UK incumbent BT has launched a new security service to help enterprises protect their assets from cyber threats. 

BT Assure Threat Intelligence uses “round the clock” threat-monitoring to help organisations protect themselves from distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, data theft and other security risks.

The service provides intelligence reporting to identify potential threats early on, BT said. As a result, organisations can put in force “pro-active” measures to protect their electronic data, by addressing and mitigating network vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

The service can be tailored to meet specific organisations’ needs, with the operator also offering risk assessment workshops to customers as part of the service.

Mark Hughes, President of BT Security, said: “We want to provide our customers with the peace of mind that comes from knowing what to look out for and how to create an effective defence against cyber threats. Timely and accurate cyber intelligence reporting is central to this.

“As a global network operator, BT is in a position to identify emerging and potential threats wherever they may come from. We can draw on a huge amount of intelligence from a variety of sources, both human and technical, and draw conclusions on risk and threat to help organisations survive, thrive and keep ahead of emerging issues.”

BT said that its Assure Intelligence portfolio leverages worldwide partnerships with nearly 2,000 security practitioners and service consultants, with intelligence data analysis carried out in fourteen global operation centres.

According to a recent survey by the operator, 40 percent of IT decision-makers feel that their organisation does not have adequate measures in place to counter DDoS attacks.​
