As part of Tata Communications’ cyber intelligence arsenal, the CTI platform uses evidence-based knowledge to provide actionable advice to customers that can in turn enhance their decision-making. The information is based on a diverse threat feed from governments, commercial third-party sources, and free source open-source threat intelligence feeds, NetFlow data, and honeypots (digital traps to defend against cyberattacks).Collecting and correlating this disparate dataset with the attendant contextualization directly translates into a higher IOC (Indicators of Compromise) score. IOCs enriched with context can help end-users prioritize the threats or imminent attacks that need to be addressed first. Tata Communications’ competencies as a telecom provider lend further weight to this risk-based strategy, compared to that of other MSSPs. Its customers report significantly higher payoffs from this approach compared to conventional threat intelligence feeds.
