What is Threat Intelligence?
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.
Who benefits from Threat Intelligence?
- Directors – gain insight into the threat landscape to help develop strategy.
- IT Staff – move from reactive to proactive approach to defending your infrastructure from cyber-attacks with alerts and insights.
- SOC Team & Incident Responders – investigate alerts and incidents quicker with greater context.
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
