Just one week after introducing a new Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution, Symantec this week detailed Directed Threat Research, a new DeepSight Intelligence add-on service available for Advanced Enterprise subscribers looking for access to customized cyber threat intelligence.

With the help of DeepSight Intelligence services, companies can receive data tailored to their needs, which provides them with better context on cyber threats, the company said.

Symantec Launches DeepSight Intelligence The new offering combines telemetry from the Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network with analysis by the DeepSight Intelligence team to help answer questions about cyber adversaries and their possible motives.

By monitoring threats, Directed Threat Research can also predict their lifecycle (early warnings), and support executives, threat analysts, and network defenders by providing them with strategic and tactical intelligence, Symantec said.

DeepSight customers can take advantage of Directed Threat Research through a dedicated tab within the DeepSight customer portal, and when they have questions on a specific adversary, can submit requests and recieve customized reports.

“Not all threat intelligence is equal. Context is critical in allowing organizations to apply threat intelligence towards risks in their network,” Symantec’s Al Cooley and Roger Park wrote in a blog post.

“Organizations who know their adversaries, while being aware of their own strengths and vulnerabilities, stand a better chance in the ongoing cybersecurity war,” they added.
