In the October 13th report, Gartner points out that “Organizations struggle to mitigate vulnerabilities because of the inability to prioritize them due to a lack of context about the assets and external threat environment.”
We couldn’t agree more. It’s that lack of visibility, and subsequent inability to prioritize threats, which often hamper an organization’s cybersecurity posture.
Our mission is to change that. Prevailion’s exclusive intelligence capabilities empower organizations by giving them greater visibility into the numerous threats that are actively targeting their networks and the networks of their key partners. Instead of relying on risk assessments and error-prone alerts, we go directly to the source – the hackers’ own networks – to collect actual proof of compromise activity. This unprecedented real-time intelligence of malicious cyber activity gives companies a critical advantage in defending their networks against active and emerging threats.
But we’re not done yet. Prevailion’s threat intelligence and development teams are currently working on new upgrades to the APEX Platform that will further enhance our cyber intelligence capabilities.
Stay tuned for a new “breach intelligence” capability coming early next year!

Despite the many regulations from GDPR to CCPA, HIPAA, and PCI DSS that mandate a company report a data breach, many corporate hacks go unreported. Certainly, compliance is a driving force for the organizations that do report a data breach. Still, in 2019, CSO Online reported that the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center received reports […]
