ICG Announces Addition of Stratfor Analysis into iThreat(R) Global Intelligence Monitor
PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Internet Crimes Group, Inc. (ICG) announced today that reports from international affairs intelligence company, Stratfor, will be integrated into ICG's iThreat(R) Global Intelligence Monitor open source intelligence product.
iThreat(R) Global Intelligence Monitor (GIM) is a subscription-based Web application that displays intelligence about potential threats on a map alongside an organization's assets. The new combination of Stratfor's incisive analysis and iThreat(R)'s customized stream of near-real-time threat data means security professionals can develop quicker and better responses to organizational threats.
"Now, when a specific proximity-matched threat against a facility or an employee appears on the iThreat(R) GIM map, they can immediately read relevant Stratfor reports for better context and analysis," remarked Jeff Bedser, President/COO of ICG.
Fred Burton, Vice President of Counterterrorism and Corporate Security for Stratfor, said, "For years, security professionals have relied on Stratfor expertise to develop fully informed threat management plans. We are pleased to have Stratfor content integrated into the iThreat(R) GIM mapping view, which gives security professionals a one-screen presentation of the entire global threat environment."
iThreat(R) GIM filters thousands of targeted threat items around the clock, including proprietary Red Flag threat data that are not available through Internet search engines.
iThreat(R) GIM is used by security professionals at Global 2,500 companies with assets, employees and facilities around the world.
