About iSIGHT Partners
Founded in 2006, iSIGHT Partners is a global cyber intelligence firm that delivers Managed Intelligence to leading enterprises in business and government. Since our inception, we have focused entirely on building our global infrastructure and cultivating an expansive base of security technology and intelligence talent. Today, we are uniquely positioned to monitor and mine the cyber threat ecosystem and deliver proprietary intelligence products and services specific to the threats our clients face. We further provide integration support that links adversary and attack method intelligence to our clients' attack surface infrastructures.
With iSIGHT Partners, enterprises can deploy their defenses more efficiently and effectively, and internal security professionals can more accurately quantify the return on security investments for senior management.

Information security is built on an unfortunate premise: companies are devoting greater resources - technological, financial, human - than ever, yet cyber threats are proliferating rapidly, becoming more sophisticated in nature and exacting a greater toll.
Information security teams face an enormous challenge to protect their systems while justifying escalating costs. It is no longer enough to simply plug holes in the attack surface, conform to a compliance checklist and tally up every intrusion detected and blocked as a "win." Organizations can only deploy their defenses effectively if they understand the threat environment in which they operate - who is likely to attack them, what their motives are and how they plan to attack.
Too many organizations view cyber security as a technology problem rather than a business problem. Technology-led strategies result in organizations blindly defending against all possibilities rather than intelligently aligning defenses against genuine adversaries and their interests. Information security professionals have begun to realize the need for intelligence-led security, in which security investments and deployments are determined by a clear understanding of the external threats facing the organization.
Actionable intelligence requires a new, integrated, end-to-end approach encompassing intelligence collection, research, analysis, presentation, implementation and diagnostics.
iSIGHT Partners is defining the standards for this emerging discipline of cyber security: Managed Intelligence.
Our Global Network
iSIGHT Partners has built an unparalleled global cyber intelligence organization that operates through five geographic centers covering 56 countries in 22 languages that research emerging cyber threat adversaries, their capabilities, their motivations and their methods. Further, our personnel are native language speakers attuned to the cultures of the regions within their focus.
Cyber security has evolved in three phases:
The first was attack surface protection and detection. Organizations have historically allocated the vast majority of their security investments to finding and blocking system intrusions.
The second was attack method monitoring and detection, which emerged as security professionals, became more sophisticated about attack methods and developed countermeasures.
Very few enterprises have progressed beyond these technology-based phases and most continue to view security as a technical problem calling for a technical solution. This leads to the third, emerging phase, adversary intelligence. Knowing and understanding threat sources, operationalized through technology, enables organizations to improve their security infrastructures' effectiveness by more intelligently allocating resources against indicated threats. That is the essence of intelligence-led security.
iSIGHT Partners has deep working knowledge of each of these phases, combined with the unique ability to connect the components (i.e. attacker, attack method and attack surface) to create adversarial "playbooks." iSIGHT Partners is the cyber intelligence practitioner that takes an "outside in" approach beginning with the threat source rather than the attack surface.
