Gartner says: “Once they start looking at threat intelligence (TI), most organizations quickly find no shortage of TI available in various forms. The ideal is to arrive at the right “blend” for your organization.” Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services-2020
Organizations need to have better visibility into external facing assets and services and the related vulnerabilities they may present. It is clearly not sufficient to have only EASM solutions to eliminate cyber risks. Rather, EASM technologies are advised to be a component of a broader enterprise vulnerability management strategy.
Enterprises are seeking digital asset protection wherever exposure may occur. The traditional focus on social media and the dark web is insufficient as threat actors proliferate sources.
Monitoring capabilities across all environments (cloud buckets, deep/dark web) are considered to equip the SOC team effectively. For a comprehensive DRP, services like site takedown and automated remediation should also be included. With a full-fledged DRP service, your organizations will be more resilient against DDoS attacks.
Conventional cyber threat intelligence solutions are for gathering and processing the information extracted from several sources. For the organizations, however, the value lies behind operationalizing and automating intelligence and integrating TI sources with other security related solutions to complement the organisation's visibility and knowledge. CTI is an essential part of the cyber security and is a very effective tool in preventing data leaks.
Cyber threats caused by supply chain/third-party organizations are getting even bigger trouble every day. Gaining visibility into the vulnerabilities related to an organization’s supply chain and third parties to support efforts around assessing the exposure possibility to the organization has become essential.
Intelligence, which is not a luxury, differs profoundly from data and information.
Organizations find themselves in a pool of data and information, but intelligence does not empower them. The lack of strategic intelligence results in the poor operational use of the data and information SOC teams gather excessively from different sources.
With XTI, C-level managers have a strategic outlook on cyber risks their organizations are most likely to face and have actionable intelligence to prioritize the necessary precautions.
It's a great tool to monitor all potential risks to our cyber security infrastructure ranging from ransomware to credential stuffing attacks. It monitors almost every blind spot which may turn into data breaches and provide us with contextualized intelligence.
Based on my experience for over 20 year, we got what we needed to move forward in terms of improving our security posture and reducing our dynamic attack surface.
