Threat intelligence is curated information about an existing or emerging cyberthreat that can be distributed for the purpose of improving defenses against a specific attack. Going beyond IP addresses, hashes, and other core threat identifiers, threat intelligence provides critical context around a threat activity, including indicators of compromise (IoC), indicators of attack (IoA), the tactics employed, and, potentially, the motivation and identity of the adversary.
Through leadership within the threat intelligence sharing community and by developing technologies that more easily share and use threat intelligence, we help customers better identify and stop attacks.
Leading cybersecurity solution providers, including McAfee, have come together to share threat intelligence on advanced attacks, their motivations, and the tactics of the malicious actors behind them.Learn More
