Thales, European leader in cybersecurity, and world leader in data protection, and ESET leading European secure software solutions developer, announce a partnership to integrate the flow of ESET’s cyber information in the Thales cyber threat intelligence center. This will allow all raw data on malicious software collected by ESET to be treated and analyzed by Thales.
This new flow of information will complement the over 120 other sources utilized by the Thales cyber threat intelligence center. It will help Thales analysts to plot cyber threats more rapidly and more precisely, in real time thanks to data collected by ESET, coming from the entire world.
This renewed understanding of attackers will in turn generate better protections: Thales attack detection tools will be enhanced by about 500 new detection rules, issued by the centre. These rules, injected in the detection platforms at the Thales Cybersecurity Operation Center, and in particular in the CybelsSensor probe, which has recently been vetted by the French National Systems Security Agency (ANSSI), allow for a 50% reduction in the time it takes to identify and qualify an incident.
