See what lies beyond your perimeter: 5 benefits of collaborative threat intelligence

  • Threat intelligence helps defend against cyber threats.

  • AT&T's Security Resource Center provides threat information, security news, alerts, and expert insight.

  • Users gain intelligence to better protect their networks.

When security experts talk about the importance of threat intelligence, they sometimes sound as if they are psychics looking into a crystal ball to help you see the future. And this is partially true; good security threat intelligence can help you see things you wouldn’t normally see by providing multi-level monitoring across devices and the network. According to Andy Daudelin, Vice President of Cloud and Cloud Networking, “With threat intelligence, the sooner you can find a problem, the easier it can be to take action and lessen the impact.”

Threat intelligence plays a vital role in assisting an organization’s defense against cyber threats. In addition to helping you see what’s going on within your network, it can also help you centralize the information and distill it into a format that is actionable. While there’s no doubt these capabilities offer enhanced network visibility and mitigation responsiveness, there is one shortcoming to traditional threat intelligence: Your visibility and intelligence is limited to your network. As a result, by the time an alarm has gone off, it could be too late and your defense may have already been compromised.

See beyond your security perimeter

To further assist customers in proactively defending their networks, AT&T has developed two new ways to deliver threat information:

  • Security Resource Center. Now available, this freemium, all-in-one, threat intelligence portal provides high-level threat information with graphic representation. It is also designed with a customizable homepage to keep you up-to-date with security news, alerts, and expert insights on topics important to organizations.
  • Threat Data and Insights Service. Coming in 2015, this subscription-based threat data intelligence service provides specific industry and customer alert data based on AT&T threat intelligence and includes immediate distribution of threat insights with definitive customer actions.

With the AT&T Security Resource Center, you can gain enhanced visibility into threats occurring beyond your network perimeter to help proactively defend your network.
