CyberSecurity is a holistic and ‘equilibrium-like’ of protection, detection, and response. Over the past few years, we’ve started seeing Threat Intelligence products and services. Security operation teams are consolidating them into their arsenal as the reason for two trends in computing.
First, companies practically have nearly lost control of our computing environment. Our data is mostly held in the cloud by other services provider’s companies. Moreover, our networks likely are outsourced, and security tools are disjointed. This situation makes the response far more complicated and involved manual tasks because we might not have visibility into all parts of our critical network infrastructures and no automation and integration framework to quickly prevent successful cyberattacks.
Second, attacks are getting more sophisticated. The rise of APTs (advanced persistent threats), ransomware, cryptojacking – attacks that specifically target for reasons other than pure financial theft – brings with it a new variety of attacker, which requires a different threat model. The situation is getting worse as hacking becomes a more integral part of geopolitics, unrelated networks are increasingly collaterally damaged in nation-state fights. These ever-increasing number of cyberattacks requires the integrated cybersecurity platform and powerful machine learning to detect, analyze, predict, automate and defend against the cyber threats in nearly real-time.
In this session, we discuss the concept of cyber threat intelligence and its main challenges and opportunities for 2019 toward future-proof cybersecurity strategy, and then briefly introduce the integrated security platform which can addresses the current difficulties of disjointed tools and how to leverage threat intelligence to prevent latest cyberattacks and use security automation as much as possible.
