ServiceNow Trusted Security Circles is a new cloud-based application that gives enterprises the ability to share and receive hyper-relevant threat intelligence in near real-time. With this new solution, security teams can ask their peers, suppliers and partners about threats, so they can be forewarned of targeted attacks and proactively make preparation to ensure the safety of their community.

On average, bad actors took about a month to exploit a vulnerability, with half of all first exploitation attempts having occurred within a period of between 10 and 100 days*. Since attackers often use the same exploits against multiple targets in an industry or community, sharing threat intelligence with peers could give others lead time to thwart similar attacks in their own networks.
“Securely and anonymously sharing active threat data with trusted peers
has simply not been possible,” said
With Trusted Security Circles, a security team may see suspicious
activity in their network and will want to know if others in their
defined community have also seen it. An anonymous query goes to other
members of the chosen circle, and a sightings search is performed
against the specified suspicious observables. Customers now know if a
security incident they’re investigating is happening to any peers,
partners or suppliers. If the number of sightings exceeds a set
threshold, a security incident can be automatically opened in
“Having a systematic approach to sharing threat intelligence is
important for IT and Security teams to remediate threats within their
own company,” said
ServiceNow Vendor Risk Management
With Vendor Risk Management, organizations can now automate the third-party risk management process, ensuring quality and effectiveness of assessment controls. They can onboard new vendors much more quickly, allowing them to get value from their vendors more quickly. And finally, when combined with a broader risk management program, an organization can get a complete view of their overall risk and a systematic way to take action to reduce it.
Both ServiceNow Trusted Security Circles and Vendor Risk Management will be available in third quarter of 2017.
