Current Challenges with Threat Intelligence

Security teams require deep context to quickly prioritize and respond to sophisticated attacks. Threat intelligence gives analysts an edge, but today’s approaches provide limited value to security operations because the methods are so complex. Teams must manually collect and incorporate multiple low-value feeds into the tools they use for investigation and response. They also must choose between feeds with limited visibility on a narrow vertical or general-purpose commodity indicators with limited context. It’s time for a different approach.

The AutoFocus Difference

AutoFocus gives you instant access to Palo Alto Networks massive repository of high-fidelity threat intelligence so you can consume it as a feed. Crowdsourced from the industry’s largest footprint of network, endpoint, and cloud intelligence sources, you get unique insight into real-world attacks. Every threat is enriched with the deepest context from world-renowned Unit 42 threat researchers. Your analysts save significant time with intel embedded in any tool through a custom threat feed and agile APIs.

Access our continuously growing threat intelligence repository to get unique visibility into real-world attacks sourced from more than 65,000 enterprise customers over more than a decade.

Features:

Hand-Curated Intelligence for Every Threat

Instant Access to Intel When You Need It Most

Give analysts a significant time advantage with intel embedded in any tool through a custom threat feed and agile APIs:

  • Power up any detection, investigation, and prevention tool with a custom feed builder to extract and share the most relevant, continuously updated threat intelligence. You can also leverage a built-in, curated feed updated every 24 hours.
  • Take advantage of embedded intel cards for Palo Alto Networks and third-party tools to automatically surface indicator groupings directly in existing products.
  • Provide threat intelligence to security information and event management (SIEM) tools, in-house systems, and hundreds of other third-party tools with an open and agile RESTful API.

API Framework

  • Intelligence cards
    Get instant access to relevant intel around IPs, hashes, URLs, or domains from a single API query, eliminating the need for your security personnel to manually search and correlate relevant indicators.
  • RESTful API
    Enjoy quick access to samples, file analysis, aggregate data, tags, and much more via the agile API framework. This framework allows security teams to enrich their existing tools in real time to enable fast analysis and automate responses.

Threat Feed Builder
