IT, telephony and cloud services company IFB has launched Threat Intelligence, a cyber security service. Specifically for SMEs, its aim is to identify vulnerabilities across digital business estate, and provide real intelligence and plans to remediate. By scanning an organisation’s public facing environment, Threat Intelligence provides them with a view and insight into the view that a cybercriminal could be able to see, the firm says. IFB can then take this data and analyse it using the Threat Intelligence platform by categorising the threat and ranking the potential risks. IFB is able to utilise its engineering expertise to make recommendations on how to remedy any risk identified and use this to create an interactive and secure online report with support dashboard.
As organisations further rely on technology, the associated cyber risks have meant that even greater and threat intelligence is essential, according to the firm.
Graeme Gordon, CEO of IFB, pictured, said: “Our Threat Intelligence platform has been developed with a group of IFB customers who have all identified the need for a service that not only looks at vulnerabilities such as outdated firmware and operating systems, incomplete or incorrect device configuration and weak passwords, but also creates comprehensive reports which puts the data identified into context for their business. Our dash-boarding technology and security expertise means we can securely translate this sensitive data, categorise the risk and threat to an organisation and most importantly fix this before it they can be exploited intentionally or deliberately by a cybercriminal.
“Given that working habits have changed considerably in recent months and will likely remain this way for the foreseeable future, now is the time to start protecting remote workers, organisations and boards to understand any cyber threats on the horizon. IFB’s Threat Intelligence helps organisations be alert and understand these risks, translate these to be meaningful at a C-level as well as a technical level and ultimately help our customers stay secure through recommendation and supporting action,”
