I would definitely recommend IBM X-Force. If you want to get threat intel and protection feed, and you require to integrate with other Threat Intel Feeds through STIX & TAXII go for XFE. If you are looking to get early warning and timely feeds, and you require faster investigation times with enrichment of your Security Intelligence platforms relevant intel that speaks to what is current and want to protect your environment from, you will have to leverage a trusted threat intelligence platform equivalent to that of X-Force . If you want to speed your security threat identification with what you call actionable threat intel that will seamlessly integrate with your other security tools, you need to ensure that you leverage X-Force. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate IBM X-Force an eight.

It's a good product. IBM is clearly a leader in the industry. We have all aspects of security: compliance, identity management, security incident and event management, and application security. The tool came in to compliment a lot of efforts that we had already been doing.
