AlienVault to Work with HP on Cyber Threat-Sharing Initiative

Effort to Broaden Reach of Threat Intelligence Sharing by Connecting Threat Data from HP Threat Central and AlienVault Open Threat Exchange

SAN MATEO, CA April 21, 2015 AlienVault, the leading provider of Unified Security Management and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, today announced its plans to work with HP to broaden the reach of cyber threat intelligence sharing to support more organizations in staying ahead of emerging attacks. As part of the effort, HP intends to integrate data from AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) into HP Threat Central, its cloud-based threat intelligence sharing and analysis platform. AlienVault intends to also integrate data from HP Threat Central into OTX, one of the industry’s first crowd-sourced threat intelligence-sharing systems.

As part of the joint effort, AlienVault OTX and HP Threat Central intend to offer users broader access to anonymized, analyzed and validated threat intelligence data, via integrated APIs, providing greater visibility into potentially malicious threat actors that warrant action.

“AlienVault OTX system now has more than 26,000 contributors from 140 countries sharing over 1 million threat indicators daily,” said Andy Johnson, Senior Vice President Business Development at AlienVault. “However, the threat landscape continues to get more complex. That’s where partnerships like the developing one built with HP will only strengthen our efforts to support all organizations, regardless of size or IT budget, with the actionable data needed to detect and defend against attacks.”

 “Since announcing HP Threat Central, we’ve been able to provide security analysts with derived, relevant and actionable data to stay ahead of threats,” said Ted Ross, Director of Threat Intelligence, HP Security Research. “With industry leaders like AlienVault, we look forward to expanding the community we’ve established and building on critical insights the industry needs to combat adversaries and minimize potential business loss or disruption.”

AlienVault OTX enables organizations to more rapidly be alerted to malicious threat actors and more proactively defend systems. The OTX partner program – now with more than 19 member companies – provides access to the world’s largest crowd-sourced and collaborative threat exchange.
