How To Sort Through Your Threat Intelligence Feeds

<p>A lot of information comes through your data and often finding a threat is like finding a needle in a haystack. It seems almost impossible and without the proper security features, you aren’t going to be able to catch a cyber thief in time. Therefore, it’s important to know what features your cybersecurity software should have, even if it’s a supplemental software. So here is a list of <a href="">important features</a> that will help you sort through your threat intelligence feeds.</p><p><strong>Collaboration </strong></p><p>Sometimes it’s not about finding something bad within your feed, but it’s about <a href="" target="_blank">collaborating</a> with other feeds to see if there’s an outbreak of a threat that could potentially put your data at risk. With a system that collaborates with others, your threat intelligence will know what to look for and when to be on high alert when someone else gets infected. Collaboration is a great tool that bands programs together against cyber threats. The best part is that there is little risk in this sharing because you are in charge of when and who it happens with. Essentially, this is an early-warning system that you have complete control over. All you should have to do is press a few buttons and then you’ll be able to send your information and get some information in return. It should not be a complicated process or hard to manage.</p><p><strong>Turning Threat Feeds On And Off</strong></p><p>Sometimes you want more threat feeds on than normal. Maybe you clicked on something you shouldn’t have, or you’re holding very confidential information, so you want to increase security. At the same time, there are times when you don’t need all of your threat feeds on. It causes a lot of unnecessary information to be processed and could make your threat intelligence miss something in the crowd of information it’s sorting through. Instead, <a href="" target="_blank">get a threat intelligence software</a> that allows you to turn off certain feeds when you don’t need to use them and turn on others when you feel you need extra protection. Threat intelligence software provides you with amazing control over what goes through your threat intelligence feeds and how to monitor what is processed. Often this adds an extra cost, but it’s worth the protection of your data.</p><p><strong>Security Integration</strong></p><p>You’re current <a href="" target="_blank">cybersecurity infrastructure</a> may not be cutting it for you. It could be filling up your feeds and missing important threats to your data. But if you already have cybersecurity software, and you’re interested in purchasing more, make sure it is something that will work with the software you currently have. Chances are your software has a hard time sorting through your threat intelligence feeds, which may be why you’re adding on to it. Definitely look for one that’s specific to sorting the feed and brings it’s own unique infrastructure that matches nicely with the one you currently have. If this happens, then you should start seeing improvements almost immediately.</p><p>For the best protection, you must have a cybersecurity software that is excellent at sorting through your threat intelligence feeds. And for that to occur, the software should have those top three features. You shouldn’t be forced to have a feed that’s so full it threatens your security. That’s exactly the opposite point of having one. So keep an eye out for these three aspects of security and you should be well protected.</p><p>For a cybersecurity system that will provide all three of these features, check out what we have to offer, today! <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-72748759-de3b-4071-8b46-927309e5c0e2"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-72748759-de3b-4071-8b46-927309e5c0e2" data-hs-drop="true" id="hs-cta-72748759-de3b-4071-8b46-927309e5c0e2" style="visibility: visible; display: block; text-align: center;"><a class="cta_button " cta_dest_link="" href="" id="cta_button_458120_934dfefa-640b-40f3-a7d6-8d43f9c1a542" style="margin: 20px auto;" target="_blank" title="Start Your Free Trial Today"> Start Your Free Trial Today </a> </span> <script charset="utf-8" src=""></script> <script type="text/javascript">hbspt.cta.load(458120, '72748759-de3b-4071-8b46-927309e5c0e2', {});</script> </span></p>
