Bitdefender with powerful new threat intelligence solution

October 9, 2023

  • New offering for SOCs, MSSPs and technology partners with intelligent analysis of IT security in context
  • Improved cybersecurity decision-making, enhanced capabilities and deployment efficiency

The powerful new Bitdefender Threat Intelligence (TI) enables organisations with a Security Operation Centre (SOC), Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and technology partners to integrate cyber threat intelligence data and dynamic malware analytics into their operations. The solution provides organisations with greater insight into the evolving global threat landscape to better identify and validate risks, prioritise alerts, and accelerate threat hunting and security incident response.

Bitdefender Threat Intelligence draws on the Global Protective Network, an extensive network of hundreds of millions of sensors that continuously collect threat intelligence data worldwide. Bitdefender Labs experts correlate and verify threat data into persistent threat objects, collect related known Indicators of Compromise (IOCs), malicious domains, URLs, file hashes, and IP addresses. They also perform deep analysis to provide extended context. Bitdefender adds hundreds of new threats every minute and validates billions of queries daily.

Bitdefender TI is deployed and managed through IntelliZone. IntelliZone is an easy-to-use cloud portal that provides organisations with access to Bitdefender’s global threat intelligence database and malware sandbox service. In addition, IntelliZone helps evaluate and test how different threat intelligence feeds and scenarios impact cybersecurity operations, including products, services and SOCs, before they are deployed live. IntelliZone intelligence is available via APIs and feeds to enable a wider variety of integration scenarios.

Key features and benefits at a glance:

  • Global threat intelligence data: Bitdefender Threat Intelligence provides contextual intelligence from multiple sources including its own network of customers and partners. This improves the ability of cybersecurity products and security teams to detect malware, malicious campaigns and anomalous behaviour faster.
  • Faster decision-making and incident response: Curated and highly contextualised data increases defence efficiency by helping to validate and categorise alerts. At the same time, they reduce the number of false alarms. Threat intelligence also speeds up incident response. It streamlines threat hunting by optimising profiles of associated actors, malware families, IOCs, tactics, techniques and procedures.
  • Integration of appropriate feeds: Organisations can choose from a variety of threat intelligence feeds. These provide operational intelligence from Bitdefender Labs on Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), ransomware, phishing and fraud, command-and-control server and mobile data, as well as IP address, web, file reputation and exploited vulnerability data.
  • Flexible and easy to use: The Bitdefender IntelliZone portal provides enterprises and security analysts with a consolidated view of the evolving risk landscape and malware sandbox analysis through an intuitive, easy-to-manage interface. In addition, the data is also available via an API for automation purposes.
  • “The availability of relevant, timely and actionable risk and threat intelligence is essential in all areas of modern cybersecurity as attackers’ methods of circumventing defences become more diverse,” said Andrei Florescu, Deputy General Manager and Senior Vice President of Products, Bitdefender Business Solutions Group. “Bitdefender Threat Intelligence is based on millions of globally distributed sensors that continuously monitor IT assets and infrastructures across our customers’ and technology partners’ environments, providing a complete global view of the threat landscape. These insights, along with our analytics capabilities, enable organisations to optimise their security posture and cyber resilience against attacks.”

According to the “2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services”, “few organisations … have an accurate view of their own threat landscape today. Successful TI services and programmes have functionality to assess risks in terms of threat actor groups, tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), indicators of compromise (IOCs), exploits and more, and can align their requirements with business expectations.”
