Interpres security platform real-time threat exposure management

Interpres Security Unveils Major Platform Updates to Combat Cyber Threats

Organizations face an increasing array of sophisticated cyber threats. Unfortunately, traditional methods of managing cybersecurity defenses often fall short, leading to critical gaps in protection.

Interpres Security aims to tackle this pressing issue with its innovative platform, designed to optimize defensive capabilities and automate alignment with the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

Recently, I had an opportunity to sit down with Nick Lantuh, co-founder and CEO, and Michael Jenks, co-founder and CTO, to talk about significant updates to the Interpres Security platform and walk through a demo of its ability to help organizations effectively manage threat exposure.

The Cybersecurity Challenge

Cybersecurity defenses have long struggled with fragmentation and inefficiency. Organizations rely on various tools and technologies—such as vulnerability scanners, SIEMs (Security Information and Event Management systems), and EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) networks—to protect their assets.

However, these tools often operate in silos, leading to misconfigurations, coverage gaps, and a lack of cohesive strategy. Additionally, traditional approaches to vulnerability management and threat detection are manual and labor-intensive, relying heavily on spreadsheets and isolated analyses.

“We set out to fix this underlying problem in the industry,” declared Lantuh, “Which is there isn’t a solution that provides a holistic view that continuously does two things: identifies and prioritizes the misconfigurations, coverage gaps and tool deficiencies on one side——and simultaneously looking at the threats and the outside attack vectors that are coming at you that want to target organizations that look and smell and feel like you.”

Interpres Security addresses these challenges by providing a unified, continuous view of an organization’s defensive readiness. By integrating threat intelligence into existing security stacks, Interpres helps organizations understand asset exposure, prioritize threats, and optimize their defenses against evolving adversarial tactics.

Interpres Platform: A Holistic Solution

Interpres Security’s platform is built to operationalize threat intelligence, defense surface management and attack surface management. The solution continuously analyzes the dynamic relationships between defensive capabilities, adversarial threats, assets, and vulnerabilities, offering a comprehensive view of an organization’s security posture that offers a prioritized list of actions to help harden your defenses.

This holistic approach allows organizations to identify and prioritize misconfigurations, coverage gaps, and tool deficiencies, ensuring a proactive stance against potential threats.

Jenks walked me through a demonstration of the Interpres platform to highlight its capabilities, as well as its ease of use.

He explained, “Interpres is a threat-centric platform. Everything begins with establishing a threat profile for the customer.”

He then walked through the process of configuring the profile with key factors like industry vertical, size of the organization, geographic regions the company does business in, types of data the company protects internally or on behalf of customers, and more. Once completed, this profile gives Interpres valuable context through which to view emerging threat intelligence and evaluate the security posture.

Key Features of the Interpres Platform

  1. Integration with Existing Tools: Interpres seamlessly integrates with existing security technologies, including EDR, SIEM, and vulnerability scanners. This ensures that organizations can leverage their current investments while enhancing their overall security posture.
  2. Threat Intelligence Infusion: The platform infuses real-time threat intelligence, helping organizations understand and prioritize threats based on their unique characteristics and vulnerabilities.
  3. Continuous Monitoring and Analysis: Interpres continuously monitors the environment, providing real-time assessments of defensive capabilities and readiness against specific threats.
  4. Automated MITRE ATT&CK Alignment: By mapping detections to elements of the MITRE ATT&CK framework, Interpres helps organizations understand their coverage and identify gaps in their defensive measures.
  5. Proactive Vulnerability Management: The platform prioritizes vulnerability patching based on asset context, risk, and threat intelligence, ensuring that organizations address the most critical vulnerabilities first.

Significant Platform Updates

At the recent RSA Conference, Interpres announced several major updates to its platform aimed at further enhancing its capabilities and value to customers.

Enhanced Threat Prioritization

The updated platform now includes advanced threat prioritization features, allowing organizations to better understand which threats pose the greatest risk. By integrating with multiple threat intelligence sources, including premium feeds from providers like Mandiant, Interpres offers a refined view of threat landscapes specific to each organization.

Improved Visibility and Detection

Visibility into asset exposure and detection capabilities has been significantly improved. The platform now supports more granular analysis of detection logic and log collection, ensuring that organizations can quickly identify and address gaps in their visibility and detection mechanisms.

Automated Security Control Assessments

The new automated security control assessments feature enables organizations to continuously evaluate the effectiveness of their security controls. This includes assessing configuration settings, log collection, and detection logic against prioritized threats, ensuring optimal defensive readiness.

Real-Time Threat Exposure Management

Interpres has introduced real-time threat exposure management, allowing organizations to instantly assess their readiness against newly discovered threats. This feature reduces the time required to understand and respond to emerging threats from days or weeks to just minutes.

Why These Updates Matter

The updates to the Interpres platform are not just incremental improvements; they represent a significant leap forward in how organizations can manage and mitigate cyber threats. Here’s why these enhancements are crucial:

  1. Reduced Response Time: By automating threat assessments and vulnerability management, Interpres significantly reduces the time required to respond to new threats. This enables organizations to act swiftly, minimizing the potential impact of attacks.
  2. Comprehensive Threat Understanding: The integration of multiple threat intelligence sources and continuous monitoring provides organizations with a comprehensive understanding of their threat landscape. This allows for more informed decision-making and prioritization of security efforts.
  3. Enhanced Defensive Posture: Continuous assessments and real-time visibility ensure that organizations maintain an optimal defensive posture, capable of adapting to the ever-changing threat environment.
  4. Proactive Risk Management: The platform’s ability to prioritize vulnerabilities based on contextual risk factors ensures that organizations focus their efforts on the most critical issues, reducing overall risk and enhancing security resilience.

Combat Cyber Threats More Effectively

Interpres Security is leading the charge in transforming how organizations approach cybersecurity defense. With its comprehensive platform and recent updates, Interpres offers a powerful solution to the complex challenges of managing threat exposure and aligning with the MITRE ATT&CK framework.

These enhancements not only improve the efficiency and effectiveness of security operations but also provide organizations with the tools they need to stay ahead of emerging threats. As cyber threats continue to evolve, Interpres Security’s innovative approach ensures that organizations are better equipped to protect their assets and maintain robust security postures.
