NEW YORK, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- K2 Intelligence, an industry-leading cyber defense, investigative, and compliance services firm, and BitVoyant, a cyber intelligence services company, today announced a new partnership to co-develop cyber-derived business intelligence products and defense services based on massive proprietary cyber datasets.
K2 Intelligence, known for its investigative excellence, will integrate BitVoyant's expansive datasets to provide defensive cyber products and services. These products and services will deliver the ability to map multiple layers of risk across an enterprise, its vendors and partners; advise clients requiring cyber M&A due diligence; and help to inform cyber insurance underwriting.
"We are in a new phase of the cyber battle, where companies can no longer operate in the dark without the necessary intelligence to stay ahead of advanced threats," said Jeremy Kroll, President and Chief Executive Officer at K2 Intelligence. "BitVoyant's valuable datasets in conjunction with our stellar cyber defense team and investigative strength, will provide clients with the information they need to make better business decisions and create stronger defense strategies."
"Proprietary cyber information is the foundation of our partnership with BitVoyant, synergizing traditional business, Dark Web, and network intelligence," said Austin Berglas, Senior Managing Director and Head of Cyber Defense at K2 Intelligence. "The applications of this information are larger than just defense. This enhanced cyber due diligence offering will provide a thorough risk analysis to protect enterprises against threats lurking in potential deals and partnerships."
BitVoyant has been transitioning their sensitive technologies from the government world to the private sector under the leadership of BitVoyant, CEO, Jared Novick. BitVoyant's data sources and global capabilities obtain network information passively from outside company firewalls to derive valuable knowledge. BitVoyant's current clients benefit from its wholly-owned proprietary data libraries derived from its global sensor grid.
"The partnership applies information not previously available to the commercial market. It will allow us to harvest the potential of this data, and deliver value alongside the gold standard in corporate investigations," said Novick. "We are looking forward to rolling out products and services to large enterprise clients and law firms over the next few months."
The K2 Intelligence team of cyber defense experts is comprised of former law enforcement and intelligence professionals with experience managing the most sophisticated and noteworthy investigations. Their competitive advantage is their competence to provide a holistic capability aimed at creating a robust cyber security posture, respond to threats in near real-time, and proactively defend the network.

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BitVoyant LLC, a leading-edge provider of proactive cyber defense solutions, announced today that it has appointed Jared Novick as CEO of the company. Novick comes to BitVoyant from the National Security community with a unique track record in transitioning sensitive technologies from the government world to the private sector. With his experience in managing public-private partnerships, he is the perfect addition to the organization to help bring BitVoyant technology to the commercial market from the government sector.
Novick's initial focus will be on replicating BitVoyant's proprietary platform and suite of capabilities for proactive cyber defense in the commercial world. The technologies will provide the ability for enterprise customers to protect their reputations, brands, intellectual property assets and customers in a unique way.
"I'm delighted to join and lead BitVoyant," said Novick. "We have an exciting opportunity to utilize successful tactics and technologies originally built for government applications in delivering our services and products to commercial clients. Our approach is proven, trusted and forensically sound."
"If you've called an incident response company, you're already behind the ball," says Novick. "You don't stop car accidents by getting a faster ambulance. Current systems and methodologies are designed to prevent breaches using filters, signatures and block lists. All necessary, but not the panacea we all hope for. You can almost guarantee that every enterprise network has already been compromised. If not by outsiders acting along, then with the help of insiders. That's life."
"We believe we have a differentiated cyber defense strategy relative to the competition," said Novick. "We're proactive all the time. We understand the human side as well as the technology side, and we understand the behavior of adversaries. So our systems have been honed to take that behavior into account as we work directly with clients to keep them safe."
Over the next few weeks, BitVoyant will emerge from stealth mode with real world case studies from private sector organizations that have been using the technology under a special license that gave them early access.
BitVoyant delivers a proactive cyber defense platform and service to confront industrial espionage and protect clients' reputations, brands, assets and customers. All BitVoyant solutions include Cyber Neighborhood Watch, a service that continuously monitors the Internet for indicators of compromise and evidence of unsanctioned activity indicative of a breach. Cyber Neighborhood Watch is bundled with the BitVoyant platform and reinforces additional company offerings.
BitVoyant's name is comprised of the word "Bit," the computer science measurement of data, and the word "Clairvoyant," which describes the ability to perceive events in the future. True to its name, BitVoyant aims to identify threats ahead of time, and then do something about it.
