INTSIGHTS – The latest in Cyber Threat Intelligence
As we see an increase in cyber security attacks across the globe and we encounter more and more reactive tasks and actions based on these malicious attacks, we must ask ourselves what can we do to make ourselves less reactive and more proactive in the modern world of cyber security. With this in mind I was recently asked to review the “Active Directory integration” capabilities from an external threat intelligence protection platform from “IntSights“.
But before we start to lift the hood on the product lets find out who IntSights are, what services they offer in the fight against the various “Threat Actors” we encounter on our journey through cyber security :-
