product review CYJAX INTELLIGENCE PLATFORM The cyber threat landscape is evolving at such a pace that businesses need to be even more inventive in protecting confidential data. In many cases, threat updates and signatures provided by security partners aren't enough and now require a blended approach. The CYjAX Intelligence Platform is designed to work with existing security solutions where it enhances them with brand-specific intelligence on cyber threats. It doesn't require additional onsite hardware or software and presents all its findings in a customisable web portal. Created by career intelligence and technical experts in 2012, CYjAX automates the collection of threat intelligence information to enable advanced monitoring and analysis capabilities. A key priority is providing factual intelligence on the latest threats, including those from data breaches, cloud computing, social media, mainstream news and, yes, even the darknet. CYjAX has a sharp focus on protecting Pii (personally identifiable information) - something many financial institutions are failing to do. Only recently, a well-known bank suffered an unprecedented attack on its online services, resulting in a £2.5m loss. It got off very lightly, but won't be so fortunate when the GDPR (general data protection regulation) comes into force in 2018, as it calls for punitive fines. We found the CYjAX web portal to be very intuitive, as it's designed to present only those findings that match your requirements. The home page opens with a wealth of real-time report modules using widgets to provide information on areas such as live tweets, news feeds, phishing campaigns, darknet marketplaces and those of particular interest to law enforcement agencies. Along with a report overview, the home page provides a daily brief which filters out information not relevant to your industry vertical. This provides handy updates on your company's sphere of operations and clicking on an entry brings up a full report. The portal can be used to view general information about these topics, but comes into its own when you use keyword datastreams. These describe anything from a brand, a person's name or domain to an IP address, email account, credit card number or third party. Once keywords have been added, CYjAX starts sending newly discovered intelligence on them to the relevant dashboard modules. You can also subscribe to datastreams and receive regular email updates on them when new information has been discovered. The dashboard provides full search facilities for all the intelligence datastores, making it easy to home in on an area of interest. The results can be refined, as the search page allows you to pick a specific datastore to interrogate, with options including darknet forums, web pages and marketplaces. The new DataLeak Datastore feature will prove invaluable, as it already contains details of around 2.5 billion compromised email credentials. The datastore can be searched and, once you've advised CYjAX which domains belong to you, its reports will provide information about data leaks specific to your organisation. Called Pastes, the second data leak module lists data files pasted into web sites that contain Pii. Selecting an entry reveals its entire contents, and CYjAX's API service allows this information to be extracted and used by your resident systems to improve their security posture. CYjAX Intellimetrics provides customisable dashboards with graphical views of selected threat intelligence data. These can be viewed over a specific period or in real-time, allowing businesses to identify and track threat behaviour patterns. Enterprises need to up their game, if they want to stay ahead of the latest security threats. The CYjAX Intelligence Platform is a sophisticated solution that works in tandem with existing security products and delivers a critical defence layer that protects your all-important brand reputation.
