Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"They also provide some of the greatest notification capabilities. I put in a customer's company name and domain names, or sometimes I put in their IP addresses as a keyword. Once Sixgill collects information that includes those keywords, they then provide us email notifications. That means we can catch information related to our customers as soon as possible.""The solution’s approach of using limited open source intelligence and focusing, instead, on the Deep Web and Dark Web is what seals the deal. That is why I like them. I have other tools that I can aggregate all the open source intelligence from. I value Cybersixgill because it provides access to things that no one else does.""The advanced analysis has made our security operations more efficient. It has also potentially given us quicker access to data that we might not have otherwise located.""To be diligent for the customer, we usually go into Cybersixgill Investigative Portal to analyze and search things. The solution tells us the reputation of cyber threat actors. So, if someone has a reputation of one, it is a really bad idea to care about what that person is saying. However, if you find someone with a reputation of nine, then there is a high probability that we need to address the problem. You can get information about these type of actors in Cybersixgill Investigative Portal. They have a huge collection, which is like having the rules/goals of the dark web and deep web without having to go there. Our analysts avoid going dark web because they have Cybersixgill Investigative Portal and can get the news from their browser, searching wherever they want."

Cons
"Sixgill has strong capabilities based on search queries, but there is some difficulty in using Sixgill. Their querying is very powerful but it can be difficult. It's not hugely complex but you need some skill to use Sixgill querying.""We need real-time updated information. If we could have this, it would be amazing. For example, if someone was posting something, then ten second later, it was on the platform. Sometimes, it takes a minute or hours right now, depending on the forum.""The breadth of access to data is good, but there are gaps. More data would be my suggestion because the platform is good and I have no complaints about the system. I think it is just a case of always trying to get more data sources.""Regarding their scraping abilities, things could be solidified. There are definitely improvements that could be made on the specificity for setting certain queries."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is cheap compared with Recorded Future. Sixgill's cost-effectiveness is very good."
  • "Sometimes, Cybersixgill Investigative Portal is cheaper than its competitors."
  • "The pricing and licensing are good. It is expensive for us because the US dollar is quite strong compared to our dollar. Otherwise, it is quite reasonable for what it is. All the tools in the market are around the same price from my experience."

      • Powered by the largest data lake of deep and dark web activity
      • Real-time actionable alerts customized to your organization

      Recorded Future is a powerful and effective cyber threat intelligence (CTI) platform that aims to empower administrators to protect their organizations from threats, both known and unknown. The machine learning engine that Recorded Future utilizes can process the same amount of data that 9,000 analysts working five days a week, eight hours a day for an entire year can process. It simplifies threat detection and remediation so that organizations can focus on other tasks.

      Recorded Future Benefits

      Some of the ways that organizations can benefit by choosing to deploy Recorded Future include:

      • Quick threat identification and resolution. The suite of threat detection and resolution features that Recorded Future provides enables users to find and react to threats faster than users who employ their competitors. Organizations can identify 22 times more threats 10 times faster than they would have been able to with any other solution. They can also resolve these threats 63% faster than they were able to before.
      • Access far-reaching deep insights. Recorded Future gives users the ability to expand their vision beyond that which is immediately visible to them. They can set Recorded Future to detect issues that originate outside of the immediate vicinity of their network. Organizations can utilize machine learning to analyze for links between themselves and the dark web. This provides users insights as to what their vulnerabilities are and gives them insights that they can use to remediate any issues that have arisen or will arise.
      • Customization. Organizations can integrate Recorded Future with a wide variety of other security tools. If the organization feels that Recorded Future is lacking the capability that they need, then it can expand its toolbox by combining it with other solutions. Additionally, users can easily create dashboards and modify them to best meet their objectives as their needs change.

      Recorded Future Features

      Some of the many features Recorded Future offers include:

      • Vulnerability scanning tools. Recorded Future is built with the ability to scan for, identify, and score potential vulnerabilities in real time. It searches a wide variety of sources for information on the risks that an organization faces. This information is analyzed and scored for severity in real time. These tools enable users to prioritize the most severe threats over those issues that will only be nuisances.
      • Threat authentication. Users can set security protocols that Recorded Future leverages to reduce false positives. It has tools that compare the detected threats against the organization’s protocols. This allows the system to notify administrators whether they are looking at an actual threat or simply a mistake that the system initially misidentified.
      • Attack surface intelligence. Organizations gain the ability to see the points of vulnerability that would normally be invisible to them and would only be visible to outside attackers. This tool fully exposes the environment that surrounds their network. Everything from historical data going as far back as 10 years to real-time information is gathered so that administrators can create the best possible security strategy for their organization.

      Reviews from Real Users

      Recorded future is a solution that stands out when compared to its top competitors. Two major advantages it offers are the threat research tools that it provides and the threat monitoring capabilities that it enables users to leverage.

      A security operations lead at a comms service provider writes, “Recorded Future covers a lot of different use cases. For example, we are using it for threat intelligence research. We do use the tool to make active research on what is found around the threat. We look at patterns, for example, and see what can be elaborated on from that.”

      They also write, “We can also use it for active monitoring in the customer interface. We can monitor the business side of a campaign. We can monitor for specific threats or market activity on the dashboard. We can develop queries to run in a continuous mode in order to get the best reviews.”
