Prevent. Detect. Respond.

Crowd-sourced threat intelligence should be part of a comprehensive approach to security that includes products that prevent, detect and then help you respond quickly when a breach occurs. While point products often come with their own intelligence feeds, these feeds are only providing a tiny glimpse of the total threat picture. Imagine the wealth of threat intelligence that can come from a global community of security practitioners representing many different types of organizations and geographies. Using crowd-sourced threat intelligence as part of your security strategy, you’ll be able to pre-emptively respond to threats hurtling your way.

When developing a vulnerability strategy, it is important to think through the “what if” scenarios that an organization needs to defend against. However, if an organization is only taking into consideration its own knowledge of potential threats, then the plan will likely be incomplete.

In this slideshow, AlienVault, provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, examines how to use crowd-sourced data to strengthen vulnerability management strategies to stay ahead of exploits.
