A recent press release reports, “SecureWorks, a leading provider of intelligence-driven information security solutions, continues to innovate its flagship Counter Threat PlatformTM (CTP), leveraging artificial and human intelligence to deliver the visibility, insights, and threat detection and prevention capabilities that aim to reduce the complexity of keeping today’s organizations safe in the digital world. Forming the technical core of SecureWorks’ approach to security, the CTP uses the global visibility gained from gathering and analyzing data from clients all over the world to more accurately identify, contain and eradicate cybersecurity threats. By combining up-to-the-minute threat intelligence with the CTP’s machine learning and analytics capabilities, organizations can make faster, more informed decisions about how to predict, prevent, detect, and respond to threat activity.”

The release continues, “SecureWorks is empowering its clients to make even smarter security decisions with a series of enhancements designed to ease security incident handling and incident response with increased visibility and putting additional context around security events. Among the latest enhancements to the platform: Business-Driven Context and Intelligence – SecureWorks can now dynamically adjust the severity ratings assigned to security events based on assets and vulnerabilities in a way that improves incident handling and reduces the time it takes to properly respond… Unified Visibility – New CTP algorithms mine the raw data collected from each client to create accurate and up-to-date inventories of assets without requiring client action… Accelerated Time to Value – SecureWorks is developing new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for key platform services allowing programmatic integration with clients’ security operations infrastructure.”
