IntSights Cyber Intelligence, Inc is a global cybersecurity company specializing in external threat intelligence and protection.[1] It was founded in 2015 and is currently headquartered in New York, NY.[2]

IntSights applies a variety of automated data-gathering techniques (e.g., OSINT) and advanced analytics to collect data across the clear, deep, and dark web. It then processes and analyzes this collected data to detect newly emerging or active cyberthreats, and orchestrates the various mitigation paths to ensure that the threats and any connected malicious content are removed and that the targeted corporate perimeters and endpoints are secured.


IntSights was founded in 2015 by former members of the Israel Defense Forces and its SIGINT team, Unit 8200. The three co-founders entered the private sector with a vision to build a threat intelligence solution for enterprise security teams to improve the way they detect, analyze, and neutralize cyberthreats beyond their corporate perimeters, "outside the wire."

Today, IntSights serves enterprise organizations worldwide. Its headquarters are in New York, NY, and runs regional operating offices in Boston, Dallas, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Singapore, and Tokyo.[3]

IntSights is venture-backed, with a total of $41.3 million in venture funding to date.[4] Most recently, IntSights raised $17 million in a Series C funding round led by Tola Capital in June 2018.[5] IntSights' other institutional investors, include: Blackstone, Blumberg Capital, ClearSky Security, Glilot Capital Partners, and Wipro Ventures.


IntSights has three core offerings that comprise its External Threat Protection Suite: 1) IntSights Threat Command™️, 2) IntSights Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), and 3) IntSights Threat Research.

IntSights Threat Command™️[edit]

IntSights Threat Command™️ is SaaS-based tool that applies advanced analytics and automation to the broad web data it collects across the clear, deep, and dark web. It builds tailored intelligence and alerts, specific to individual organizations and their threat environments. It does this by contextually mapping organizations' digital assets and digital footprints to narrow and improve the relevance of its threat intelligence and alerting so that only high-probability events are shown where evidence clearly shows an organization is targeted or otherwise at risk.

Examples of detected threat events consist of everything from newly-weaponized phishing domains used in various cyberattacks, to brandjacking events (e.g., Fake social media accounts impersonating key executives), to massive data dumps[6] containing sensitive or strategic information (e.g., stolen intellectual property, PII, or compromised credentials) that's then leveraged as part of attacks (e.g., credential stuffing).

As a final step, enterprise security teams can use Threat Command™️ to neutralize or otherwise mitigate any newly-detected threat through integration and automation with other third-party security systems and applications (e.g., NGFWs or web proxies). Threat mitigation is ultimately supported in one of two common ways: 1) By facilitating the takedown requests of the malicious assets, such as web domains, social media accounts, or mobile apps, or 2) By integrating with the security systems and applications that the organization owns and operates, and updating their respective blocklists and blacklists.

IntSights Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP)[edit]

The IntSights Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) provides enterprise security teams an isolated environment for threat sharing, research, and investigation. It's a SaaS-based Threat Intelligence Platform, designed for enterprise security teams who want to conduct their own threat research and in-depth investigations. It ingests industry security and threat feeds, along with IntSights' own curated intelligence; it then normalizes, deduplicates, and enriches the resulting indicators of compromise (IOCs) with third-party enrichment sources. This publicly-available threat feeds, like PhishTank and MISP, as well as those managed by national and regional law enforcement agencies, NGOs, and threat sharing organizations, including FS-ISAC, R-CISC, US-CERT, and Cyber Threat Alliance.

IntSights Threat Research[edit]

IntSights Threat Research service is run by its dedicated threat analyst team, which includes efforts to: a) conduct deeper, ad-hoc threat hunting and investigations, b) curate and prioritize dark web channels as threat sources, and c) coordinate takedown requests with the requisite domain hosting providers and platform operators.
