Thales advanced cybersecurity products are used by critical infrastructure organizations to enable proactive cyber defense in 68 countries worldwide.

We share a common vision with ThreatQuotient and, with the most mature and robust platform on the market, we knew they could help us industrialize our intelligence model to support our needs worldwide.”
Cyrille Badeau, vice president, international sales at ThreatQuotient, added, “We are very proud of the part the ThreatQ Platform and the ThreatQuotient team have played in enabling Thales to establish and scale its pioneering cyber threat intelligence service. Our open platform allows Thales to adapt its intelligence model to each client, delivering timely, personalized CTI that puts them in a proactive position to deal with cyberthreats. Our relationship with Thales is a model partnership for sharing expertise that demonstrates how organizations can turn CTI into a strategic advantage for themselves and their customers.”
Fontarensky concluded, “Our partnership with ThreatQuotient has helped us grow from a team of one to 50 in a few years and become the largest CTI provider in Europe. Today threat intelligence is strategic to our cybersecurity products and research and to our continued market leadership.”
