Leverage Modern Threat Intelligence Tools and Techniques to Impact Security Fundamentals

We provide a “real-world and deep-in-the-trenches” approach to using modern threat intelligence tools.

Post by Brandon Hoffman Feb 04, 2021

I wish I had this knowledge when I first started advising organizations on building their threat intelligence tools, detection and response systems. Timing was about 15 years ago when endpoint, detection and response tools and techniques were emerging. I remember talking to Gartner analysts, like Anton Chuvakin back in the day, about the early Threat Intel and EDR tech players and watching them battle it out for dominant market share.

Fast forward to today and the same threat and risk challenges remain. There’s an abundance of threat intelligence tools and EDR techniques that are not being fully utilized or capabilities turned off due to IT complexities and too much alert noise. I’m seeing network and security practitioners struggle daily as they try to keep up with IT demands and attacks hitting their networks.

Whether it’s the CIO, CISO or their IT teams, they’re looking for ways to optimize IT operations, gain better control and visibility while reducing overall risk to their company and customers. Sadly, it’s not happening especially if organizations are new to security or lack mature security expertise. The consistent scenario is the lack of attention to foundational security. Whether it’s areas that have been neglected or under invested, teams are unable to master the basics of asset enumeration, risk assessment, and vulnerability management.

Well, we’re on it and have been working with organizations of all sizes.

We’re advising our customers and partners on how to scale their network and security operations. We’re driving our innovative Resolution IntelligenceTM platform (integrated network, security and cloud ops) and Intelligent SOC solutions to market both as SaaS and managed services offerings.

Our product roadmap is on track with major tools, functionalities and integrations set to release in 2021. And we just announced our ProsperIT Partner Program focused on growing the channel business for MSPs, MSSPs, VARs and System Integrators (SIs). It’s exciting times and we’re ramping furiously.

Over the past decade, we have worked with more than 6,000 organizations at major enterprises and service providers to increase their operational efficiencies. We have taken these key learnings and best practices to digital print with our newest offering a, Threat & Attack Surface IntelligenceeBook which is now available as a free download to IT, network and security professionals.
