Avast, a provider in digital security and privacy, announced its partnership with a provider of intelligence for enterprise security Recorded Future. Avast will deliver intelligence on common vulnerabilities and exploit prevalence (CVE) to Recorded Future, contributing to its real-time intelligence reports shared with clients across the globe.
The Recorded Future Intelligence Platform gives global organisations the ability to accelerate detection, decision making, and response times by putting real-time intelligence at the centre of security workflows and sending daily threat intelligence reports to its customers. Avast will provide CVE prevalence threat intelligence from their global endpoint telemetry to boost the security insights Recorded Future provides to its enterprise customers.
The insights from these reports allow enterprises to prioritise alerts, calculate risk scores for patching, and make better-informed decisions on how to handle a threat or cybersecurity incident — and all through a single, unmatched source of security intelligence.

Avast will help our clients prioritize their vulnerabilities based on exploitations they have seen directly from their tremendous global endpoint telemetry at the scale we need. We chose to partner with Avast not just for geographic reach but also to increase the breadth of our endpoint data collection and ensure data independence by diversifying our data sources.’
Michal Pechoucek, Chief Technology Officer at Avast, said, ‘The work that Recorded Future does is so important in helping enterprises spot and mitigate vulnerabilities. We are pleased to be able to collaborate with them and share our threat intelligence so they can better inform their customers. We look forward to working with them in an increased capacity in the future.’
