Awareness of the benefits of behavior-focused defense is growing, and more intelligence around adversary tactics, techniques, and procedures (“”TTPs””) is available now than ever. However, as major adversaries increasingly modify their TTPs, teams struggle to track and manage the rising volume of TTP intel.
