Microsoft announced private preview of its security and threat information exchange platform for analysts and researchers working in cybersecurity. The private preview allows early adopters to provide the software giant feedback and better shape the product roadmap going forward.
Microsoft Interflow aims to assist security professionals respond faster to threats, while reducing the cost of defense by automating processes that are currently performed manually.
Interflow requires a Microsoft Azure subscription for use and is designed to fit with existing operational and analytical tools and remain compatible with various other systems through a simple plugin architecture. It does not necessitate purchase of any propriety appliances, products or formats. Interflow users can choose what communities to form and what data to share and with whom, due to its distributed architecture which provides users autonomy.
Interflow is based on the STIX (Structured Threat Information eXpression), TAXII (Trusted Automated eXchange of Indicator Information) and CybOX (Cyber Observable eXpression standards) specifications. It adds to a collectively stronger security ecosystem by enabling action through information.
Interflow enables automated machine-to-machine exchange of security and threat information, using community-driven format and structure specifications. It allows users to create their own sharing communities, and define what to share and with whom.
