  • What type of intelligence is useful for these devices
  • How to leverage automation to easily disseminate intelligence to your network infrastructure devices
  • How to integrate intelligence into a full feedback loop for future prevention and reuse
  • How to use reports on blocked threats to speed remediation of affected machines
