Cyber threat intelligence lies behind most cybersecurity strategies, platforms, or operation centers. Yet
the scale and scope of today’s ever-dynamic and geographically dispersed threat landscape means
organizations cannot settle for partially informed or run-of-the-mill threat intelligence. Accounting
for every bit of information, including countless real-time and historical Internet events, matters to
proactively notice, monitor, and protect networks from threat actors.
Cyber threat intelligence can only be as good as the raw data used in its development. Historical
coverage of DNS, WHOIS, and other Internet records facilitates malicious infrastructure investigation
and disruption by exposing otherwise hidden connections. These critical Internet events significantly
contribute to every stage of the threat intelligence development cycle—enabling early threat detection,
real-time threat analysis, broader threat expansion, and timely threat disruption.
