Welcome to the fundamental guide of ThreatKey, your comprehensive security posture management platform. This guide is designed to equip you with the necessary knowledge to maximize the benefit of using ThreatKey in your organization's security management efforts.
What does ThreatKey do?
ThreatKey is a cloud-native platform that helps you identify and remediate cybersecurity risks in your cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) environments. We scan your environments for compliance risks and misconfigurations. We present these risks as actionable findings, which include the steps you can take to fix them. You can use these findings to manage and track your efforts to improve the security posture of your cloud and SaaS environments.
These are your systems and tools that ThreatKey monitors for security risks. Sources can be cloud platforms (think AWS, GCP, or Azure), or SaaS applications (think Atlassian Suite, Salesforce, or Google Workspace).
Findings are potential security risks that ThreatKey identifies in your connected sources. Each finding contains information about the risk, its potential impact, and steps to remediate the issue.
This is the process of addressing the findings identified by ThreatKey. Remediation often involves adjusting settings or configurations in your sources.
Destinations are the endpoints to which ThreatKey can send findings for further processing. These can be task management tools like Jira, communication tools like Slack, or incident response tools like PagerDuty.

Check your dashboard regularly to view and manage your findings. Each finding provides details about the identified risk and recommendations for remediation.
Keep track of your remediation efforts directly in ThreatKey. ThreatKey will automatically mark findings as Resolved when we detect that you've fixed them. If you have findings that you know you aren't going to fix, you can Ignore them to make sure you only see your most important findings.
