AlienVault Partners with Intel on Threat Intelligence

AlienVault is partnering with Intel Security, to share real-time, actionable threat data between the companies.

Under the new agreement, Intel Security will integrate AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX), which just added a beta release of OTX 2.0, a social media-esque crowd-sourced threat intelligence-sharing system, with members so far contributing 1 million threat indicators per day. This second iteration represents a big shift from the traditional contribution-based model for sharing threat intelligence, and the company said that it hopes that building OTX 2.0 on a foundation of a social networking architecture will allow the OTX community—which has 26,000 participants—to actively discuss, explore, validate and share the latest threat data, trends, techniques and research.

The Intel Security GTI cloud meanwhile supports 6 million customers in over 150 different countries across all types and sizes of customer deployments. Its research on this base shows that in 2014, more than 307 cyber threats were detected every minute, and malware surged by 76% year over year. Coupled with the unprecedented series of cyber-attacks and data breaches in 2014 alone, the increasingly complex threat landscape highlights the need for more robust cybersecurity measures within enterprise customer deployments and more collaborative sharing of threat data, it said.

"Intel Security is committed to industry collaborations which will help provide critical threat intelligence and better protection to our customers,” said David Coffey, vice president for Intel’s GTI, McAfee Labs. “Working with AlienVault will enable us to exchange threat data and enhance the level of customer protection delivered via McAfee's Global Threat Intelligence system.”
