The Iceberg of Inspection is the perfect visual for understanding the incorporation of threat intelligence within your security operations center (SOC). Considering only 10% of the iceberg is visible above water, many of the actionable indicators are hidden below sea level.

Deep File Inspection (DFI) can uncover the network artifacts, tools, and TTPs that are tied to the attacks targeting your organization. These additional indicators of compromise (IOCs) can be leveraged to empower your threat hunting and artifact pivoting throughout your analytical workflow.

Find out if DFI can turn your pyramid of pain upside down and provide the intelligence you need to mitigate even the most sophisticated campaigns targeting your organization.
