The Telegram messaging app is used by over 200 million people around the world and has proven to be a great communication vehicle for individuals and companies. Unfortunately, Telegram is also an attractive target for bad actors looking to exploit the platform and people. From cryptocurrency stealers and miners, Telegram has seen its fair share of scams.
Today we are pleased to announce that Basis Technology has become a PolySwarm customer. Basis Technology’s incident response software, Cyber Triage™, plays an important role in the fight against cybercrime; PolySwarm will now help enhance this critical technology.
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.

We are happy to join forces with PolySwarm along with other top security vendors across the globe to deliver the best tools and services to fight cybercrime.” - Michael Novofastovsky, co-founder and CTO at Quttera
