non-Profit Organisation).

Global Incident Response Threat Report (GIRTR) from Carbon Black Details Notable Rise in Island Hopping and Counter Incident Response (IR) Behaviours

Survey finds attackers ‘fighting back’ against security teams while also targeting supply chains
With one of the most robust IR communities in cybersecurity, Carbon Black partners conduct more than one response engagement per day, on average, using Carbon Black software
Reading, UK — 2nd April 2019 - Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in cloud-delivered, next-generation endpoint security, today announced the release of its latest Global Incident Response Threat Report, aggregating key findings from IR partner investigations during the last 90 days.
Carbon Black’s 100+ IR partners conducted more than 500 response engagements in 2018 and continue to use Carbon Black solutions in more than one engagement per day, on average. The insights from the GIRTR chronicle Carbon Black partners’ experiences during these critical engagements.
Among the key findings from the report:
  • Half of today’s surveyed attacks leverage “island hopping”, the report noted, meaning attackers are not only after a network, but supply chains as well
  • More than half of survey respondents (56%) encountered instances of counter-incident response in the past 90 days
  • 70% of all attacks now involve attempts at lateral movement, according to the survey results, as attackers take advantage of new vulnerabilities and native operating system tools to move around a network
  • Nearly a third (31%) of targeted victims now experience destructive attacks, the survey noted — an alarming byproduct of attackers gaining better and more prolonged access to targets' environments
"Attackers are fighting back. They appear to have no desire to leave the environment. And they don’t just want to rob you and those along your supply chain. In the parlance of the dark web, attackers these days appear to want to ‘own’ your entire system,” said Tom Kellermann, Carbon Black’s Chief Cybersecurity Officer.
According to the survey results, the financial and healthcare industries remain most vulnerable to destructive attacks, but the threat to manufacturing companies has grown significantly. In the past 90 days, nearly 70% of all respondents saw attacks on the financial industry, followed by healthcare (61%) and manufacturing (59%, up from 41% in the previous report).
The latest GIRTR aggregates qualitative and quantitative input from 40+ Carbon Black IR partners and includes detailed case studies from BTB Security, DarkMatter and Optiv. The report’s goal is to offer actionable intelligence for business and technology leaders, fueled by analysis of the newest threats, and expert insights on how to stop them. This is Carbon Black’s third Global IR report since introducing it in July 2018.

Digital Government Survey: Increasing the Quality of Citizen User Experience Is App Developer’s Top Goal

LONDON — 2nd April 2019OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code rapid application development, today announced the results of a new Digital Government Survey. The research, conducted in partnership with IDG, revealed that the top priority of application developers at state and local government agencies is improving the quality of the citizen experience (46 percent), followed by reducing the cost of service delivery (42 percent).
Other top priorities include improving data security (42 percent), providing better access to data and information (40 percent), and increasing the speed of service delivery (38 percent).
“The survey results clearly show that developers in government agencies need tools and processes to help them create positive user experiences while also keeping a lid on costs,” said Mike Hughes, product evangelist at OutSystems. “A low-code approach to application development accomplishes both goals. It allows teams with limited resources to rapidly meet the needs of their users while providing a consistently high-quality, secure user experience.”
Organisations that use OutSystems can build applications up to 10 times faster using pre-built components with proven reliability instead of coding everything from the ground up. This enables departments with limited resources to stretch budgets and personnel to service other priorities. They can free up staff to help citizens who truly require personalised service and allow IT teams to devote more time to innovation.
OutSystems government customers have used the low-code platform to drive positive results in their communities. The City of Oakland, California saved $1 million within one year, enabling the city to accelerate delivery of numerous applications that serve Oakland’s 412,000 citizens. Additionally, a single developer at the City of Shawnee, Kansas modernised 30 apps for the city’s 66,000 residents in just a year with the help of the OutSystems platform – shortening the time significantly from what it would have taken using conventional development methods.
