ThreatConnect’s says its security platform was built to solve the problem of analysing massive volumes of data to see patterns, gain context and find relationships so organisations can learn more about cyber threats. 

The platform brings together the ThreatConnect data model, advanced data analytics and collaborative intelligence in an effort to provide a complete picture of threats.
 
emt Distribution chief marketing officer Scott Hagenus says, “The capabilities ThreatConnect offers are vitally important for detecting, preventing, reporting and managing cybersecurity incidents.
