May 13th, 2019, Author / Editor: Evernine / Lenz Nölkel
Bitdefender expands its strategy towards a service-oriented approach. Companies & Co can now integrate Bitdefender Advanced Threat Intelligence into their security solution. With the addition of new threat intelligence services, Bitdefender is taking a step in the direction of advanced threat intelligence.
Bitdefender is a global provider of cyber security solutions and antivirus software. Founded in 2001, Bitdefender provides security products and protection for consumer and enterprise devices, networks and cloud services.
“There is no question that businesses are turning increasingly to data scientists and security services to stay ahead of the onslaught of cybercrime and attacks on their IT systems. Our Advanced Threat Intelligence Services give our customers access to our international telemetry network and a network of the best industry experts,” said Harish Agastya, senior vice president of enterprise solutions at Bitdefender.
The information on which the new Threat Intelligence Services are based is provided by over 800 engineers and researchers at Bitdefender and its Cyberthreat Intelligence Labs. The goal is to gain better insight into the threat landscape. With the new Threat Intelligence Service, the company is opening up to its network of partners and customers, blocking over 50 million malicious URLs and up to two million malware samples every day.
With over 500 million sensors, heuristics, honeypots, and collaboration with cyber security partners, international organizations, and law enforcement agencies worldwide, the company provides the most comprehensive threat intelligence available today. 2019 is the year of security services: Improving advanced threat intelligence is consistently becoming a top priority for security decision-makers this year.
What are Threat Intelligence Services?
A Threat Intelligence Service addresses the problem that although a great deal of data exists on existing and new threats to the security of IT systems, these are not available in a consolidated form. Companies have to invest a lot of time and effort to view, filter, and leverage the data. Threat Intelligence Services enable security analysts to access threat data and contextual information from URLs, IPs, domains, files, command & control servers, and advanced persistent threats. In addition, users can better identify the Indicators of Compromise in real time to block current attacks before they can do harm.
The aim is to help companies quickly identify dangers and protect their own IT. Those responsible are put in a position to understand the risks, close weak points and prevent hacker attacks. The Threat Intelligence Service prepares the collected data in such a way that only relevant information concerning the IT used is taken into account. Companies using a threat intelligence service can close security vulnerabilities and proactively take action to prevent data loss or IT system failures.
