Exodus Intelligence, a new company that focuses its efforts on helping companies secure their infrastructure through a “vulnerability intelligence data feed,” has announced that their services will partly rely on information purchased from independent researchers from all around the world.
Here’s part of the offering
By leveraging the expertise and insight of a highly experienced research team, in conjunction with insight derived from an external vulnerability research acquisition program, the Exodus Intelligence feed delivers up-to-date, accurate, and relevant security information, enabling its customers to make informed decisions to strengthen their security posture.
So, what makes them so different?
Judging by their mission statement, they claim that many vulnerability bulletins misrepresent the actual risks posed by a security hole. They want to change that by providing a more accurate assessment that would help the affected organization speed up the process of securing its infrastructures and assets.
The Exodus Intelligence team comprises passionate researchers who are apparently aware of the fact that traditional methods aren’t effective when it comes to resolving security issues. They have over 30 years of combined experience in fields like exploit development, network pentesting, vulnerability analysis and security review.
And that’s not all. Exodus Intelligence will also offer public and private training courses on vulnerability discovery and exploitation, and reverse engineering.
According to ZDNet
, the company was founded by Aaron Portnoy and a group of security experts formerly employed at HP’s TippingPoint. Apparently, they had left just before the company started laying off people.
We’ve requested an interview from Exodus Intelligence in an attempt to learn more details about this interesting, to say the least, company. In the meantime, researchers, prepare your vulnerabilities because there’s a new player in town.
