BT Assure Threat Intelligence

Providing you with the intelligence to keep your organisation safe

To survive and thrive, any organisation needs to identify cyber threats early.  Security intelligence is only useful if it is timely, relevant and actionable. The best way to defend against security threats is to be prepared and proactive. Receiving a stream of data and analysis after an incident is really too late.

BT Assure Threat Intelligence is a service capability which is genuinely global in scope and is built upon a proven ability to recognise, categorise and provide advice around the mitigation of cyber threats at a strategic and operational level.  The service can help you develop a multi-dimensional defence strategy and build a no-surprises operating model with the ability to respond in an efficient, effective manner when threat issues emerge.

We gather information and turn it into intelligence that you can actually use and act upon.  As a global network operator we are in a position to immediately identify emerging real and potential threats wherever they may come from.  Our analysts have specialist sources for collecting data and assessing threats, supplemented with a wide range of strategic partnerships with world-class organisations that cooperate with us on gathering intelligence.  We also blend physical and logical information to build a full picture of threats and deliver information that is timely, relevant and actionable for you.

Assure Threat Intelligence benefits

  • Minimise risk - forewarned is forearmed, Assure Threat Intelligence enables you to adopt a proactive rather than reactive stance to cyber defence, which  can significantly reduce your risk profile and protect you from the negative impact of a cyber-attack.
  • Enhance in-house capability – Our service can act as a significant ‘force-multiplier’ to your own cyber security resources and we can work with you to develop and enhance your cyber defence strategy, helping you gain control over the vulnerabilities you are exposed to.
  • Gain time to prepare - given the nature of our business, we have early insight of what lies ahead and needs defending against. We can therefore advise you on threat trends and new technologies or solutions that drive a more informed protection against security incidents.
  • Reduce costs - any breach of security has a financial impact, whether it’s on business reputation, theft of intellectual property or fraud.  Assure Threat Intelligence gives you the latest knowledge so that you can protect

Tailored options
