Threat intelligence underpins our comprehensive security platform with automated analysis specifically focused on client-side attacks, enabling adaptive tuning of rules and configuration. The Ensighten technology gives organizations the ability to bolster their security stance against not only current, but emerging threats.
Threat intelligence is the process of monitoring for and understanding threats that have, are currently or will in the future target an organization. Threat intelligence is an essential component of any security technology, underpinning the solutions capability to evolve in what is a rapidly evolving cyberattack landscape.

Not all security solutions are created equal and there are many providers who have simply pulled together some code based on known methodologies and labeled them as security products. The challenge is that the threat landscape is ever-changing with attackers adapting constantly – what works at protecting a website today, may not tomorrow.
The reality is that the code which performs the control within a web page is only half of the story – that code needs to be driven by an engine that is constantly tuned and maintained. Ensighten’s solution is backed by a cloud-first, scalable platform that heavily utilizes threat intelligence to automatically adapt to the changing attack methods.
Ensighten security threat intelligence is different to other threat intelligence tools and solutions, as it is focused specifically on client-side threats and attacks. Most organizations that analyze traffic for risk anomalies do so at the perimeter, looking for potentially malicious content flowing between the server and the user. The challenge is that while this analysis is valuable, malicious traffic does not flow to the origin with many skimming attacks.
Ensighten utilizes the same sensors that remediate skimming attacks to look for and discover new attack methods by having them feed data back for analysis. This data is only available to security technologies that have client-side capabilities – that is, code running in the browser along with the website.
