Hunting and Attacking Cyberthreats at Their Source (Verizon Enterprise)


When it comes to data theft, cybercriminals can break in and steal data in a matter of minutes. Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report found that in 93 percent of the cases analysed, attackers were able to compromise systems in minutes or less. On the other hand, most organizations didn’t discover that a breach had even occurred until weeks later.

Fortunately, organizations now have a new tool in their arsenal to proactively hunt and confront cyber threats head-on, rather than waiting for cybercriminals to come knocking on their door, thanks to a new, best-of-breed threat intelligence platform from Verizon. The Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center draws cyber situational awareness from Verizon’s global public IP backbone to power enhanced applied intelligence solutions that improve cyberattack detection and recovery times.  This allows Verizon’s customers to recognize and react to today’s more sophisticated cyber threats faster and more effectively – and ultimately, stop cyberattacks in their tracks.
