What is Threat Intelligence?

What is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is more than just threat indicators or data points without context – it is actionable information that can guide security strategy and alert organizations to ongoing and emerging threats. The right data combined with expert analysis provides predictive information about the adversary, such as how they will gain access, pivot within the compromised network and exfiltrate data.

Secureworks Threat Intelligence service provides the intelligence on WHO is creating the malicious activity and HOW the malicious activity is attacking the client’s environment. But more importantly, Secureworks Threat Intelligence can provide guidance on WHAT has happened in the client environment and the actionable next steps the clients can take to remediate the threat.

Building Stronger Defenses Takes Actionable Intelligence

Knowledge is power – not just in business, but also in the world of cybersecurity, where the ability to see and know more about the activities of threat actors empowers security professionals to do more about the dangers and risks organizations face.

Making that knowledge usable and consumable however is challenging, and requires a dedicated team with deep visibility into the cyber underground.

At Secureworks, we harness the power of our global network of clients to enhance our visibility into the threat landscape and provide additional context around threats to your IT environments regardless of country or industry – making our Threat Intelligence Services truly intelligent, and enabling clients to see more, know more, and do more to respond to threats quickly and effectively.
