Risk Based Security Announces New Integration with Recorded Future for Intelligence-Driven Vulnerability Management

Provides richer, more actionable vulnerability intelligence to improve risk mitigation

RICHMOND, VA, May 1, 2019 — Risk Based Security, Inc., a provider of detailed information and analysis on Vulnerability Intelligence, Data Breaches, and Vendor Risk Ratings, today announced a new partnership with Recorded Future, the leading threat intelligence company, to help joint customers more effectively identify and prioritize the vulnerabilities they should mitigate.

Risk Based Security’s VulnDB is the most comprehensive and timely vulnerability intelligence solution available.  It provides actionable information about the latest in security vulnerabilities, both in end-user software and the third-party libraries or dependencies that help build applications.  It enables security professionals to quickly and thoroughly analyze and respond to possible threats to their organization, helping safeguard them against the considerable costs and damage, to both data and reputation, that may result from an unmanaged vulnerability. The integration of the best-in-class vulnerability data from VulnDB into the Recorded Future analysis platform enables security teams to not only prioritize the vulnerabilities needing mitigation more effectively but also enrich and enhance their ability to respond to indicators of compromise.

The Recorded Future Connect partner program is laser focused on providing intelligence that helps teams make faster, more confident decisions by integrating rich threat intelligence into all security processes. Today, partners represent leading SIEM, incident response, ticketing, link analysis, security infrastructure, security orchestration and automation, vulnerability management, and threat intelligence platform (TIP) solutions.

“In 2018 alone, more than 22,000 vulnerabilities were added to the VulnDB database – more than any security team could manually identify and analyze on their own, never mind the actual patching and mitigation when a company is at risk. We’re proud to partner with Risk Based Security and believe the goal they’re working toward is foundational to cybersecurity teams’ ability to protect their organizations.” – Glenn Wong, Director of Product Management and Technology Partnerships, Recorded Future

VulnDB contains over 67,000 additional vulnerabilities not found in the frequently relied-upon Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database, and a much higher degree of information for each vulnerability, providing the richest, most complete vulnerability intelligence available.  VulnDB helps customers better address points of risk across their organization – from application development and IT infrastructure management to security operations, vendor risk management, and procurement.

“Better data matters when it comes to effectively prioritizing and remediating vulnerabilities,” said Jake Kouns, Chief Information Security Officer at Risk Based Security. “With the VulnDB Intelligence Card extension for Recorded Future, our joint customers can access VulnDB’s extensive vulnerability intelligence from within the Recorded Future platform to provide additional valuable context and better respond to growing threats.”
