ThreatQuotient and The Missing Link partner to strengthen threat operations in Australia

02 Jul 18

Threat intelligence platform company ThreatQuotient today announced a strategic partnership and reseller agreement with The Missing Link, a provider of information technology solutions across infrastructure, security, backup and disaster recovery, mobility, internet and communications, and cloud services.

Driving threat operations throughout Australia, this alliance will aim to empower organisations with a platform purpose-built to accelerate security operations with the understanding to prioritise and act upon the most relevant threats they are facing.

Fostering collaboration between teams and their tools within a company as well as individual organisations is a key piece in securing society’s most critical information.

The Missing Link aims to streamline and transform IT technologies to help businesses achieve more with their current security operations infrastructure.

“ThreatQuotient’s position in the security operations and management market is reinforced by a rapidly increasing ecosystem of partnerships,” says ThreatQuotient APAC regional director Anthony Stitt.

ThreatQuotient works on the assumption that the foundation of intelligence-driven security is people, and has designed threat intelligence platform, ThreatQ, to accelerate security operations.

Leveraging an integrated self-tuning Threat Library, Adaptive Workbench and Open Exchange, ThreatQ has become the cornerstone of security operations and threat management systems across the globe.

In April, ThreatQuotient announced the release of a cybersecurity situation room solution, ThreatQ Investigations, to boost security teams with the context, customisation and prioritisation needed to make decisions, accelerate detection and response, and advance team collaboration.

The Missing Link CISO Aaron Bailey says, “The Missing Link is excited to be partnering with ThreatQuotient to ensure that we can provide managed security services to our clients from our new SOC facility. 

“This also provides us with the skills required to consult and advise our clients who have their own SOC facilities in how to improve and better integrate their teams with their chosen technology stacks. 

“Through ongoing discussions with the new national Joint Cyber Security Centres being created by the Australian Government, we hope to work closely with them to do our part to help increase the country’s cybersecurity resilience.”
