The Newest Advancement Against Threat Actors: Compromise & Target Intelligence Realized

31 March 2021

by Will Gragido – Chief Strategy Officer, Prevailion

What You Need and Why You Need It

Target intelligence is intelligence that is derived from a unique tradecraft driven counterintelligence approach that empowers security teams with immediately actionable evidence of compromise (EoC). An uncommon capability whose time has arrived after decades of failed promise and often bitter outcomes.  Never before has there been a more compelling approach to detection, identification, and communication of real-time states’s of compromise and similarly, never before has the need been greater for it. Today’s detection, prevention, response, mitigation, and score enabled offerings are often to found to be lacking resulting in the organizations who purchase them being forced to operate at both tactical and strategic disadvantages that strengthen adversarial positions and rigor. This is a state that no organization can afford to remain in, and few are equipped to address in time before damage is done.

Why You Can’t Afford to Not Have It

No other cybersecurity or cyber threat intelligence organization operating today offers compromise intelligence; not one, end of story. And as a result, it is unique and without comparison today. And because this is the case, network, cloud, and endpoint cybersecurity offerings currently lack this key aspect of visibility; visibility that defenders simply cannot afford to not have.

Your Option If You Choose to Accept It

There is one option, and it has been developed to advance the fight against threat actors and adversaries if you elect to choose it. Today, your organization can gain access to real-time compromise & targeting intelligence that can be put into production immediately, enabling your organization to address a diverse set of use cases ranging from those associated with third-party compromise to supply chain to SOCOPs, to IR, Threat Hunting, Security Validation, and M&A activity. These can all be achieved through the use and integration of a singular data intelligence capability made available through the Prevailion APEX platform and/or AXIS Intelligence feeds. Both offer simple integration options and promise to deliver immediate value to the subscribing organization. If you and your organization are ready to pursue true innovation and challenge the status quo in its fundamental the lack of delivering the promises made to you by vendors great and small regarding threat cognition, visibility, and awareness, then I highly recommend you visit Prevailion to learn more and and begin your quest to change the game.
