Anomali, the provider of the market-leading ThreatStream threat intelligence and Anomali Enterprise platforms, announced today its technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the independent, non-profit strategic investor that identifies, adapts, and delivers innovative technology solutions to support the mission of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).

In-Q-Tel was an investor in Anomali’s recent venture capital investment rounds. The recent investment rounds will continue to advance the development of Anomali’s Enterprise and ThreatStream threat intelligence products supporting the needs of the IC. IQT chose to invest in Anomali because of the completeness of the company’s threat intelligence platform solutions, experienced senior staff led by Hugh Njemanze, former CEO of ArcSight, and development pipeline.

“The Anomali solution offers the government a way to aggregate and rationalize the hundreds of thousands of incoming threat signatures into a single unified data feed that can be expressed as a single API,” said George Hoyem, investment lead for Enterprise IT at IQT. “This capability allows the government to quickly unlock valuable data from millions of cyber threat indicators which can then be applied to securing our national infrastructure.”

Anomali’s products are used to aggregate and curate massive amounts of threat intelligence data, reduce false-positives, facilitate threat hunting, and provide vetted trusted circles for secure communication between organizations. Anomali’s latest products also provide retrospective analysis by continuously reading a year’s worth of an organization’s log data and comparing it to Anomali’s vast library of indicators of compromise.

“We are pleased to be working with In-Q-Tel in support of all federal government agencies and especially those on the front lines of cyber security defense,” said Todd Helfrich, vice president of Federal at Anomali. “Our innovation is due to our relationship as a collaborative partner with federal incident responders, operations center directors, and threat analysts with the goal of having the fastest and most complete insight into the latest external threats.”
