Threat Intelligence Monitoring Contract for FTSE 250 Engineering Company

6 June 2023 – London, UK – Crossword Cybersecurity Plc (AIM:CCS, “Crossword”, the “Company” or the “Group”), the software and services company focused on cyber security and risk, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract with a FTSE 250 engineering company to provide forward looking Dark Web Threat Intelligence services. The service will be delivered via Crossword’s Trillion platform using its market leading credential leak and discussion monitoring services. The solution will be backed up by expert human analysis to deliver the service.

The FTSE 250 engineering company is already a Consulting client of Crossword’s. The close relationship between the consulting team and the product team at Crossword helped identify the benefits the client will derive from the Dark Web Threat Intelligence services.

Jon Inns, Director of Threat Intelligence Products, Crossword Cybersecurity, commented: “Trillion gives our clients extensive, rich and safe access to hidden discussions, intelligence data, and potential cyber-attack planning.

Early warning signs of impending cyber-attacks indicators are plentiful to the trained eye, but finding and ranking them is time consuming and hazardous given the terabytes of data moving within the Dark Web every day. Trillion’s technology significantly reduces both discovery time and risk while dramatically increasing the observable dark space for our clients. Trillion’s technology, which has been built in-house, is coupled with expert human analysis to ensure we provide our clients with the maximum level of coverage and context.”

Trillion™ is Crossword’s Dark Web Threat Intelligence platform that continuously tracks, correlates and analyses billions of stolen user credentials and threat actor exchanges, hunting for digital indicators that could be relevant to our clients’ security defences. Trillion’s intelligent risk engines identify the threats with greatest potential to result in corporate damage. With comprehensive data filters and automatic live account detection, Trillion™ makes it easy for clients to sort through and categorise the threat levels arising from threat indicators.
