Flashpoint Launches Strategic Partner Network and Enriches API to Provide Even More Contextual Intelligence

Finished Intelligence, Deep & Dark Web, and Risk Intelligence Observables Datasets Help Customers Mitigate Risk and Empower Partners to Create Custom Integrations

Flashpoint, the global leader in Business Risk Intelligence (BRI), announced its Strategic Partner Network, as well as an update to its API. API v4 provides direct access to Flashpoint datasets, including Finished Intelligence, Deep & Dark Web (DDW) data, and Risk Intelligence Observables (RIOs), thereby enabling immediate benefit to customers as well as custom integrations into third-party platforms.

Strategic Partner Network companies integrating API v4 include†Anomali,†Silobreaker,†ThreatConnect†and†ThreatQuotient. These integrations help Flashpoint’s Strategic Partner Network deliver unmatched visibility into threats, empowering experienced and entry-level users alike with the context they need to make better decisions about risks posed by cybercrime, fraud, and other physical and cyber threats relevant to them.

By allowing end users near real-time access to Flashpoint’s archive of finished intelligence and normalized data — either directly or through third-party integrations — customers can enrich and enhance their internal data with targeted data acquisition from highly curated sources. API v4 includes the following datasets:

  • Finished Intelligence:†Access to written analysis and investigative reports produced by Flashpoint subject matter experts. These human-digestible intelligence reports cover a wide spectrum of illicit, underground activity — from cybercrime, hacking, and fraud to emergent malware, DDoS intelligence, hacktivism, violent extremism, and other cyber and physical threats.
  • Deep & Dark Web (DDW): Access to an extensive historical archive of signal-rich discussions from DDW threat actor communities. This data enables users to leverage the DDW safely and supplement their internal data with targeted data from highly curated sources. As a result, users gain a strategic advantage over adversaries.
  • Risk Intelligence Observables (RIOs):†RIOs provide visibility into activities and events extending beyond indicator-based datasets. By enriching technical data with additional context, RIOs empower users to better understand and mitigate risks. RIOs are a high-fidelity feed of cyber observables that customers can integrate with their security operations to attain a decision advantage. These observables inform operations of risk levels associated with particular communications, provide enrichment to investigations, and expose potential reconnaissance, exfiltration, and insider threat activities.

New features in API v4 include:

  • Improved Documentation:†Easier to access and easier to understand. Browse the latest documentation and try out sample API queries in a web browser without having to write or export code to kickstart your development.
  • Correlated Activity Across Datasets:†Pivot from Finished Intelligence to DDW data; dive into RIOs using the universal IDs returned by API v4.
  • Persistent API Tokens:†Manage new, persistent API tokens in the Flashpoint user profile within Flashpoint Intelligence Platform.
  • Easy to Read Parameters:†Quickly understand searches with the new human-readable search and response parameters.
  • Pivot into Flashpoint Intelligence Platform:†Finished Intelligence, Deep & Dark Web, and RIOs include full URLs that link to†Flashpoint Intelligence Platform, all of which offer additional context for investigations.

“Part of what makes Flashpoint so unique in the way we help our customers best mitigate risk is the mix of our innovative technology and our human-powered analysis. The updates to the datasets we provide to our customers, and our API overall, create even more value,” said Josh Lefkowitz, CEO and Co-Founder, Flashpoint. “This innovation is also why we’ve been fortunate to attract such top-tier, leading-edge companies to our Strategic Partner Network. I am excited about the future work we will do together to bring Business Risk Intelligence to our customers.”

Flashpoint API v4 is available now.
