BT helps organisations to sniff out cyber threats

Telecoms firm launches the BT Assure Threat Intelligence service.


BT has launched its BT Assure Threat Intelligence service, which is designed to help organisations anticipate and defend against the growing number of cyber attacks.

The new service is said to minimise risk, enhance security and provide insight into real and potential cyber threats. As a result, organisations should have more time to address vulnerabilities and lower their risk profile.

Other features include round-the-clock global monitoring and assessment of cyber threats to help safeguard organisations’ electronic data and protect the interests of their shareholders and customers.

The launch coincides with a BT survey, which found that 59% of IT decision makers said that DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly better at subverting their IT security measures, while 40% are not convinced that their organisation has a response plan to effectively counter DDoS attacks.

"We want to provide our customers with the peace of mind that comes from knowing what to look out for and how to create an effective defence against cyber threats. Timely and accurate cyber intelligence reporting is central to this," said Mark Hughes, President of BT Security.

"As a global network operator, BT is in a position to identify emerging and potential threats wherever they may come from. We can draw on a huge amount of intelligence from a variety of sources, both human and technical and draw conclusions on risk and threat to help organisations survive, thrive and keep ahead of emerging issues."

Customers are also offered a range of pre-defined intelligence reporting options, and bespoke options to meet their specific needs of their organisation.
