Flashpoint Strengthens Intelligence Platform with New Dashboards and Analytics, Expanded Collections and Tailored Alerting by Industry

Company Significantly Expands Use-Case Driven Business Risk Intelligence (BRI) Offerings

NEW YORK, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Flashpoint, the global leader in Business Risk Intelligence (BRI), today announced new innovations and enhancements that help multiple teams bolster cybersecurity, confront fraud, detect insider threats, enhance corporate and physical security, and address third-party risk.

The new innovations and enhancements strengthen Flashpoint Intelligence Platform, which grants access to the company’s archive of finished intelligence reports, data from illicit forums, marketplaces, chat services, paste sites, technical data, card and account shops, and vulnerabilities, in a finished intelligence experience. The platform scales Flashpoint’s internal team of specialized, multilingual intelligence analysts’ ability to quickly provide responses to customers.

“As a long-time Flashpoint customer, I have seen many iterations of the company’s platform, technology, and collections,” said Jim Nelms, Chief Information Security Officer at LabCorp. “This is by far the largest leap that the Flashpoint team has taken in terms of expanding its datasets and making intelligence more consumable, and it did so while holding true to its vision of bringing BRI to diverse teams across an enterprise.”

The platform now features new dashboards and analytics, expanded datasets, chat services and communities, and industry alerting that simplify an organization’s consumption and automation of intelligence. The enhancements include:

Account Shops: Customers can identify their organization’s compromised accounts found for sale in illicit account shops, providing an ability to reduce the risk of employees’ or customers’ login details being used in credential stuffing attacks.

Card Shops: Collections of stolen credit card data found in illicit high-end credit card shops, compromised from a variety of operations — including dumps from point-of-sale (POS) compromises, or credit cards from card-not-present (CNP) transactions.

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs)Prioritize the vulnerabilities that matter most with access to the latest CVEs, as well as CVEs discussed by threat actors as observed by Flashpoint intelligence analysts with incorporated access to MITRE ATT&CK and NVD data.

Dashboards: Comprehensive view of data measured against Flashpoint collections, most relevant to an organization; from monitoring the latest credit card leaks, to keeping track of the most active CVEs, our dashboards provide a one-pane view into information and data to help better mitigate vulnerability exposure and risk to your organization.

Expanded Chat Services: Flashpoint’s Telegram collections now allow customers to view critical media included in chat services messages, such as audio, images, documents, and other file types, including malware samples and technical data, providing more context to chat conversations and additional intelligence for research purposes. Collections are also expanding to include illicit discussions and media on multiple chat services.

Expanded Communities: Flashpoint is expanding its coverage of illicit discussions in communities such as 4Chan, 8Chan, and Dread, providing users with additional context as to how threats move across the web.

Industry Alerting: Based on multi-language keyword patterns developed, curated, and maintained by our Intelligence team, this product provides customers tactical information derived from threat actor conversations that are relevant to users in their respective industries and industries they want to monitor. In addition to Flashpoint’s tailored industry alerting for financial services, retail, legal and healthcare, the company has added patterns that find signal in the noise for users who are in, or care about, the technology, insurance, and telecommunications industries.

“We’ve listened to the Flashpoint community and really focused on creating features and capabilities that help address our customers’ most important use cases,” said Josh Lefkowitz, Flashpoint CEO. “As a result, we’ve expanded our data collections, refined our intelligence, and delivered analytics in ways that help our users detect, understand, and mitigate the threats they face without overwhelming them with noise.”

Flashpoint’s continued innovation around collections also supports its one-of-a-kind Flashpoint Collaboration (FPCollab), a TLP Amber information sharing community comprised exclusively of leading intelligence experts across 20 industries.

“When a proof-of-concept (PoC) code for a high-impact vulnerability was released, one of our analysts immediately notified FPCollab, sparking a discussion in which members reciprocated by providing their own PoC code or recommended mitigations,” Lefkowitz continued. “FPCollab members then synergized to fine tune the PoC code, better understand how the vulnerability could be exploited, mitigate the risk it posed to their network environments, and build upon each other’s findings.”

Industry research also indicates that specific use cases are driving purchasing decisions around threat intelligence for enterprises.

