As part of the Open Minds Exchange, AlienVault has released two iOS applications – the AlienVault Mobile Console and AlienVault OTX Mobile – to put security visibility directly into users' hands wherever and whenever they need it.

"Advanced cyber attacks are occurring at a pace never before seen, and the only way the security community can prepare for and defend against them is by maintaining a steady exchange of intelligence and information," said Barmak Meftah, AlienVault CEO. "AlienVault has long been committed to leveraging collective security intelligence for the common good, and National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a good opportunity to recognize the power that comes when the community works together. The AlienVault mobile apps are another way for us to give users and the community immediate access to crowd-sourced security intelligence right at their fingertips wherever they are."

The AlienVault Open Minds Exchange provides visitors with the latest research, tools and insights from the AlienVault security experts and community, including:

· AlienVault iOS Mobile Apps: Available now and free on iTunes, the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) mobile application puts real-time data on malicious IP addresses and domain actors directly in users hands. The AlienVault Mobile Console gives OSSIM orAlienVault Unified Security Management platform users mobile access to their AlienVault management console.

· AlienVault At-A-Glance Threat Analysis: Concise analyses of some of the most high profile threats uncovered by the AlienVault Labs research team via the AlienVault Labs Blog and the At-A-Glance analysis series, which gives CISOs the information they need to know in an easily digestible format.
