BT becomes first UK ISP to share real-time threat intelligence data with other ISPs

Telecom major BT has decided to share threat intelligence data with other ISPs to ensure consumers and businesses are protected from malicious software and sophisticated cyber-attacks.

BT intends to share detailed data about malicious software and websites with other ISPs using its new collaborative online platform which will be available for free.

The initiative by BT has now made it the first in the industry to take active measures to ensure the safety and privacy of consumer and enterprise data. It is expected that other leading ISPs will wholeheartedly support the initiative and share threat intelligence data on their own to ensure consumers across ISPs will be equally protected from the latest threats.
