Turning the Hunter into the Hunted: Specialized AI and Dark Web Intelligence Redefines Threat Hunting Tactics

Through its acquisition of CTCI, an AI-powered pre-attack threat hunting technology company, Armis enters a new era in security strategy and capabilities, shifting the paradigm from reactive threat response to proactive threat hunting, leveraging AI and dark web intelligence to pre-empt attacks before they happen.

Integrating CTCI’s technology into Armis Centrix™ revolutionizes security early warning intelligence systems globally. In today’s highly dynamic cyber risk environment, organizations need to adopt a new security posture to solve for threats that can significantly impact their organizations. By harnessing the power of AI, dark web “chatter”, dynamically generated honeypots, and human intelligence, Armis Centrix™ for Actionable Threat Intelligence transcends traditional security measures, proactively identifying preparatory indicators of attacks and exploits.

The Armis Asset Intelligence Engine boasts over 4 billion asset profiles, as well as millions of attack surface models. With this trove of intelligence, Armis provides real-time situational awareness and redefines active threat hunting capabilities with new predictive AI technology. Armis can now generate thousands of honeypots that are optimized to the actual attack surface, scrutinizing attack behaviors and tactics as early as the reconnaissance stage, often months before an attack is launched. Armis Centrix™ for Actionable Threat Intelligence empowers organizations to flip the script, turning the hunter into the hunted.

The proactive defense mechanisms employed by Armis Centrix™ for Actionable Threat Intelligence are multifaceted, drawing insights from various sources including:

  1. Dynamic Honeypots Deployment: Armis Centrix™ dynamically deploys purpose-configured honeypots into potential “hotspots,” allowing for the observation of malicious behaviors and techniques.
  2. Dark Web Intelligence: By scouring the deep and dark web for pertinent “chatter,” Armis Centrix™ gains valuable intelligence into nascent cyber threats, enabling preemptive action.
  3. Human Intelligence Integration: Leveraging human intelligence through strategic feeds, reverse engineering, and “listen posts,” Armis Centrix™ ensures unparalleled coverage and accuracy in threat detection.

By tracking potential incidents in real time and preemptively mitigating risks, Armis empowers organizations and government agencies to stay ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving threat landscape.

We at Armis have set our sights high. Our five-year plan is simple: become the leading force in cyber exposure management and asset intelligence. The acquisition of CTCI marks a turning point, signaling a paradigm shift in how we approach cybersecurity. We’re moving beyond traditional defense to a proactive, AI-powered future. Our innovative Armis Centrix™ platform isn’t just for defense, it’s for actionable threat intelligence – jumping ahead of threats with unparalleled insight and preemptive counterstrikes.

As cyberattacks evolve, their complexity grows. We understand the dangers, and Armis Centrix™ offers a dynamic shield. It empowers organizations to protect their critical assets and build resilience in the ever-shifting threat landscape. Forget reactive measures, we’re about taking control and reclaiming the initiative. This is the new era of cybersecurity, and we’re leading the charge.
