Cyble launches defense threat intelligence solution for law enforcement and government agencies
Cyble, an AI-powered, Y Combinator-backed cyber threat intelligence company that empowers organisations with darkweb and cybercrime monitoring, announced today the availability of its Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) and defence threat intelligence solution.
This is aimed specifically at assisting law enforcement and government agencies in gathering, analysing, and responding to the exposure of extremely sensitive information that may have implications for national security or geopolitical ramifications, enriched with Cyble's SIGINT analysis and research. In this regard, Cyble has collaborated with a number of law enforcement agencies around the world.
Organized cybercriminals and state-backed threat actors have been actively targeting critical national infrastructure in recent years. Recent examples include a ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline in the United States, which threatened to cut off fuel supply to half the country.
Governments and military networks around the world have been hacked, and troves of sensitive data have been exfiltrated by state-backed and financially motivated adversaries. The danger here is twofold. Threat actors primarily target Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) organisations such as power plants, nuclear installations, oil pipelines and refineries, telecom network providers, and transportation networks.
Threat actors are also targeting these organisations' supply chain eco-systems, which typically include technology OEMs, contract manufacturers, strategic R&D partners, and IT service providers. These attacks are carried out with the express purpose of espionage, sabotage, and intellectual property theft.
"As Cyble continues on its journey to empower more organisations with early threat intelligence, strategic collaborations like these play a key role," says Manish Chachada, Co-founder and COO of Cyble. With the exponential increase in cyber-attacks as more organisations and agencies go digital, we aim to provide our government partners with advanced threat monitoring capabilities to provide timely intelligence that they can act on."
Cyble is now providing deep visibility into the darkweb and surface web through CybleHawk to unearth attacks and discover sensitive information before it can be used to compromise state infrastructure, jeopardise national security, or cause diplomatic issues for governments.
Government agencies will now be able to search for and discover sensitive strategic information that could be used to prevent financial fraud, detect sensitive or strategic data exposure, and implement appropriate countermeasures. More information on the capabilities can be found here.
"Cyble is thrilled to be working with law enforcement and government agencies to help them build a more resilient cyberspace presence by providing timely and actionable threat intelligence." "We are excited to drive our research and intelligence capabilities to new heights as we expand our relationship with government and LEA entities," says Beenu Arora, Co-founder and CEO of Cyble.
Cyble is a global threat intelligence SaaS provider that assists enterprises in protecting themselves from cybercrime and dark web exposure. Its primary goal is to give businesses real-time visibility into their digital risk footprint. Cyble, which was backed by Y Combinator as part of the 2021 winter cohort, was also named by Forbes as one of the top 20 Best Cybersecurity Startups to Watch.
