Website Solutions Circle Graph Ver4 15 Aug2022

Your company’s cybersecurity is only as strong as its weakest link, and that weak link comes from your third-party vendor or supplier. Digital supply chain attacks have increased by 650% in the last year, which is why your organization must be alerted to the cyber threats faced by your vendors and suppliers to successfully manage and secure your digital supply chain.


The Intel 471 TITAN platform continuously monitors the cyber underground, offering high-resolution visibility into your third-party risk and continuously monitors the cyber underground for threats emanating from your digital supply chain while providing near-real-time alerts of malicious activity and scams. This includes the buying and selling of your confidential and sensitive information such as: financial and crypto records, customer and employee data, and intellectual property.

THE INTEL 471 TITAN PLATFORM HELPS SECURE YOUR DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN BY:

  • Observing where third-party risk threats emanate from and how threat actors communicate and buy/sell sensitive information in closed groups in the cybercriminal underground
  • Proactively identifying and addressing potential weak links, by requiring vulnerable or affected third parties to implement new controls to help stop malware, identify theft, crypting and more
  • Gaining constant monitoring and near-real-time alerting of relevant malicious activity that could impact your supply chain

Weak security postures of vendors and suppliers are often the starting points to a major incident or ransomware event for most organizations.
