Blueliv in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Protection 2016

In 2016, the threat level to enterprise IT continues to be at very high levels, with daily accounts in the press of large breaches and attacks. No single safeguard will protect your organization against all possible attacks, hence, difficult investment choices must be made to select the right mix of security technologies.  But since all new technologies typically make bold promises, how do you discern the hype and marketing noise from what’s actually commercially viable?

Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Protection 2016 does just that – it aims to dispel hot air surrounding emerging technologies and differentiate these from solutions that deliver on their promises and have a positive ROI. It does this through a useful visual guide called the Hype Cycle, that helps you assess the current state-of-play in security technology and service choices available to enable you to make an informed decision on how to best protect your IT infrastructure.

The complimentary report, which is available for a limited period only, also discusses the latest IT infrastructure protection trends and offers valuable industry insights that can assist you with the management and deployment of the solutions within the context of your specific business goals.

The report mentions Blueliv as a Sample Vendor of Threat Intelligence Platforms – a technology currently positioned at the peak of the Gartner Hype Cycle. It also supports the notion that this technology accelerates the breadth and depth of threat intelligence (TI) in an organization in general, by significantly improving the ability to action TI. Furthermore, Gartner contends that a TI management platform can assist with a number of existing IT security use cases like threat prevention, anti-phishing, fraud and threat analytics, as well as new use cases such as TI sharing.

Blueliv was named ‘Cool Vendor in Communications Service Provider Security’ by Gartner in 2015.

We also featured in the 2016 Gartner research Innovation Insight for Machine-Readable Threat Intelligence as

  • “Example provider of commercial threat intelligence feeds you can acquire”


  • “Example vendor that helps you aggregate threat intelligence”
