DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iSIGHT Partners Inc., the leader in global cyber threat intelligence, announced today that it was granted U.S. Patent No. 8,494,974, which broadly covers a unique technology system that identifies and associates general, sector and targeted cyber threats to an organization’s business along with the related security investment. The benefit of aligning threats to the business is more intelligent cyber security investment decisions. The techniques and processes covered by this patent will be integrated into iSIGHT's proprietary Cyber Risk Management System (iCRMS), a technology platform that will provide both commercial and government agencies with unprecedented decision support, enabling them to derive optimal value from their cyber security investments.

This combination provides CISO's with the intelligence needed to drive maximum value from cyber security budgets.
“This patent, combined with iCRMS, connects actual events in the security infrastructure to the context of the attack method that it represents and the objectives of the adversary behind the attack.”
