In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• Dashboard control isn't a new concept but a single view across the cloud, on premise and everything in between can be elusive in security products. ThreatConnect's new built-in and customizable dashboards help users easily visualize data that displays the impact of their security efforts and gain a better understanding of the threats their organizations face. By viewing the built-in dashboards or creating their own and adding custom metrics - even from outside of ThreatConnect - analysts are able to make critical security operations decisions and act to mitigate them quickly.
• While many of today's threat intelligence platforms enable some orchestration, ThreatConnect introduced platform-level multi-environment orchestration to the industry - allowing "Playbooks" (which enable automation of almost any cybersecurity task) to run across multiple environments including cloud, office networks, or virtual. This first of its kind security orchestration capability provides organizations the flexibility and scalability they need to unify their security management across their entire digital business and take action seamlessly across networks. Multi-environment orchestration is especially beneficial to MSSPs because of its ability to enable multi-tenancy without creating repetitive tasks. Providers' ability to manage security workflows for multiple customer environments from a single platform with ThreatConnect is unmatched.
• ThreatConnect's Research Team is an elite group of globally acknowledged cybersecurity analysts that consistently put forward news making intelligence. The team comprises some of the industry's best, arising from intelligence agencies and the most informed analyst circles, and are informing the ThreatConnect platform and the entire cybersecurity community about emerging threats. The team curates an intelligence source, TC Identify™, which provides vetted, actionable threat intelligence compiled from more than 100 open source feeds and crowdsourced intelligence from within our dozens of communities, our own ThreatConnect Research Team, and the option to add intelligence from any of our TC Exchange™ partners.
