Efficiently Utilizing IT Resources and preventing Financial Losses
Every time an informed decision is made in a timely manner, one prevents system downtime, the theft of confidential data, the protect of intellectual property, and ultimately saves an organization’s reputation and customers. Not only would these incidents cost a company upfront, but post-incident remediation and restoration costs can run in the millions of dollars.

Threat intelligence generation is a time consuming and resource intensive process, Most organizations do not have the means required to generate contextually relevant, in time intelligence. Instead of engaging internal resources to organically generate this intelligence, leveraging platforms that are designed to automatically aggregate and integrate this intelligence in an organizations’ current security infrastructure can free staff for other needs, thus saving an enterpris hundreds of thousands of dollars.
