Identity management

Threater, an active defense cybersecurity platform provider, has rebranded itself to better align with its strategy to fill the gaps in modern security architectures.

The company, formerly known as ThreatBlockR, said its reworked platform now fully automates the discovery, enforcement, and analysis of cyber threats on a massive scale. Its strategy and focus is on blocking known threats and also providing a suite of products and services aimed at arming organizations against the evolving cybersecurity landscape.

“Security teams are increasingly coming to understand the costs of unmanaged and undetected cyber security threats,” said Brian McMahon, Threater chief executive. “Through our relationships with our global customer base and industry-leading partners, we have the experience and are uniquely positioned to help organizations block all known threats entering and exiting the network and now also mitigate the unknown threats inside their network.”

Free Product Line Launches

In addition to the corporate rebranding, Threater is also launching a new "freemium" product line, an expanded Cyber Marketplace, and a new brand for its enforcement engine.

Threater said that these rebranded solutions will help organizations defend against cyber attacks:

  • Threater Collect allows companies to aggregate and manage cyber intelligence in the cloud and easily export it to their existing tools. It is available to the public at no cost. Additional premium cyber intelligence subscriptions are available for Collect customers.
  • Threater Cyber Marketplace expands offerings allows users to acquire and deploy additional premium third-party cyber intelligence feeds and lists. This marketplace is available to all Threater customers at any level of service.

  • Within its Services Marketplace offering, Threater offers their flagship firewall assessment service (Discover), as well as exclusive Advanced list management that includes dedicated SOC-as-a-Service hours and white glove support tiers. More services are slated for the Cyber Services Marketplace in the future.
  • Threater Enforce delivers an updated user experience. Enforce users can autonomously leverage cyber intelligence data and remove every known threat in real-time at scale across an organization’s entire network.
