Dell SecureWorks has launched a new set of threat intelligence services for organizations to identify cyber threats and defend infrastructure and data against those threats, the company announced Thursday.

The Targeted Threat Intelligence Services portfolio is also designed to address attacks against executives, according to the release.

“In Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)/Targeted attacks, hackers create custom attacks and infrastructure to target one or a handful of organizations,” said Chief Technology Officer Jon Ramsey. “However, even with APT attacks, the attackers do use common tactics such as spear phishing and other social engineering ploys.

“With our Targeted Threat Intelligence services, we are looking to provide insight into the specific attacks, infrastructure and tactics, as it relates to the organizations being targeted.”

The new portfolio is divided into executive threat surveillance, target threat surveillance and enterprise brand surveillance offerings.

Through executive threat surveillance, organizations monitor information security risks to executives and personnel, including material posted the Internet about and by an organization's executives and personnel.

That information is monitored, tracked and reported.

Enterprise brand surveillance mintors information outlets to identify threat actors targeting an organization and prepare countermeasures.

Through target surveillance, Dell’s counter threat unit monitor’s SecureWorks’ proprietary, private and public information sources to identify threat indicators related to an organization’s infrastructure, using network and host identifiers.
