With a growing number of malicious cyber activities, threat intelligence has become an integral part of many organizations. Most threat intelligence solutions available in the market still rely on analysts or investigators collecting, processing, and analyzing huge amounts of data for actionable insights. Collecting and processing these millions of data points and indicators is just too much for human analysts to effectively identify threats and process them in a timely manner.
Therefore, threat intelligence requires advanced technological solutions, such as an AI-Powered Web Intelligence platform that enables the identification of cyber threats prior to occurring by observing attackers, their plans, and methodologies to generate real-time insights. This allows for the rapid creation of profiles of threat actors, and map their hidden activity networks and behavior patterns across numerous sources.
To put the spotlight on advanced solutions for threat intelligence, Cyber Defense Magazine has nominated some of the world’s best cybersecurity experts in the threat intelligence category. The nominees provide the best technologies available to keep organizations safe. Founded in 2012, Cyber Defense Magazine is the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine giving annual Global InfoSec awards to innovative information security companies for their innovations in the field of information security, including threat intelligence.
Cobwebs was nominated by Cyber Defense Magazine for the threat intelligence capabilities of its AI-powered WEBINT platform. This platform collects, analyzes, and monitors relevant big data from all web layers (surface, deep and dark web) including social networks, message boards, online forums, and more.
