Cyber Security Advisor - Director at FortNet UK Ltd
Top 5Leaderboard
Able to discover unpatched servers, offers good stability, and scales very well

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is stable with 12 years of established historical data."
  • "A low-cost service to evaluate the risk score of a supply chain would be very helpful."

What is our primary use case?

Working for FortNet UK, we advised customers regarding their specific security challenges and would recommend RiskIQ when appropriate.

We had numerous customers from industries such as retail, media, hospitality, aviation, and finance.

Attack Surface Management provided our customers with visibility on everything in their network and domains - anything publicly-facing on the internet - shows where they have potential vulnerabilities. 

Following the BA Magecart card skimming breach in 2019 (the breach of 500,000 credit cards including CVV numbers) we saw a big surge towards helping customers with transactional websites determine if they had Magecart-style Javascript insertions. Something RiskIQ is very good at detecting, but cannot block. As a Cyber Consultant, we are working with both RiskIQ and other companies that can prevent Javascript from launching.

How has it helped my organization?

Every customer got different benefits from the product. However, the key benefits were:

1. 24/7 Visibility of internet-facing assets and corresponding vulnerabilities including shadow IT and legacy IT and unpatched servers that often they didn't even know existed. Visibility of GDPR and other regulatory risks was also possible.

2. Notification of domain impersonation, rogue mobile apps, and social media, and the takedown service of any fraudulent services.

3. Helping companies to integrate their assets into SIEMs such as Splunk and Rapid7.

4. Risk scores and a continuous ability to see if an organization's security posture was improving or deteriorating.

What is most valuable?

We discovered employees using their corporate email address to register personal websites outside of their employer's corporate security policies. The issue being that if their websites were violating local regulations, the employer became liable.

Other customers found RiskIQ's ability to discover unpatched servers invaluable. An example was when Citrix announced a vulnerability in early 2020. We were able to provide customers with accurate details of unpatched Citrix servers that sometimes the customer didn't realize existed.

What needs improvement?

A low-cost service to evaluate the risk score of a supply chain would be very helpful.

This could be useful for insurance companies offering cyber insurance to enterprise customers, providing the insurer with a valuable way to unobtrusively, quickly, and frequently assess their customers and apply appropriate premiums for the level of risk. This would also be useful for enterprises. They could, for example, assess companies prior to a merger or acquisition.

What would also be useful for any enterprise would be if their supply chain has some kind of direct digital access to parts of their network.

For how long have I used the solution?

I worked for RiskIQ for 2 years - between 2018 and 2020.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable with 12 years of established historical data.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product scales from small to enormous, however, the pricing is not suitable for very small companies.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support on offer is good.

How would you rate customer service and support?


Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We provide advice on numerous solutions.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy.

What about the implementation team?

Most resellers rely on RiskIQ to provide the expertise.

What was our ROI?

The ROI is based on the risk of hackers getting access to a company's network if they found a breach that RiskIQ could find. Every company has a different cost associated with a successful breach and therefore would have a different ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The setup costs are relatively straightforward and come at a low cost as most of the data is based on publicly available data. To get the most out of the platform, it is necessary to spend time managing the data.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I worked for RiskIQ in a senior UK role between 2018 and 2020. My company, FortNet UK Ltd, are an approved reseller of RiskIQ however, we are an impartial and independent Cyber consultancy and ensure our customers are given advice so that they can make informed decisions based on price, capability and the specific security challenges our customers need to address.
