Lookingglass is transforming the art of threat intelligence with innovative technology that empowers customers with complete and relevant risk information, delivering confidence, streamlining workflows, and radically driving efficiencies. “Our threat intelligence management system delivers content, context, and intangibility in risk and security operations decision support,” delineates Chris Coleman, CEO, Lookingglass. Managing these threats is ScoutVision™, a platform developed by Lookingglass to increase the visibility within and beyond the network perimeter, enabling customers to continuously assess and mitigate threats. ScoutVision is known for its ability to provide a holistic dynamic defense, which compiles anomalous activities from multiple sources, and aggregates these sources to build the most accurate intelligence picture. The disparate pieces obtained from these sources form an image that is greater than the sum of its parts, creating threat knowledge that enables proactive security. “As the defender, you have to have as much information as possible about the entities beyond the perimeter that are transacting with your business,” states Coleman. With the aforementioned tools, customers are proffered with intelligence and the associated threats, which can be assessed to comprehend the risks pertaining with the collection or entities.
To further enhance their dynamic threat intelligence technology, Lookingglass recently acquired CloudShield for harnessing their expertise in Deep Packet Processing (DPP).
Various Fortune 500 customers from financial, telecommunication, and government sectors have leveraged the expertise of Lookingglass. In an implementation highlight, one financial service customer was researching correlated set of entities that were denying their firm to access their firewalls. ScoutVision helped the client in correlating these entities’ information, which enabled them to determine the impending risks and take the necessary steps.

Lookingglass has cemented their foothold in the current threat intelligence landscape vehemently, irrespective of the magnitude of the competition. “For a company that wants to manifest a long term sustainment in the competitive world, it is essential to focus on your team and the game plan to execute,” explains Coleman. Going forward, Lookingglass intends to rollout more products that will work in collaboration with CloudShield technology. Scaling the business internationally is also on the company’s to-do list. Mergers and acquisitions of prominent firms will be a target in the near future too. “We will be looking for organizations that are unique and have specific technology that can enable us to reach our vision,” concludes Coleman.
