Real-time threat intelligence identifies and mitigates risks
I have been using Recorded Future for four months and am still exploring its features. As for improvements, I would suggest enhancing the alert system. For example, when investigating alerts related to my domain "abc.com," I noticed that the system sometimes detects false positives. It detects other words that contain the letters "abc" like "ablex" or "ableg" which can be misleading. It would be helpful if the system could improve its accuracy and only detect alerts that are truly relevant to my domain. I would recommend adding a feature that can specifically detect my domain name, "abc.com," and not just words containing "abc" or similar letters. It would further reduce false positives and improve the overall accuracy of the system.

The tool could be integrated into any environment, but it was expensive, and the deployment process was complex
The solution was used for publishing artefacts and threat intel data. We gathered data from the internet and uploaded it to the platform. It was integrated into every aspect of our cybersecurity network, like endpoints, SOC management, patch management, and vulnerability management tools TIP and…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The most valuable feature is Recorded Future's protection of exposed customer data on the hardware side."
"The solution is diverse and provides me with a lot of different mechanisms for evaluation."
"The most valuable features of Recorded Future are the useful alerts it provides. If we are monitoring a domain, the solution will provide us with an alert in a prompt manner. It is simple for clients to receive alerts. The advanced search is useful for more accurate filter results."
"The tool is helpful in vulnerability assessment of zero-day vulnerabilities and phishing domains. The solution provides information on any domains of the organization that has undergone phishing or any other cyberattacks."
"It can collect data from various sources, including social media and the dark web."
"Has the ability to conduct and build any query without limitations."
"As a threat intelligence tool, it's very helpful."
"From the feedback I've received from my clients, the most valuable feature is the ability to personalize the solution. The ability to have a customized dashboard makes it easy for leadership and management to obtain details. Intelligence analysts or security engineers care about the actions and results, whereas the leadership care about graphs and reports. Recorded Future helps my clients create reports and also determine how the intelligence that is generated is consumed. They can easily show the benefits to the leadership without them having to invest 10 hours a week into transferring numbers into a graph or into creating reports."
"The product automatically generated a threat score based on the maliciousness of an IP."
"The tool's installation, integration, and playbooks are very straightforward."
"It's a solid platform and is stable enough. It is not complicated and is easy to use."
"ThreatConnect has a highly user-friendly interface."
"The most valuable features are ease of use and the ability to customize it."
 

Cons

"There is a semantic oncology dynamic relationship between how the MIGR Tech framework needs more data infusion enrichment capabilities."
"The product gives many false positives. If someone talks about the brand or organization name in the public domain over chats or blocks, it gets highlighted. It may not necessarily be a threat but still gets highlighted which increases the false positive count."
"It sometimes detects false positives and reduces the overall accuracy of the system."
"Recorded Future is a very expensive solution, and its pricing could be improved."
"At present, my clients need to be trained by me or another organization on how to use Recorded Future and how to get the best out of it as an analyst, engineer, and administrator. It would be better if clients could directly learn these things without having to go through me or other organizations."
"The solution would benefit from introducing automation."
"The solution could improve in reducing the false positives. However, most of the other tools on the market have false positives. If they enhance their data algorithm, it could improve the accuracy of results and minimize false positives. Identifying patterns of false possibilities can aid in developing better reporting features that could potentially eliminate them in the future. This recording feature tool could benefit from adopting similar techniques utilized by other tools to enhance its functionality. By doing so, it could minimize the need for manual efforts in distinguishing true positives from false positives, ultimately reducing the workload."
"When you add one website to Recorded Future, it should automatically call all other websites and social media platforms."
"It would be good to have more feeds and more integrated sources for enrichment."
"Support is an area with which nobody is ever fully satisfied, so it can be improved."
"They should make it a little bit easier to generate events and share them with the community"
"Integration is an area that could use some improvement."
"I couldn’t get any training videos online when I was working with the tool."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price of the solution is worth it. The overall performance of the solution outweighs the cost."
"There appear to be up to five different levels, with the most expensive version costing around $95,000 to $105,000 a year for subscription services."
"I would rate the solution’s pricing a seven out of ten."
"The biggest disadvantage of Recorded Future is the cost here in Eastern Europe. The solution is correctly priced for big companies who have the money to invest in such solutions. Also, the solution is useless on its own, which means that you have to invest in other solutions with which Recorded Future can be integrated. At present, Recorded Future can cost 60,000 euros per year. I am able to offer my clients a 5% to 10% discount, but in this region, the cost is still prohibitive even with the discount. If Recorded Future were more flexible in terms of price, there would be better sales opportunities in Europe and Eastern Europe, in particular, because we have more small- and medium-sized companies here."
"The price could be better."
"I rate the product price as six on a scale of one to ten, where one is extremely expensive, and ten means it is cheap."
"The tool is expensive."
"The price of this product is in the mid-range, not too expensive, nor inexpensive."
