Enzoic & ThreatQuotient unite to tackle Dark Web threats
Mon, 29th Jan 2024

In a strategic move geared towards early detection and mitigation of online threats, cybersecurity firm Enzoic has announced its partnership with ThreatQuotient, a reputable security operations platform provider. ThreatQuotient will leverage Enzoic's Dark Web monitoring abilities to identify exposed credentials, enabling prompt action at the earliest signs of compromise.

The Dark Web, a notorious hub for unscrupulous activities, continues to pose a significant threat to digital security globally. Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) indicates that stolen credentials, readily accessible on this network, serve as a predominant threat vector involved in 80% of the breaches studied. Understanding this, Enzoic brings to the table a dynamically refreshed database that helps businesses detect exposure in real-time, lock down any vulnerable accounts, and alert the end-users promptly, thereby curtailing damage.

Through the collaboration with ThreatQuotient, these insights will now be a part of the ThreatQ Platform, presenting any detected exposures instantly in its intuitive, graphical dashboard. The integration helps companies stay ahead of potential threats exploiting exposed credentials.

Founder and CTO of Enzoic, Mike Wilson commented on the partnership. "User credentials continue to be among hackers' most sought-after targets. With Enzoic's threat intelligence, ThreatQuotient customers can fight back and take swift action as soon as exposure is detected. The ThreatQ Platform is already a valuable resource for security operations to become more data-driven, efficient, and effective. Our Dark Web insights serve to broaden the scope of potential threats that can be identified."

The integration utilises Enzoic's Exposure API that monitors potential user and domain exposures on the Dark Web. This not only enables organisations to ascertain when credentials are compromised but also ensures alerts are dynamically updated, providing ThreatQuotient's customers the ability to take prompt action based on the incisive threat intelligence. It's important to note that this integration does not necessitate organisations to send any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from their systems, and any query data is not stored by Enzoic.

Haig Colter, Director of Alliances at ThreatQuotient, expressed his perspective on the partnership. "We’re always looking for ways to strengthen the ThreatQ Platform in response to today's dynamically changing cybersecurity environment. Our partnership with Enzoic gives us vital insights into sensitive data on the Dark Web, enabling our customers to act before these exposures can negatively impact the business."
