Threat Intelligence

Greater visibility of threats before they strike

New cyber threats are appearing daily, and these threats come in all different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, there is not one single product that can protect you against every single attack but knowing when and where to look for danger is a critical part of being able to combat attacks and staying ahead of the attackers. This is what our Threat Intelligence service can provide.

The benefits of our Threat Intelligence service are numerous. Not only does it help detect existing, evolving, and emerging threats, but it also helps predict future threat sources and future attack types.

Threat Intelligence turns data into a valued commodity. Our service encompasses every single detail about a cyber threat. This includes where the threat originated, who coded it, how it’s developed, the method of delivery, how impactful it could potentially be and numerous other traits. This translates your data from information to intelligence!

Who benefits from Threat Intelligence?

Our Threat Intelligence service supports our cyber security products, which means whenever you use our products and services such, as Managed SIEM, our next-generation anti-virus or our managed firewall, you’ll reap the benefits from our Threat Intelligence service. 

Directors: Threat Intelligence helps Directors gain an insight and an understanding into the threat landscape to help develop strategy and make high-level informed decisions.

IT Staff: Our service changes your strategy from a reactive to a proactive approach to defending your infrastructure from cyber-attacks with alerts and insights. This provides IT staff with quick reliable intelligence, enabling them to make  more informed decisions.

SOC Team & Incident Responders: It also benefits us, as we’ll investigate alerts and incidents quicker with greater context. By allowing us to monitor your threats, we’ll be able to compare them to previous threats to other businesses, in order to be better prepared to be able to prevent them.

Moving unknown unknowns to known knowns!

Gathering and using threat intelligence gives customers insight into attackers and their capabilities, providing invaluable information to enhance security, reduce time of discovery and enable a proactive adjustment to defences to react to the rapidly changing threat landscape.

Customers’ IT and Security teams can use intelligence to help them identify:

  • Who is attacking
  • Why they are doing it
  • What they are after
  • What tools and techniques they are using
  • How to mitigate against them

By understanding these now known knowns, you’ll be able to see the full picture and determine the intent of the cyber-attack and how to prevent it.

Threat Intelligence Data

Our threat intelligence data is broken down into 2 parts:

Unit 12, CyberGuard’s own intelligence team, gathers information from CyberGuard customers so an attack seen against one customer is analysed and the intelligence gained is added into a database. This intel is focused on small to mid-sized businesses in the UK.

Kaspersky Threat Intelligence, who offer global intelligence from hundreds of sources and, using a combination of machine learning and artificial intelligence produces high quality threat data.

By working closely with Kaspersky Lab, we can provide further intelligence using advanced machine-learning technologies and a unique pool of world experts that are capable of mining petabytes of rich threat data.

With Kaspersky’s vast global reach they can offer support with the latest threat intelligence from all around the world, helping maintain immunity to any previously unseen cyber-attacks.

“One of our most valuable commodities is our data and CyberGuard opened our eyes to our potential vulnerabilities. We are not complacent and know that unless we keep our systems and knowledge up-to-date we are still at risk from cyber-criminals. We are lucky to have such an experienced team to look after us who constantly support us and work hard behind the scenes to reduce our risks.”
