Comcast, the parent company of NBC Universal and SKY Group, has chosen ThreatQ Platform and ThreatQ Investigations to meet its cybersecurity needs.

ThreatQuotient says the selection came after an extensive and competitive selection process, including a four-month proof of concept (POC).

The company says its services have solved a key challenge facing Comcast’s cybersecurity operations center (CSOC): the need to leverage security data across multiple teams and complex use cases, including priority mitigation for threat actors, threat hunting, threat detection engineering, response to incidents and forensics and risk-based vulnerability management.

Comcast to Use ThreatQuotient for Cybersecurity Operations

Comcast cybersecurity senior director, Haris Shawl, says ThreatQuotient’s platform has progressed steadily and quickly introduced new features as requested by its customers.

“When we decided to reassess our approach to threat intelligence, we included ThreatQuotient in the evaluation process based on their iterated ability to deliver,” she says.

“Comcast Cybersecurity chose ThreatQuotient because they have the right technology and skills to support the scale and complexity of cybersecurity operations at Comcast, the largest residential ISP in the US”.

As a result of using the ThreatQ platform with the DataLinq Engine and ThreatQ Investigations, Comcast’s CSOC has been able to:

Prioritize and Collaborate to Increase Efficiency

Comcast’s cybersecurity teams now share data in a highly efficient, highly automated way. ThreatQuotient says that sharing contextualized information is a force multiplier. Groups can focus on relevant, high-priority issues to make better decisions and take the right actions faster.

Get more value from tools and teams.

The ThreatQ platforms support bi-directional integrations with nearly 300 tools, custom dashboards, and integrated views, enabling teams to share data across their workflows using familiar tools. ThreatQuotient says Comcast Cybersecurity is getting more value from existing devices and groups while strengthening security. It sounds like more widgets can be added to scale as needed.

Support for complex usage scenarios

Comcast teams can tackle multiple complex use cases. In addition to sharing data and enabling collaboration, the ThreatQ Platform and ThreatQ Investigations help automate low-risk, repetitive, time-consuming tasks. This allows analysts, threat hunters, and engineers to lead the way in complex, time-sensitive investigations, hunts, forensic analysis, and incident response.

ThreatQuotient President and CEO John Czupak say the company is committed to providing customers with the best service, experience, and technology solutions to meet their unique needs.

“We are incredibly proud to have been selected by Comcast to solve their security operations challenges,” he says.

“To know that Haris Shawl asked his team who they thought would be the best company to work with, and their answer was, without a doubt, ThreatQuotient is not something we take lightly. ThreatQuotient is committed to that level of assurance and confidence to all brands we can work with.”
