In the last two decades, the cybersecurity landscape has evolved, but security processes and controls have failed to integrate quality outside — in view of new cyberthreats and risks. Cyberthreat intelligence is an increasingly overused terminology, confusing the industry and blurring the lines between information and quality intelligence. This is where CYFIRMA steps in.

CYFIRMA is a cyberthreat intelligence analytics platform company with a flagship product called DeCYFIR. This product is designed using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) to provide real-time insights, threat visibility, and situational awareness to prevent business losses. It helps organizations discover and decode unknown cyberthreats and mitigate potential risks. The platform aggregates, correlates and analyzes information from the open and dark web, to effectively identify and process potential threats at the planning stage of a cyberattack. It provides deep insights into the cyberthreat landscape, and amplifies the preparedness of organizations by providing relevant, predictive, and prioritized cyberthreat visibility and intelligence.
The predictive capability of the platform gives organizations deep insights that correlate data to form a threat story, providing context to every threat, increasing the accuracy of threat alerts, and helping clients prioritize resources for cyberattack prevention. It also equips organizations with a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity and helps form strategic, management, and tactical viewpoints.
The company’s growth and service offerings depend mainly on the leadership, guidance, and mentoring of its C-suite, and CYFIRMA has got the perfect piece to fit in this puzzle. CYFIRMA’s Chairman and CEO, Kumar Ritesh, has over two decades of experience in global cybersecurity leadership and has various certifications including PMP, CISSP, CISM, CISSP-ISSAP, TOGAF 9.1, CIPM, and CIPT, among others, to back his knowledge and skill set. He is a highly dynamic executive displaying a high grade of technological acumen and business skills, along with a strong track record of developing successful cybersecurity strategies, products, policies, standards, and solutions.
His resume also includes the development of prototypes for data loss prevention, social profile risk assessment, web content assessment management, intelligence-led cyber risk management, and adaptive cyberthreat intelligence tools.
“Cyberthreat intelligence is an increasingly overused terminology, confusing the industry and blurring the lines between information and quality intelligence. This is where CYFIRMA steps-in.”
Ritesh always observed that organizations struggled to understand the external threat landscape, as their cyber posture management was highly focused on internal protection, security controls, and building firewalls. This was proving ineffective, given that threat actors always kept modifying their approach, methodology, and techniques. A productized offering was needed to help organizations consume multi-dimensional intelligence driven by deep technology —thereby making cyber posture management efficient and effective.
CYFIRMA has a team of highly experienced professionals with rich expertise in the cybersecurity domain along with AI and ML, among others. We believe CYFIRMA is the company to watch out for in 2020, especially with its core product DeCYFIR, which is being upgraded.
