Mandiant has launched Mandiant Advantage, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed for security response teams.
The company behind the software said that the new solution is the first SaaS offering in its portfolio. It also declares that the solution will combine threat intelligence gathered by Mandiant along with data from cyber incident response engagement.
“For years, Mandiant Threat Intelligence has led the industry with the highest quality reporting that comprehensively details the threat environment, enabling organizations to prioritize threats and manage cyber security risk,” said Sandra Joyce, Executive Vice President of Mandiant Threat Intelligence at FireEye. “We are now making emerging intelligence accessible to all defenders as it is discovered, regardless of the technology they have deployed. Now customers of all sizes have unprecedented access to the depth and breadth of threat intelligence Mandiant offers, appropriate to their budget and unique needs.”
This new solution caters to real-time information collected by approximately 300 analysts and researchers.
“By extending this timely look into what’s happening across multiple Mandiant frontlines, organizations can more easily prioritize the threats that matter to them most right now,” the company said.
As time passes, people will see the development of more and more products that will “augment and automate global security teams with controls-agnostic, actionable breach, adversary, operational and machine intelligence data.”
The upgrades expected include checks for email filter rules, database configuration, control on operating systems, and malware analysis as a service.
Now, what is Mandiant Advantage?
The suite named Threat Intelligence is subscription-based, and it is priced depending on the size of the organization signing up. Also, the solution comprises a browser plugin and API integration.
“Lots of vendors say that they have the leading threat intelligence, however, the focus is typically on inputs,” said Chris Kissel, Research Director, Worldwide Security and amp; Trust Products at IDC. “Mandiant Advantage is a divergence from the traditional path. By consolidating expertise backed products and services under Mandiant, customers get a vendor agnostic view into the effectiveness of outcomes. This pairing makes Mandiant truly differentiated.”
The Mandiant Solutions were launched in April 2020 to streamline FireEye and Mandiant’s portfolio. After that, several branches of the tree were added, namely, Mandiant Security Validation, Mandiant Consulting, FireEye Threat Intelligence, FireEye Expertise On Demand, and Mandiant Managed Defense. All of these solutions aim to improve cybersecurity offerings.
