Driven by expanding use cases, approachable intelligence, and the incorporation of premium services, demand for Digital Risk Protection Services (DRPS) has grown over the last 12 months and continues to increase.
In Gartner’s latest Emerging Technologies report, the author cites the broad range of use cases DRPS addresses as one reason for this growth, including:
- Brand protection (ex: typosquatting, impersonation)
- Data leakage detection (ex: protection of intellectual property)
- Account takeover prevention (ex: credential theft phishing)
- Fraud campaigns (ex: credit card compromise)
Another reason the for the increasing interest is the complexity of traditional Threat Intelligence services. As small and midsize enterprises tend to lack the talent required to understand and apply information from these engagements, adoption of Digital Risk Protection has overtaken that of TI services.
Additionally, the incorporation of premium professional services to DRPS has emerged as a differentiated capability when compared to tools that only offer monitoring and alerting.
DRPS providers enable their clients to focus on key priorities and achieve better alignment to business needs when they include services such as curating intelligence on their clients’ behalf and facilitating the remediation of threats.
When providers take the extra step of incorporating threat intelligence analyst support into takedown offerings, this unique combination alleviates a host of operational burdens – including developing technical integrations, establishing communications protocols with numerous platforms and provider networks, and recruiting specialized security talent.
