Welcome to the basics and fundamentals 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 is ThreatKey?
ThreatKey is a cloud-based platform that helps organizations identify and remediate security risks. It scans your connected sources for potential security risks and misconfigurations, and presents these as actionable 'findings'. These findings are used to help you manage and track your remediation efforts.
These are your systems and tools that ThreatKey monitors for security risks. Sources can include cloud platforms like AWS, GCP, Azure, or SaaS applications like Atlassian Suite, Salesforce, etc.
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.
