We highlight across MSP Today the ongoing challenge for organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity defenses. Because of those challenges, organizations turn to MSPs for their solutions to combat cyber threats that always evolve. Solutions that address this need include curated threat intelligence feeds, AI-powered investigation tools and MDR services.

Below are a few things happening around the MSP industry that can have an impact on organizations worldwide. So, let’s take a look:

Stellar Cyber Introduces Tool for Improved Threat Detection

Security company Stellar Cyber launched the MITRE ATT&CK Coverage Analyzer, a free tool for existing customers. This analyzer helps security teams assess the effectiveness of their threat detection strategies by visualizing how different data sources impact their ability to identify threats based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework. This allows for informed decisions on selecting data sources to optimize threat coverage.

Intel 471 Acquires Cyborg Security to Bolster Threat Hunting Capabilities

Cyber threat intelligence provider Intel 471 announced the acquisition of Cyborg Security. This move strengthens Intel 471's threat hunting offerings by incorporating Cyborg Security's expertise and the Hunter Platform.

The acquisition reflects the growing convergence of CTI and threat hunting practices within the cybersecurity industry.
