Threat intelligence services are designed to gather data across the global landscape of potential cyber threats, including existing and emerging threats and cybercrime actors, using state-of-the-art tools and methods. Threat intelligence providers then utilize this data to provide businesses with the most relevant information in order to help them prioritize security measures and stay cognizant of the viruses, scams, and other trends in cybercrime. Businesses can work with these providers in conjunction with vulnerability assessment services to get a complete, up-to-date picture of internal security health and potential risks to company data and devices.
Threat intelligence services go hand in hand with cybersecurity consulting, incident response, and other cybersecurity services to keep companies aware of threats, safe from attacks, and prepared to respond in the event of a breach or related event. Businesses can deploy threat intelligence software in lieu of or in addition to threat intelligence services in order to maximize awareness and protection.
