Verizon opens cyber intelligence center

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Verizon Enterprise Solutions has opened a new Cyber Intelligence Center for detection and response to cyberattacks.

The New York-located center opened Thursday will deliver actionable intelligence to Verizon's managed and professional security services clients through a combination of security analytics and dedicated security analysts, who will have access to unprecedented sources of threat intelligence.

"Reliable and high-fidelity cyber-intelligence is critical to detecting targeted cyberattacks and to implementing a timely and effective response," said Eddie Schwartz, vice president 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."

The VCIC will synthesize data collected from the company's global IP backbone, thousands of professional service engagements and investigations, the VERIS framework data set of cyber-incidents, and advanced threat management and big data tools, the company said.

"Yesterday's approach to fighting cyberattacks in which each enterprise attempts to combat well-funded adversaries alone or build these complex cyber-capabilities themselves is just not feasible," said Schwartz. "The realities of today's threat landscape require enterprises to focus on understanding the business context of an attack, and taking direct remediative action.

"The VCIC offers even the largest and most sophisticated security teams the opportunity to offload to Verizon the heavy lift associated with critical security analytics and intelligence fusion, and routine tasks, such as log and device management, and truly focus on protecting their precious information assets."
