Know Your Threat Actor using Unit42 — ATOM

While reading the threat news feeds today, I randomly visited one good online portal from Unit 42 team. which has good information about the Threat Actor Profile and Malware information, so I thought to share some insight about Unit 42 ATOM here.

Unit 42 is a threat intelligence team from palo alto networks. they are having tools called ATOM which has useful information.

Let me go through one by one.


We can use filtering option in the portal to identify or narrow down to the specific threat groups.

We can apply filters based on “Targeted Industry” , “Targeted Region” and “Malware Used”

Example : <Industry : Healthcare> , <Country : Mexico>

Like this we can identify which threat actor is targeted or possible to target our industry.

We can also see the threat actor profile, campaigns, Indicators and Attack patterns of the specific threat.


We can also view the information using heatmap option.

Here the link below,

Thanks for reading.
