Blueliv announces UK expansion and calls for collaborative approach in the fight against cybercrime
12 June 2018 – Barcelona, Spain – Blueliv, a leading enterprise-class cyberthreat intelligence company, today announced its expansion in the UK with a call for radical socialisation in the industry to profit all cybersecurity practitioners. Marking a 2018 Series-A investment of €4million and recent 50% year-over-year growth, Blueliv’s approach is founded on new collaborative models to tackle the industry-wide pain points of siloed security practices, information overload and a lack of resource.
Blueliv has been capitalising on growing customer demand for cyberthreat intelligence worldwide and is expanding in the UK market with real momentum as more enterprises focus on cyberthreat intelligence as part of their defence strategy. Blueliv’s unique pay-as-you-need modular offering means it must collaborate with end-users to define a suitable plan. Rather than competing with one-size-fits-all solutions, Blueliv’s Threat Compass modules are relevant, targeted and aligned to specific intelligence requirements. This collaborative model has lent itself to a channel program, launched earlier this year, where managed security service providers (MSSP) and value-added-reseller (VAR) partners strengthen their own professional services offering, with all the heavy lifting done by Blueliv’s solution.
Daniel Solís, CEO and founder Blueliv, said, “To form the most effective deep defence lines against attackers, a hive mind of security professionals providing a collaborative approach is infinitely better than siloing ourselves. This doctrine informs all the work we do: in product development, delivering user-friendly intelligence through different modules; in our business strategy, forming technical alliances and channel partnerships; and our intelligence reporting, providing tangible value to all levels in an organisation.”
In line with the launch, Blueliv has announced its new report on The Credential Theft Ecosystem. The report provides expert insight into the lifecycle of the compromised credential, offering valuable guidance to all levels, from CISOs seeking to protect their business to analysts requiring Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) to shrink their attack surface.
The report covers:
- Illicit tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) used by cybercriminals to gather credentials;
- Why credentials are targeted, how they’re used and their value in illegal marketplaces;
- Methods used to filter, extract and validate credentials;
- The ways criminals profit from credential theft and how various industries are affected.
This intelligence is part of an ongoing effort to share practical guidance, helping security teams of all sizes access relevant information, implement its value and improve their security posture. Socialising cybersecurity means encouraging parity and fighting cybercrime collaboratively and more effectively.
Blueliv’s collaboration doctrine aims to strengthen the cybersecurity industry and help organisations protect themselves from the outside in. Its unique modular Threat Compass solution is built from a customisable group of targeted intelligence modules, radically reducing attack success rates and improving incident response performance. Blueliv’s in-house analyst team is bolstered by the Blueliv Threat Exchange Network, designed to encourage members to share news and IOCs, grant access to Blueliv’s proprietary elastic sandbox for malware analysis, and offer a live cyberthreat map for tracking crimeservers and malicious IPs.
