Organizations around the world are increasingly adopting external threat intelligence to defend against advanced cyberattacks and increasingly sophisticated threat actors. According to Forrester, 55 percent of enterprise network security decision makers experienced at least one breach in the past 12 months. Of these breaches, approximately 41 percent were due to an external attack.
External threat intelligence equips security teams with the ability to proactively identify, validate, and remediate emerging cyber threats across the clear, deep, and dark web before they become fully formed attacks. As more and more security teams adopt external threat intelligence platforms to bolster their overall cybersecurity strategies, the evidence that these solutions are significant needle-movers becomes clearer and clearer.
IntSights recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to evaluate the potential financial impact the IntSights External Threat Protection Suite (ETP) may have on its users. As part of its evaluation process, Forrester interviewed five current customers that have been using IntSights for multiple years. For a composite organization based on the interviewed customers, Forrester found that IntSights users experienced a three-year 442% ROI.
Here are some of the highlights of the report:
- IntSights’ automated dark web intelligence capabilities reduces the time security analysts spend searching for threats by 75%
- Security teams take down phishing domains, malicious mobile apps, and social media profiles 66% more efficiently
- $600K savings in direct fraud and cleanup expense when companies use the IntSights platform to identify and prevent threats
- IntSights also monitors for threats targeting non-cyber assets, and has been used to prevent physical attacks directed at key employees
- Assure compliance with legal and regulatory obligations including GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and more
- Preserves brand image by helping organizations prevent loss of customer records and taking down counterfeit profiles or domains
External threat intelligence is becoming more and more vital to organizations with ever-expanding attack surfaces. IntSights customers have been able to increase the efficiency of their threat intelligence efforts by deploying the IntSights ETP, improving takedown response times and identifying more potential threats.
Users enjoy faster and more efficient take downs of potential security threats due to the quality of information IntSights provides them. Automated dark web searches allow security analysts to focus on higher priority security threats. In addition, the increased scope of security threats organizations can identify and stop at the source helps them save money on costly remediations.
