PolySwarm is a threat intelligence marketplace where users upload suspect artifacts (files, URLs, etc.) and receive threat intelligence in return. While legacy multiscanners like VirusTotal, offer a similar service, they often neglect the confidentiality needs of malware analysts, researchers, SOC teams, etc. that want restricted access and/or deeper levels of control on malware-sample sharing.
As the volume and complexity of cyber threats increase, contextualizing and prioritizing incidents becomes critical. In addition to the well reported security shortage of talent in this industry, enterprise SOC teams are required to deal with an ever-growing queue of alerts.
Happy New Year. It’s Steve Bassi here, the founder and CEO of PolySwarm.
