GALWAY, IRELAND, June 7, 2022 – Siren, a leading provider of Investigative Intelligence analytics, and Q6 Cyber, a leading provider of cyber threat intelligence , today announced the launch of a jointly developed critical infrastructure cyber defence solution which empowers governments to effectively monitor threats at a national level.
Today’s cyber threat landscape is at an all-time high. As critical infrastructure of advanced economies increasingly become digital, cyber threats becomes ever more prevalent and pose a great menace to governments. Cyber defense is now a critical component of national security defense and is a top priority for many countries.
Siren and Q6 Cyber’s solution has been developed to counter and proactively eliminate cyber threats. It combines Q6’s unique and proprietary cyber threat intelligence sets that serve as powerful early warning signals with Siren’s unique threat investigation capability to visualize and investigate such signals. These early warning signals, akin to looking over the shoulder of cyber threat actors, allow users to detect and quickly remediate network intrusions, system or data breaches, and insider threats with great speed and precision. Many governments are still struggling to monitor the state of their critical infrastructure cyber defenses. Solving this problem at scale is a big data problem.
The collaboration between the two companies enables national governments to monitor cyber health by industry sector and specific networks or entities. The Siren platform pushes forward what is achievable in the investigative world with capabilities which have been developed in line with rapidly changing investigators’ requirements to generate insights at machine speed and scale.
John Randles, CEO of Siren, said: “Q6 Cyber is a great partner that has deep domain experience and can provide very early warning on cyber attacks. This jointly developed solution will open up an array of new opportunities for both of us and enable governments to monitor and protect critical infrastructure in a very structured manner .”
“We are excited to partner with Siren to tackle critical infrastructure cyber risk using a truly novel approach” said Eli Dominitz, CEO of Q6 Cyber. Adding, “Our solution will enable the public and private sectors to proactively identify and mitigate in the very early stages cyber threats and attacks targeting critical infrastructure, resulting in fewer cyber incidents. Moreover, this solution will become an important element of holistic national security and national cyber defense programs by bolstering security and resiliency of critical infrastructure.”
The Siren platform is used worldwide as a key component in investigative solutions, search and discovery efforts, and as an enhancement to Elasticsearch implementations. It makes domain experts more self-sufficient from IT than ever before, allowing them to ingest, model and investigate correlations without coding support.
Q6 Cyber’s diverse team of security and intelligence professionals brings a depth of expertise attained over decades of experience in US and Israeli intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Its cutting-edge technology monitors the “Digital Underground”, a vast universe where cybercriminals operate and provides early warning signals of network intrusions, cyber attacks, and data breaches.
