New Threat Intelligence Center and E-mail Security Tool To Keep
Companies Safe From Cyber Attacks
CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 29, 2014--
CBTS, a leading technology solutions provider, today announced the
operation of its Advanced Cyber Security division’s new Threat
Intelligence Center in Cincinnati. The center is staffed with experts
experienced in the military, financial, manufacturing and defense
industries and is dedicated to monitoring and protecting the data of
CBTS business customers.

“Our center was modeled after the best practice systems and processes
used by major defense contractors,” said Brian Minick, vice president of
CBTS Advanced Cyber Security. “We help our customers not only detect
attacks but also learn from them to prevent future attacks to their data
and systems.” Minick calls this process Intelligent Analysis and
Adaptive Defense, which is the cornerstone of the Advanced Cyber
Security product suite.
The CBTS Advanced Cyber Security team’s framework allows it to adapt in
response to the rapidly changing nature of cyber attacks. The threat is
no longer a blind program that happens to find a weak spot but very
intelligent and well-financed attackers who have a specific target in
mind. Attackers like these can patiently probe defenses for a flaw and
exploit that flaw to great advantage. As the attacks mutate to account
for security changes, so must the defenses.
“The process is simple: we detect an attack, tear it apart, learn from
it and then build that learning back into the defenses to take the
possibility of reusing tools or tactics off the table for the attacker,”
Minick said. “This approach enables our team to forge custom defenses to
address the specific threats that each of our customers face and allows
us to use the attackers’ tools against them.”
In conjunction with the opening of the Threat Intelligence Center, the
Advanced Cyber Security Product Team launched its new E-mail Security
tool, which will help defend customer data and provide a rich source of
information to further enhance customers’ data security.
Over 90 percent of attacks are initiated through e-mail phishing, a
process in which a seemingly harmless e-mail can inject a hacker’s bad
code into a computer network. The e-mail security tool is the first
offering in CBTS’s overall Advanced Cyber Security Suite.
