BT Simplifies Threat Monitoring For Organizations

IRVING, Texas, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BT today announced a major upgrade to its BT Assure Threat Monitoring service, making it simpler for organizations and security analysts to identify and protect against security threats.

BT Assure Threat Monitoring collects and analyses huge amounts of data and its newest upgrade will now display it for users on a customizable screen. By immediately seeing potential issues, security professionals can better identify, react and respond to security risks.

The upgrade will be available to existing BT Assure Threat Monitoring customers at no additional cost and is standard for new BT Assure Threat Monitoring customers.

Mark Hughes, President BT Security, said: "Helping our customers to improve their security plans by giving them access to real-time threat information is critical. Organizations are facing a growing number of live, complex and diverse security issues."

"These new enhancements greatly improve both customer and security analyst control and monitoring capabilities by bringing together critical information in one place. This will allow them to focus more of their efforts and creativity on delivering better business outcomes throughout the organization."

The service's redesigned interface helps users to more accurately assess security concerns that have often prevented organizations from adopting evolving technologies, such as cloud computing and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) solutions.

Additional capabilities with the service include:

  • A new built-in rule creation feature which allows users to customize the views and threats they see quickly in order to adapt and react.
  • An integrated ticketing system, providing device/network management, communications and troubleshooting of event-driven incidents by both customers and BT Security Operations Centre analysts.

The service works by gathering intelligence and information from all clients' network devices - ranging from detection and intrusion prevention systems (IDS/IPS), firewalls and routers, to servers, applications, mainframes and PCs. If, for example, a hacker tries to break into the network, the service can detect the attempt and allow users to immediately gain intelligence on the threat and respond in real-time to prevent damage from the attack.
