BT has launched Assure Threat Intelligence (ATI), an analytics, monitoring and mitigation service designed to protect customers from a range of cyber attacks.
The service aims to let customers detect and react more quickly to incoming attacks or atypical behaviour, and uses advanced 24/7 analytics and "global monitoring" technologies.
ATI is customisable and offers pre-defined intelligence reporting options and advanced, tailored services, BT said.
The custom solutions are determined following a face-to-face workshop with BT, which aims to highlight the customer's risk areas and intelligence requirements and offer advice on using BT tools to bolster defences.
The service includes data from BT's network of partners, including 2,000 security professionals.
Mark Hughes, president of BT Security, explained that intelligence from the network will help spot and plug newly discovered vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
"As a global network operator, BT is in a position to identify emerging and potential threats wherever they may come from," he said.
"We can draw on a huge amount of intelligence from a variety of sources, human and technical, and draw conclusions on risk and threats to help organisations survive, thrive and keep ahead of emerging issues."
Threat intelligence has been an ongoing goal of security professionals and government departments.
Darktrace director of technology Dave Palmer highlighted during an interview with V3 in January that increased threat analytics and self-learning detection technologies are a key way to protect against cyber attacks.
US president Barack Obama and UK prime minister David Cameron announced plans in January to launch a series of joint cyber 'war games' as a part of a wider move to coordinate anti-hacking efforts.
The plan will also see the creation of specialist cooperative "cyber cells" designed to collect and analyse threat data, run by the UK and the US.
