RiskIQ’s virtual web crawler approach, however, does have some limitations. For instance, outside of Facebook, RiskIQ isn’t able to track all private activity of client-owned social media accounts. Clients may also experience some inconsistencies in their data since RiskIQ’s aggregation techniques circumvent some digital channels’ APIs. Even so, S&R pros looking to detect malicious, external cyberactivity across a wide gamut of digital channels will want to take a close look at RiskIQ.

With more than 80 percent of attacks originating outside the firewall, RiskIQ helps organizations protect businesses, customers, and brands across digital channels.

Today’s diverse cyber threats, from ransomware, phishing, and malware to rogue mobile apps, malvertising, and social impersonation, circumvent traditional security tools and place an enormous burden on information security organizations. RiskIQ addresses the questions of: (1) how compliant and susceptible are my internet-facing assets and digital brand, (2) how do external exploits, attackers, and adversary infrastructure relate to internally discovered suspicious activity, security events, and incidents, (3) what and how are cyber threats attacking my business, (4) can I manage the risk and take down the threat, and (5) are entities abusing my brand and customers?
