For more than 10 years, the Recorded Future team has worked toward turning its vision into a reality — use technology to make the world a safer place. What began as a patented technology leveraging machine learning to analyze and process massive amounts of information available on the internet, evolved into an indispensable cybersecurity solution in the form of threat intelligence. Security practitioners rely on Recorded Future for intelligence they can trust in order to effectively manage risk.

“On behalf of our entire team, I am honored and delighted to receive this recognition for our contributions to the threat intelligence and security communities. Receiving these awards validates our mission of robust threat intelligence with tangible impact in a pivotal year for the organization. Together, with our customers and partners, we’re working to stay one step ahead of threats from nation-states and cybercriminals.” — Christopher Ahlberg, Co-Founder and CEO, Recorded Future

Recorded Future’s unique technology collects, processes, and analyzes vast amounts of data to deliver relevant cyber threat insights in real time. The company’s solution aggregates this rich intelligence with other threat data sources, layering on expert human analysis and empowering security teams to quickly collaborate across the organization to protect against attacks. The result is finished intelligence when and where security professionals need it most, including rapid integration with existing security solutions.

Accelerating Security Through Continued Innovation
This year, Recorded Future has reached important milestones both as a leading cybersecurity company and in terms of product innovation. Following the company’s May acquisition by New York-based private equity firm Insight Partners for $780 million, Recorded Future has released several product and partner enhancements.

Highlights include:

  • Recorded Future released a full integration with Splunk® Phantom® and has built four core playbooks in conjunction with new high-throughput API capabilities to help provide seamless access to best-in-class threat intelligence to maximize security automation effectiveness.
  • Recorded Future released high-fidelity packages of indicators related to threat actors, tools, campaigns, and techniques to assist in proactively blocking threats from entering organizations’ environments.
  • Recorded Future Express — the company’s browser extension that layers security intelligence over any web-based environment — was made available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

“We’re thrilled to name Recorded Future a winner as both the Next-Generation Security Company of the Year and Best Product: Threat Intelligence in our Global Awards program. They won these awards because they pioneered security intelligence — an innovative approach to defeating the next generation of cybercriminals,” — Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine

Accelerating Security Through Continued Innovation
Recorded Future detects the reporting of new vulnerabilities, exploits, indicators of compromise (IOCs), exposed company assets, and threat actors targeting organizations and industries. It captures and structures this information — billions of indexed facts linked to sources and authors, and across all languages — for security and risk analysis.

In an IDC White Paper sponsored by Recorded Future, “Organizations React to Security Threats More Efficiently and Cost Effectively with Recorded Future,” IDC concluded that Recorded Future enabled security teams to identify threats to their organizations 10 times faster, while helping to resolve security incidents 63 percent faster when they do occur.

Today, it would take nearly 9,000 analysts, working eight hours a day, five days a week, for 52 weeks per year, to process the same amount of security event data that Recorded Future’s machine analytics can process in the same time frame.
