A solution with a variety of applications bolstered by strong features and functionality
The initial setup is not complicated at all. Threat Intelligence is something engineers can develop and deploy properly. However, the initial setup's difficulty depends on the experience the engineers have with the cases that they need to deploy for, and this is where the skills come into play. The time taken to deploy the solution depends really on the scenarios. And besides this company, we deployed the solution for small projects, which took less than ten days.

The deployment, when compared to other solutions, Is not complicated and does not take much time.
