    NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc.

    Investment in ThreatQuotient, Inc.

    NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President & CEO, Toshiki Nakayama), invested in ThreatQuotient, Inc., a U.S.-based start-up that provides “ThreatQ”, a threat intelligence platform that empowers organizations to identify, understand, prioritize, and act on high-priority threats facing their organization, based on customer-defined parameters.

    Background
    As information security attacks are becoming more complex and varied, solutions to gather threat information from multiple sources, such as external feeds and internal security solutions, are in demand in order to unveil overall attacks and automate security response. Many organizations are flooded by massive amounts of threat information, and it causes a lack of capability to promptly contend with the all of incident reports.
    With a threat intelligence platform powered by ThreatQuotient, security teams are able to realize early detection and unveil overall attacks by unifying external threat information and indicators of compromise gathered from internal security solutions. It also automates responses to security incidents through bi-directional integration with existing security products. The solution is able to reduce false positives by introducing customizable and granular rules.
    Their products carry a high reputation from their existing customers and will have increased business opportunities with the future growth of the applicable market. And also we invested in Threatquotient as their products have a high affinity to NTT Group’s efforts in security business, and we expect this to contribute to the creation of new values in these fields.
