Cyxtera Technologies announced Wednesday immediate availability of a new suite of strategic threat analytics capabilities, designed to help enterprises, service providers and public-sector organizations better predict, detect and prevent cyberattacks.

Cyxtera Threat Analytics Services (C-TAS) include a range of offensive and defensive threat analytics, consulting and response services, leveraging the company’s own suite of advanced network and communication analytics solutions in addition to best-in-class tools from across the industry. In a time when the threat of cyberattack has never been higher, this new services portfolio will help Cyxtera’s customers build cyber-resilient operations across their distributed IT estates.

C-TAS analyzes multiple data sources and provides insight into user behavior, system performance, and phishing campaigns and other adversary tactics. It also offers deep analytics to proactively search for and defeat intrusions and other malicious activities in customer networks – stopping adversaries before damage can occur, and implements secure control-plane services including domain name service recursive lookup servers and managed border gateway protocol configurations.
