Infotech Lead America: Dell SecureWorks has launched a new suite of Targeted Threat Intelligence Services.
The new security services are designed to help enterprises in identifying, understanding and defending against cyber threats targeting their infrastructure, data and executives.
The services include three offerings: Targeted Threat Surveillance, Enterprise Brand Surveillance and Executive Threat Surveillance and complement Dell SecureWorks’ current Global Threat Intelligence offering.
By analyzing an organization’s network and host identifiers against Dell SecureWorks’ streams of threat data, the CTU research team’s goal is to provide actionable threat intelligence to help organizations improve understanding threats to their critical assets.
The Security Risk and Consulting (SRC) team of Dell SecureWorks is launching the new “Enterprise Brand Surveillance” and “Executive Threat Surveillance” services. These services are designed to identify targeted cyber threats from hacktivists, cybercriminals or disgruntled individuals who may be preparing to attack an organization or its executives.
The Enterprise Brand Surveillance service provides real-time monitoring of information outlets to identify threat actors targeting an organization, so customers can quickly and effectively prepare countermeasures to protect their infrastructure, assets and business’ brand reputation.
“In Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)/Targeted attacks, hackers create custom attacks and infrastructure to target one or a handful of organizations. However, even with APT attacks, the attackers do use common tactics such as spear phishing and other social engineering ploys. With our Targeted Threat Intelligence services, we are looking to provide insight into the specific attacks, infrastructure and tactics, as it relates to the organizations being targeted,” said Jon Ramsey, chief technology officer, Dell SecureWorks.
“Having more context into the cyber threats targeting your organization, as well as the indicators of these threats, enables your security team to implement customized and robust security controls and defenses, while helping prepare your incident response and forensic teams for any possible scenario,” Ramsey added.
