ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy on Joining SecOps, Threat IntelCEO Shares How Digital Shadows Acquisition Helped Clients to Customize Threat Intel
ReliaQuest customers have tailored Digital Shadows' threat intelligence to their organizations to ensure conversations about their brands or products are being captured, says ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy.
The Tampa, Florida-based security operations vendor says the $160 million Digital Shadows acquisition has fortified its detection and response muscle by incorporating emerging threats that aren't broadly known, according to Murphy. Enriching ReliaQuest's data sets with Digital Shadows' risk data has allowed the company to act decisively, automate more and remove noise from security operations environments (see: Black Hat: Web3 Defense, Open-Source Intel & Directory Hacks).
"Digital Shadows' context gives you more certainty," Murphy says. "And certainty allows you to automate more, which is the goal of the large enterprise."
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Murphy also discusses:
- The biggest similarities and differences between TDIR and XDR;
- How security operations need to differ between SMBs and enterprises;
- Why big customers prefer ReliaQuest to traditional MDR vendors.
Murphy's unique approach to driving operational excellence and repeatability makes him a frequent source for industry analysts, news media, higher education leaders and other civic leaders. Under his leadership, ReliaQuest has received numerous accolades for its commitment to focused growth while maintaining a positive company culture. Prior to founding ReliaQuest in December 2007, Murphy served in multiple leadership positions across accounting, finance and operations. He began his career as a management consultant with PwC.
