Fidelis Cybersecurity launches threat research service

Fidelis Cybersecurity has launched Threat Research as a Service (TRaaS), a subscription-based offering which provides access to the Fidelis Threat Research Team of experts for tailored threat intelligence and countermeasures.

“With the maturation of threats, many of the security professionals I have spoken to have recognised the need to go beyond global intelligence feeds based on static indicators of compromise,” explains Danny Pickens, director of threat research, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Instead they want customised intelligence analysis and reporting that is directly related to the complex threats they are facing.”

Research shows that most organisations are challenged with finding and cultivating cybersecurity and threat intelligence expertise, creating a major operational hurdle to conduct in-depth research and analysis. “Threat Research as a Service is our answer to this issue,” explains Pickens.

As part of the new subscription-based model, Fidelis will provide, at client request, Fidelis Intelligence Services, Malware Services, and/or Threat Research Consulting Services for malware analysis and reversing, intelligence briefs, and threat hunting engagements and workshops.

Subscribing to Fidelis TRaaS will provide customers with the capability of in-depth research and analysis to produce intelligence reporting, analyse or reverse engineer malware samples, and produce countermeasures necessary to detect and stop adversary attacks and exploitation. This service provides the capabilities that support the following customer missions:

  • Threat Intelligence: Intelligence concerning Threat Actors, on-going campaigns, shifting adversary tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), and enrichment of observed indicators of compromise (IOC)
  • Malware Threats: Static and Dynamic malware analysis and malware reverse engineering on client submitted samples
  • Countermeasures: Create custom and targeted Fidelis rules for Fidelis Network and/or Fidelis Endpoint
  • Consultation: On-site or remote threat hunting workshops, custom threat briefings for security personnel or executive staff, and Fidelis product health checks

“We have formed a highly-skilled group of cyber warriors from the DoD and US intelligence communities who deeply understand the offensive and defensive sides of security,” says Nick Lantuh, president and CEO, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “Now our customers can directly tap into that expertise to augment their security programs and enhance their security posture through finished intelligence and countermeasures tailored to their unique environment.”
