IDC PlanScape: Threat Intelligence Solutions
Published: February 4, 2019 Content info: 10 Pages

This IDC study takes a close look at the threat intelligence field, which has matured significantly over the past few years - evolving from a loose collection of products and services into coherent offerings that serve to inform and augment internal cybersecurity teams. Technology leaders who do not currently have a threat intelligence program in place should consider immediate adoption of threat intelligence capabilities."Threat intelligence is a foundational component of a modern cybersecurity program," says Mike Chapple, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Today's threat environment simply changes too quickly for individuals to keep abreast of developments on their own. Threat intelligence programs provide both qualitative assessments of the field and actionable, automated solutions that bolster existing security defenses."
