BT adds Assure Threat Defense to handle advanced cyber security threats

BT on Wednesday announced the launch of Assure Threat Defense.

BT Assure Threat Defense helps enterprise customers and security analysts better identify and react to advanced cyber security threats.

The new service automatically monitors network traffic and downloads. It enables users to identify complex infections across the full range of customer devices – such as PCs, laptops, mobile devices, servers, and files, said BT.


Mark Hughes, president of BT Security, said: “Traditional security controls can’t always adequately protect against these advanced techniques. Assure Threat Defense has been designed to offer organizations world class resistance to address the constantly evolving threat landscape. It creates a secure and robust solution for customers across all sectors and of all sizes.”

BT security analysts investigate the issue, evaluate the risk and notify the customer with highly informed details on the threat’s targets and associated cyber security information. Combining threat detection capabilities with swift response times means that customers using the new solution are assured of industry leading continuous threat protection.
