Seerist, Carahsoft Deliver Public Sector Threat Intelligence

Seerist, which specializes in augmented analytics for intelligence, threat and security, and IT solutions provider Carahsoft are working together to deliver threat and risk intelligence to public sector organizations.

With the partnership, Carahsoft will serve as Seerist's Master Government Aggregator, the companies said. As such, Carahsoft's reseller partners can offer Seerist's threat and risk intelligence solution to the public sector.

Seerist Blends Adaptive AI with Localized Geopolitical Risk Expertise

Public sector organizations can use Seerist's threat and risk intelligence solution to collect and analyze data from millions of open-source intelligence sources and AI and human analysis, the company said. The solution uses AI algorithms and information gathered by more than 200 geopolitical and security expert threat analysts to provide threat intelligence and insights.

Furthermore, Seerist provides insights into regional and in-country stability and global geopolitical risk, the company noted. It also enables public-sector organizations to analyze data trends and produce insights that they can use to predict potential future threats.

Seerist Provides County-Level Risk Assessments

The Carahsoft partnership comes after Seerist in February 2023 started offering AI-based county-level risk assessments to help organizations "make informed decisions based on accurate, real-time data and analysis on a wide range of risks," the company indicated.

Seerist's county-level risk assessments leverage data from government agencies, local news outlets, social media and other sources, the company noted. They enable organizations to monitor and act on changing risk indicators and protect their people, operations and supply chains against cyberattacks.
