Delivering real-time intelligence combining knowledge of customers’ unique attack surface and adversary infrastructure, RiskIQ helps organizations rapidly classify threats uniquely relevant to their internet footprint. This crucial capability enables them to prioritize analysis, triage, and response for what matters most.

“The extended enterprise attack surface has become a fluid, dynamic, and entangled digital threat landscape where adversaries can easily hide,” said RiskIQ CEO Lou Manousos. “Security teams now require next-gen intelligence that combines knowledge of the organization's unique attack surface with adversary infrastructure.”

The breakneck speed of digital transformation has emboldened modern threat actors, whose campaigns have grown global in scale across the internet ecosystem.
