Multiple Vendors Form Alliance to Share Threat Intelligence
October 20, 2016
In order to tackle increasing instances of digital security threats, multiple intelligence threat vendors have formed an alliance that will share the intelligence gathered by each of them.
An article that appeared on Network World titled Recorded Future aligns with other threat intelligence vendors states that stated:
With the Omni Intelligence Partner Network, businesses that are customers of both Recorded Future and participating partners can import threat intelligence gathered by the partners and display it within Intelligence Cards that are one interface within Recorded Future’s platform
Apart from any intelligence, the consortium will also share IP addresses that may be origin point of any potential threat. Led by Recorded Future, the other members of the alliance include FireEye iSIGHT, Resilient Systems and Palo Alto Networks
We had earlier suggested about formation inter-governmental alliance that could be utilized for sharing incident reporting in a seamless manner. The premise was:
Intelligence gathered from unstructured data on the Internet such as security blogs that might shed light on threats that haven’t been caught yet in structured-data feeds
Advent of Internet of Things (IoT) will exacerbate the problems for the connected world. Will Omni Intelligence Partner Network succeed in preempting those threats?
