In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Up to 47 percent of organizations use disparate intelligence feeds rather than an integrated user interface, leading to inefficiencies in collection and analysis, inconsistent availability, and difficulties integrating intelligence into security processes. Only Recorded Future integrates information and sources into one display, while customizing information for each customer. This allows clients to view information from high-value sources such as the Verizon Risk Report alongside dark web and technical intel, together with client-specific intelligence. Recorded Future also provides takedown services, allowing customers to request removal of malicious or fraudulent content or domains abusing their company’s brand — an often overlooked aspect of a comprehensive security strategy.
The uniqueness of the company’s technology has also been independently validated third-party sources. Per a 2018 IDC analyst report, Recorded Future’s solution identifies threats 10 times faster than the closest competitor, with 86 percent less downtime and an overall three-year ROI of 284 percent. The report also found that Recorded Future is able to identify 22 percent more threats before impact and helps resolve security incidents 63 percent faster. With Recorded Future, organizations can experience rapid time-to-benefit and dramatically lower risk by leveraging a fully integrated solution that manages the process of collection, analysis, reporting, customization, and integration of threat intelligence.
Similarly, after testing a market range of threat intelligence providers, these cutting-edge services earned Recorded Future a perfect five-star review from prominent security outlet SC Magazine, with the final verdict reading, “this is a must-have in your organization.” The product reviewers identified zero weaknesses and concluded that, “The fact that so many trust and refer to this company’s data and research speaks volumes to the benefits of integrating Recorded Future into a threat intelligence program… [Recorded Future] continues to show leadership in the space, earning our top spot as an SC Lab Approved solution.”
Recorded Future delivers threat intelligence to small and large organizations using a broad range of data from the open, deep, and dark web. Using machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), Recorded Future automatically transforms raw data into real-time threat intelligence, making it easier for security teams and businesses to act quickly to protect themselves. Recorded Future targets more than 750,000 sources with 20 billion indexed facts, doing the work of 9,000 analysts, working 8-hour shifts, 5-days a week for 52 weeks per year. The increase in productivity has helped customers realize efficiency gains worth an annual average of about $806,000 per organization and avoid an average of $1,033,300 in potential
losses from breaches.
Unlike other products, Recorded Future also provides the only unified threat intelligence solution on the market, identifying threats to organizations 10 times faster with a 32 percent cost reduction by providing centralization, collaboration, and customization of proprietary and internal threat data with external threat intelligence. The solution allows for unprecedented analysis of the broadest and most comprehensive set of open and closed feeds, internal risk lists, and internally generated analyst notes — all in one view.
Recorded Future’s technology partner ecosystem also allows for customized customer intelligence to be integrated across security technologies, like SIEM, ticketing, etc., for improved vulnerability management, security operations, incident response and more. As a result, customers can export or share reports across analysts, or make use of an API for even greater flexibility.
In addition, Insikt Group – the company’s renowned research team – is considered one of the best in the industry. Comprised of intelligence experts from a range of government agencies, Insikt Group serves Recorded Future’s customers each day while also producing groundbreaking research.
