As malware becomes more commercialized, attackers are leveraging the same attack kits again and again. Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) offers the ability to detect attacks carried out using methods previously reported by others in the threat intelligence network. In the latest SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Survey, 69% of respondents said their organizations are now using CTI to some extent.

Some of the key benefits reported by survey respondents using CTI were:

  • Improved visibility into attack methodologies (63%)
  • Faster and more accurate response (51%)
  • Measurable reduction in incidents through more intelligent blocking (48%)
  • Improved consistency in response policy across applications (28%)
