Re: Good point about threat intel sharing
Thanks for your comment, nathanwburke.

There have been at least a couple write-ups on this topic which provide some insight into this change. Therefore, I won't try to repeat the entire position here in the form of a comment. However, if the EPP vendors want to share their thoughts on this topic with me for the DarkReading audience to see, they can contact me and I would be happy to consolidate this information and report back.

Good point about threat intel sharing
Good point about using the cloud to share and ingest intelligence. From the slideshow:

Needless to say, threat intelligence is key. Solutions that don't have access to built-in intelligence need to acquire it through third parties to stay on top of new attack techniques, tactics and procedures.

It will be interesting to see what will happen due to VirusTotal deciding to shut off access to companies that aren't sharing their own analysis. Do you think that companies relying on VirusTotal will move to other competitors (like MetaScan), or will they start sharing their results with VirusTotal?

I agree with your point: ingesting intelligence from constantly updated intel feeds is key. Thanks.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
