Worldwide Threat Intelligence Security Services Forecast, 2019–2023: Chasing the Adversary Beyond the Perimeter

By: Christopher KisselResearch Director, Security Products, Martha VazquezSenior Research Analyst, Infrastructure Services


This IDC study explains the great diversity offered in TISS; a couple of items are worth noting before the larger text. First, TISS fills a need for predictive threat defense (i.e., see threats in the wild and prepare for them). Several companies offer threat exchanges including IBM, McAfee, and Cisco, and there are open source feeds like STIXX/TAXII. The threat grids are great, but there is no finely curated intelligence, and besides that, rarely do businesses have dedicated analysts able to format the threat intelligence for their specific taxonomies. TISS can often meet businesses part of the way in fashioning data to match a business's taxonomy. The future of TISS is exciting. Certain TISS can provide information about a company's security posture. In addition, the TISS can even begin the remediation — however, that requires that the client cedes some control of its network.

"Cybersecurity is often like the sound of one-hand clapping; businesses often build fortified defense without understanding what the threat environment is or who the adversary is," observes Chris Kissel, research director of Worldwide Security Products, "Threat intelligence security service providers bridge the gap between the known and unknown over the expanse of the worldwide web."
