Your affordable counter-reconnaissance program
If your company develops novel technologies or products that are highly competitive or regulated, chances are excellent that you’re on an Espionage-as-a-Service (EaaS) hacker team’s radar (assuming that you haven’t already been breached). However, the EaaS team is just the middleman in this operation. You want to know who they might be selling your data to.
Before 2015, that information was extremely difficult to obtain. Today, it’s not only obtainable but it can inform and integrate with your company’s existing network security tools. Taia Global’s REDACT is the only product of its kind available outside of a classified environment.
If you’d like more information on the Espionage-as-a-Service threat actor, please read our white paper “The TRIES Framework: Counter-Reconnaissance against EaaS Threat Actors“.
Deep IP Intelligence
Security Information and Event Management products provide you with almost everything there is to know about who’s visiting your company’s website except for the most important thing – the name of the organization or agency that’s actually doing the visiting. REDACT’s Deep IP Intelligence product, built using the Common Event Format (.CEF) standard works seamlessly with your existing SIEM product and will alert you when one of our several hundred Russian, Chinese, French, and South Korean government-funded State Key Labs, research universities, government investment funds, or state-owned enterprises is visiting your website.
These aren’t attackers, but they are interested in your product or research. Whether its for competitive intelligence or merely the earliest stage of evaluating your company’s products to determine future interest, REDACT Deep IP Intelligence is your network’s early warning system.
REDACT on Tableau
Once REDACT’s IP intelligence feed identifies which research institute is gathering information about your company’s products or technology, the analyst can “right-click” on the alert and launch Tableau Online which is connected to our REDACT database. The analyst can then mine REDACT for additional information on the institute down to the subject classification. This video provides a short demonstration.
REDACT Search Portal
Our AWS-hosted search portal provides your cyber security analyst with a way to dig into individual research projects (over 4,000 as of January 2015) as well as download custom reports on the institutes as they become available.
In addition to obtaining project-level data, your analyst can see how the research institute is connected to its government funding agency, who its customers are, and other hard-to-get information.
Connecting the dots for your CEO
When REDACT connects a state-funded research institute to an IP address that has been searching your company’s websites for ITAR controlled products, and then shows related projects in that institute’s research portfolio, your CEO will instantly understand the threat and see the value of your security investment without your CISO having to talk about CVEs, SQLi, or RATs; something that both your CEO and CISO will immediately appreciate.
