Soltra Launches New Membership Program For Soltra Edge Users

Program Provides Threat Intelligence Professionals With Support To Fight The Latest Cybercrime And Cybersecurity Threats

Reston, VA – SEPTEMBER 9, 2015 – Soltra™, a joint venture of FS-ISAC and The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), today announced an innovative new membership program for users of Soltra Edge™, the first industry-driven threat intelligence sharing platform. With this new program, users can get enterprise-grade technical support and many other key benefits to help advance their capabilities to defend against the latest cyber risks and threats with standards-based threat intelligence. The program is designed to meet the needs of commercial organizations that require full support for cyber security solutions running in their environments.

Mark Clancy, CEO of Soltra and Board Member of FS-ISAC, said: “With hundreds of active users across financial services as well as other critical sectors, Soltra Edge is changing the way automated threat intelligence is managed and shared. This innovative membership program enables organizations of all sizes to efficiently take advantage of Soltra Edge support and other benefits, either through leveraging their membership in FS-ISAC or through Soltra directly.”

Bill Nelson, President of Soltra and President and CEO of FS-ISAC, said: “Soltra Edge was conceived, funded and built with the support of the financial industry and was designed for use by entities across critical sectors. Soltra is creating a robust eco-system for sharing cyber threat intelligence through a high-quality platform with compelling support and upgrade options that meet the needs of the widest spectrum of users.”

Soltra Edge is an on-premise software solution that collects threat intelligence from numerous sources, converts it into an industry-standard language and provides actionable intelligence to help users better protect their organizations against cyber threats and risks. Soltra Edge is designed for entities of all sizes, including those with limited security operations resources. The complete, full-featured Soltra Edge software is available for free at soltra.com and takes about 15 minutes to download and configure. Soltra Edge leverages open standards, including Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX™), a uniform format for the threat information, and Trusted Automated eXchange of Indicator Information (TAXII™), an open standards protocol for routing that threat information.

Membership Program

The process of joining Soltra has been simplified by enabling FS-ISAC members to leverage their existing FS-ISAC membership to join as a Soltra member. Soltra membership will also be available through other ISACs, ISAOs and similar sponsoring organizations, as well as directly from Soltra. Membership levels available today include Enterprise Membership and Enterprise Plus Membership, depending on requirements for support and other benefits of membership. Each membership level is funded by an annual fee.

Enterprise membership tiers include benefits that go beyond traditional enterprise software support agreements including, but not limited to: direct contact with Soltra support technicians and engineers; access to professional services staff for customization and integration support; access to published adaptors; and the ability to submit code modifications for future releases. 

Enterprise Plus also includes expedited review of code submissions and an invitation to participate in Soltra pilot groups, providing early access to new capabilities and solutions.

Soltra continues to offer Community Forum based support where users receive community-based support at no cost (no membership required) and can access deployment guides and best practices as well as interact with other Soltra users.
