Verizon’s answer to cyber attacks
Verizon Enterprise Solutions has opened the Verizon Cyber Intelligence Center (VCIC). The new center will offer advanced detection and response capabilities to better manage and mitigate cyber attacks.
The VCIC will deliver actionable intelligence to Verizon's managed and professional security services clients through a blend of security analytics and dedicated security analysts, who will have access to sources of threat intelligence so they can help enterprises identify and respond to threats early in the attack cycle. The VCIC will synthesize data collected from the company's global IP backbone, thousands of professional service engagements and investigations, the VERIS framework dataset of cyber incidents, and advanced threat management and big data tools and techniques to deliver unprecedented capabilities for clients.
Leveraging Verizon's global security operations footprint across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific regions, VCIC security analysts will utilize tactical and operational intelligence derived from an environment handling millions of security incidents and trillions of data events per year, and the company's DBIR dataset detailing more than 70,000 security incidents.
"Reliable and high-fidelity cyber intelligence is critical to detecting targeted cyber attacks and to implementing a timely and effective response," said Eddie Schwartz, VP of global security solutions for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "Our new Cyber Intelligence Center will provide clients with a powerful weapon in safeguarding vital company information, intellectual property and customer data."
