DomainTools Iris Now Offers Collaboration Features for Improved Teamwork and Investigation Sharing

Las Vegas – July 24, 2017 DomainTools, the leader in domain name and DNS-based cyber threat intelligence, today unveiled new collaboration capabilities of Iris, a proprietary threat intelligence and investigative platform used by security teams to triage threat indicators, assess risk, and help mitigate future attacks. DomainTools’ senior security researcher and Black Hat review board member Kyle Wilhoit will be in attendance at Black Hat USA 2017 to showcase new Iris features including shared investigations, investigation notes, and exportable investigation reports. Through interactive demos at booth #160, event attendees will get a glimpse into how these new features enable collaboration among security teams and improve the ability of security analysts to annotate their investigations and deliver curated PDF outputs to external parties.

The new capabilities within Iris encourages users to collaborate with the help of easier, more targeted, and efficient methods. Through shared investigations, security teams can work together in real-time to leverage individual strengths and experience levels within the group. Additionally, the tool’s new notes component allows users to document their rationale and insight at any investigation node/pivot and have this commentary accessible to anyone in the collective team. The addition of exportable investigation reports enables users to share customizable information via printable, PDF-format outputs easily shareable in soft or hard copy to interested parties.

“As a security researcher myself, I understand the importance of collaboration and information sharing through all stages of an investigation. With the shared investigations tool within Iris, security teams can work cohesively in real time to expose actor infrastructure and make decisions to better protect their networks,” said Wilhoit. “We’re looking forward to demonstrating these abilities at Black Hat, a place where infosec collaboration is encouraged and revered.”
