IBM Named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: External Threat Intelligence Services, Q1 2021

How can organizations keep up with today’s evolving threat landscape, highlighted by targeted phishing attacks, profit-seeking ransomware and advanced persistent threats (APTs)? The simple answer is better threat intelligence. Please stop me if this is something you’ve heard before. As cyberattacks continue to become more wide-ranging and complex, so too has the type of threat intelligence required to detect, prevent and respond to these threats. There is a new paradigm in threat intelligence, beyond just providing foundational indicators of compromise (IOCs); organizations are asking for actionable and contextually relevant threat intelligence that provides visibility into their organization, geography and industry. 


To help security & risk (S&R) professionals and the businesses they represent better understand and contend with the complicated threat landscape, Forrester has published The Forrester Wave™: External Threat Intelligence Services, Q1 2021. The independent research firm notes, “S&R pros seek out threat intelligence providers that have just the right visibility into threats most relevant to their organization and industry.”


This reflects the latest shift in threat intelligence and validates the core set of content and capabilities intelligence providers need to arm their customers within the new digital age. A leading threat intelligence provider today must provide more than just indicators and alerts; they must serve the tactical, operational and strategic intelligence required to understand threats most relevant to them, leveraging primary source intelligence, brand visibility and critical vulnerability intelligence.
