Dell SecureWorks launches Targeted Threat Intelligence Services

The new security services will help organisations to defend against cyber threats

By CBR Staff Writer

Information security services firm Dell SecureWorks has launched ‘Targeted Threat Intelligence Services’ suite, which claimed to help organisations to defend against cyber threats.

The company said the new suite will proactively identify, understand and defend against cyber threats which are targeted at organisation’s key infrastructure, critical data and executives.

The new suite of services include three applications: Targeted Threat Surveillance, Enterprise Brand Surveillance and Executive Threat Surveillance and complement Dell SecureWorks’ current Global Threat Intelligence.

Targeted Threat Surveillance service combines the research expertise of Dell SecureWorks’ Counter Threat Unit (CTU) research team, global security threat visibility, and a Threat Intelligence link analysis platform.

Using network and host identifiers from an organisation, the CTU research team can monitor Dell SecureWorks’ private and public information sources to identify threat indicators related to an organization’s infrastructure.

The CTU research team also identifies, assesses related indicators and provides further link analysis and context in order to assess the true threat the indicator may represent, providing actionable threat intelligence for customer.

In addition, the Security Risk and Consulting (SRC) team of Dell SecureWorks is launching the new Enterprise Brand Surveillance and Executive Threat Surveillance services, which are designed to identify targeted cyber threats from hacktivists, cybercriminals or disgruntled individuals.

The services are also expected to provide real-time monitoring and utilise many human intelligence sources, looking for conversations, postings of stolen company credentials, intellectual property and other indications that an organisation or its executives are the target of a cyber attack.

Enterprise Brand Surveillance service provides real-time monitoring of information outlets to identify threat actors targeting an organisation, while Executive Threat Surveillance service is used to monitor and assess information security risks to executives and personnel.
