Data Security/Compliance Innovation of the Year
RiskIQ, the leader in attack surface management, announced the RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme, an ecosystem and collaboration framework for leading security solution providers to enable proactive attack surface management and protection for companies of all sizes. RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme is a next-generation partner programme enabling members to rapidly deploy RiskIQ attack surface visibility and internet security intelligence across their enterprise security ecosystem (or infrastructure) for automated and informed threat detection, investigations, and prevention.
Transformation initiatives, which have been accelerated by COVID-19, are producing an ever-expanding and dynamic digital presence for all companies. New applications and infrastructure are being deployed outside the control and purview of IT or Security teams. Meanwhile, adversaries are global, sophisticated, and agile—constantly tunings their approach and tactics. To keep pace, enterprises have deployed a broad range of security solutions and services providers all requiring visibility and data to power them. RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme was designed to address these challenges and empower the security ecosystem with the data, intelligence, and interoperability needed to detect, investigate, and remediate threats faster and more effectively than ever before.
RiskIQ’s solutions are powered by the company’s proprietary Internet Intelligence Graph, which absorbs internet data on a massive scale and continuously maps the billions of relationships between internet-exposed infrastructure worldwide. RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme enables other security vendors to easily tap into petabytes of current and historic internet intelligence to inform and automate their solutions and improve the efficacy of their customer’s security operation programmes. More than 80 percent of RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme members also rely on RiskIQ solutions internally to help protect their own company, brand, and assets.
The RiskIQ Interlock Partner Programme will focus on the security market segments:

“Most vendors design partner programmes to aggregate data and workflow operations around a single solution or platform, but we've taken a different, more open approach with ours," said Brandon Dixon, RiskIQ VP of strategy. "RiskIQ’s Interlock Partner Programme focuses on peer-to-peer engagement, and as the name suggests, it's about quickly and easily creating connectedness across the security ecosystem, with data and value accruing to both partners and ultimately achieving improved security and reduced risk for all customers."
"We value our partnership with RiskIQ. As an early partner in the CrowdStrike Store, the RiskIQ App extends the power of our cloud-delivered CrowdStrike Falcon platform providing security teams with 360-degree visibility and monitoring of their entire digital attack surface so that customers can more quickly spot and stop a breach," said Andy Horwitz, vice president of CrowdStrike Store. "The combination of CrowdStrike and RiskIQ enables our customers to gain complete context with external internet intelligence and internal endpoint data to help accelerate threat investigation and incident response. We look forward to the opportunity to participate in the Interlock Partner Programme and believe it will provide another opportunity for CrowdStrike and RiskIQ to partner and create more effective security ecosystems."