In its recent Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services (February 2019), “Gartner continues to strongly advocate on use cases as being the primary outcome that end users must pursue, not a specific source or technology. Pragmatically, use cases and the outcomes they deliver are setting the primary influential direction of this market.” 1

Colruyt Group Selects Juniper Networks to Support its Digital Transformation

Network Underpins Fast Business Growth for Retail Leader

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced that Colruyt Group, one of the largest retailers in Belgium and France, has deployed Juniper Networks’ solutions to improve its data connectivity in response to exponential growth in network traffic.

Colruyt Group consists of more than 40 brands for consumers and businesses, including food and non-food retail, fuel, wholesale and food services. Established more than 80 years ago, it operates 553 of its own stores, supplies 581 independent shopkeepers in Belgium and France and also offers its products via e-commerce sites. The group owns the BIO-planet, Collishop, Cru, dreambaby, DreamLand, OKay, SPAR Belgium, MyUnderwear24, NewStory, Newpharma and ZEB brands and operates a network of DATS24 fuel stations throughout Belgium.

Colruyt must ensure that it provides quality products and convenient services at competitive prices to protect and grow its leadership status. Ensuring the smooth operation of mission-critical applications such as stock controls and technological infrastructure that underpin its customer-facing services is the key to maintaining happy and loyal customers.

Facing a rapid increase in demand for its products and services across the company’s portfolio, Colruyt needed to upgrade its WAN and LAN to ensure that it could respond effectively to the growth in network activity.

News highlights:

To maximize bandwidth and reduce latency while ensuring network security and stability, Colruyt invested in a range of Juniper solutions to:

  • Support fast growth and seasonal shopping spikes:  Juniper Networks® EX Series Ethernet Switches that are deployed in a Virtual Chassis topology with EX Series switches or QFX Series data center switches. L3 aggregation gives Colruyt the ability to add new nodes into the campus network quickly. This extensible configuration provides Colruyt with the flexibility and agility to meet any peaks in traffic caused by further growth or seasonal shopping periods.
  • Provide more reliable point of sale:  The Virtual Chassis capabilities offered by the EX Series Ethernet Switches and QFX Series Switches means in-store POS (point of sale) and tablet devices will be much less likely to go offline, even at peak times. By moving to a Virtual Chassis for the switches that handle all store-related traffic, Colruyt is able to simplify its network topology. This layer of virtualization drives a better customer experience.
  • Deliver scalable internet connections: Colruyt uses MX104 routers as peering devices with the ISP. Powered by the Junos operating system and the programmable Trio Chipset, Juniper’s MX104 Universal Routing Platform is a modular, highly redundant and compact platform offering advanced routing, switching, security and service features.
  • Secure its data and infrastructure:  Colruyt implemented the Juniper Networks® SRX5400 Services Gateway, providing the retailer with a scalable, resilient firewall, equipped with integrated threat intelligence, an intrusion prevention system and a powerful routing engine. This feature helps Colruyt protect its own infrastructure and sensitive customer data from cybersecurity threats.
  • Ensure reliable and secure store connectivity: Colruyt deployed the Juniper Networks® SRX300 Services Gateway as its branch solution for Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) for its site connectivity.
  • The company is now on its way to upgrading its network bandwidth to 40 Gbps.
  • Colruyt selected Juniper Networks’ partner Securelink, a leading information consulting company specializing in network and security, to design and deliver Colruyt’s solution.

Supporting Quotes

“Colruyt recognized that our existing infrastructure was not equipped to handle the growth that we expect to see in the coming years. The limited throughput of the older switches that were still installed in most of our stores and the existing Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) architecture of our network were beginning to cause bottlenecks. Network saturations would occasionally overload switches and take locations offline, potentially causing inconvenience for our customers. Juniper Networks’ solutions enable us to reduce the risk of downtime and increase our network availability from 10 Gbps to 40 Gbps, driving customer satisfaction and loyalty across our stores and online sites.”

  • Wim Derijnck, Team Manager, Network Solutions, Colruyt

“Customers expect a smooth shopping experience without delays or risk. This means that companies undergoing digital transformation have to deploy the right network to underpin every aspect, from CCTV cameras to in-store POS and e-commerce sites. As a long-established retailer, Colruyt has moved with the times to understand the value of simplified engineering in its network, enabled by Juniper technology, to deliver innovation, performance and security.”

  • James Morgan, Vice President of Enterprise, EMEA, Juniper Networks
