ISIGHT Partners And Blackstone Announce Strategic Partnership

iSIGHT Partners and Blackstone (NYSE: BX), today announced a strategic partnership to offer Blackstone portfolio companies iSIGHT Partners’ proprietary cyber threat intelligence.

Under the agreement, Blackstone portfolio companies will have discounted access to iSIGHT Partners’ intelligence. This intelligence will become the base of those participating companies’ cyber security strategies, enabling a much more efficient approach to prioritize security resources to counter relevant cyber threats.

More than a year ago, Blackstone recognized the potential severity of cyber security threats and began employing iSIGHT Partners’ intelligence to drive its cyber security strategy. Now Blackstone is providing its portfolio companies the opportunity to pursue the same strategy.

John Watters, CEO of iSIGHT Partners, said, "Strengthening our long-term relationship with Blackstone solidifies our leadership within the cyber intelligence space and helps position us for the future in this rapidly changing environment. We understand and appreciate the leverage in the Blackstone model and look forward to affording ’Community Defense’ to their participating portfolio companies."

Jay Leek, Chief Information Security Officer at Blackstone, said, "The intelligence-led security model that iSIGHT Partners exemplifies is the model for the future. This partnership provides our portfolio companies with actionable intelligence to focus time, resources and budgets on threats that pose the greatest risk to their business."
