It seems every month SC Labs talks about the growing connectivity of the world and the growing threat landscape alongside the growing the need for security professionals to have the information necessary to stay ahead of these attacks. Products in the threat intelligence space, which we revisit this month, provide information to help organizations gain a better understanding of their present internal and external risks that to see what could potentially affect their environment.  

Intelligence coupled with the collaboration built into these platforms can arm security teams with actionable information that could aid in preventing attacks, or even provide a strategic advantage so they can proactively respond to potential threats, not just mitigating them post-attack. Companies are increasingly looking to threat intelligence to effectively combat new-age threats and keep up with an ever-growing workload.

Obviously, gathering information and intelligence on threats is a crucial component for any solution in this space to meet the needs of security teams overwhelmed with information but which don’t have the resources to weed through it and respond. Threat intelligence vendors are developing software platforms and other hardware solutions to make information actionable and offer security teams quick visibility into it. That way, security professionals armed with valuable information backed with context can take proactive measures to prevent attacks from becoming an organizational issue. With comprehensive information at their fingertips, analysts truly can delve into threats and spot existing patterns for a more complete view on security.
