Security professionals can use Express to access threat intelligence within SIEM solutions to accelerate alert triage, vulnerability scanners to prioritize patching, and incident response systems to improve action, as well as with other news or intelligence sources to get meaningful context faster.

“The Recorded Future plugin makes it possible to reduce our response times by having real-time threat intelligence at our fingertips. It has proven to be a great time saver and a process improvement we weren’t even expecting when we chose Recorded Future. These kinds of major wins from a vendor significantly increases their value to us.” — Darian Lewis, Security Architect, Relativity

Recorded Future delivers relevant, real-time threat intelligence powered by machine learning to manage risk. The company’s patented technology automatically collects and analyzes information and provides invaluable context for better decision-making on potential threats.

“Security teams need to be exponentially faster than bad actors and address attack surface expansion — we’re not just outcompeting bad guys, we’re working against risk presented by the IoT, digital transformation, the supply chain, and more. Express is designed to remove bottlenecks and silos between security functions by eliminating barriers to adoption and delivering actionable threat intelligence within existing security processes.” — Christopher Ahlberg, CEO and Co-Founder, Recorded Future

Putting Intelligence in Action

Express works seamlessly with SIEM applications, email security portals, vulnerability scanners, email providers, and more. With one click, Express identifies and organizes all IPs, hashes, CVEs, and domains on a page and surfaces real-time risk scores and the evidence behind those scores, arming security teams with the intelligence needed to determine action.

Use case examples include:

Triage and prioritize alerts in seconds without external investigation
It’s been reported that up to 44 percent of security alerts are not investigated, leaving massive gaps in potentially exploited organizational weaknesses. By layering threat intelligence over existing SIEM deployments, security professionals are able to assess alerts that pose the greatest risk and make decisions immediately.

Investigation and confirmation of phishing emails
More than 90 percent of malware is delivered over email, resulting in thousands of malicious emails for an average organization to catch and investigate a year. Express amplifies the power of deployed email security solutions with rich context about IPs and domains associated with suspicious emails.

Act on the vulnerabilities that matter to your organization
In 2018, there were more than 16,500 known security vulnerabilities cataloged — a number that’s continuing to grow annually. With Express, prioritize which vulnerabilities represent imminent or significant organizational risk, with external context about vulnerabilities currently or soon-to-be exploited.

Streamlined decoding of malicious files
The average cost of a malware attack on a company is $2.4 million. For malicious files, security teams need rapid context and enrichment on the indicators to aid response and accelerate remediation. Express speeds up malware analysis and verdicts by providing real-time access to intelligence on associated IOCs.

Analysis of news and data sources
Express instantly identifies and organizes relevant information around hashes, IPs, domains, and vulnerabilities when viewing security content to exponentially increase security information consumption and facilitate action.
