Threat Intelligence will be available as part of IID's commercial cyberthreat data exchange

TACOMA, Wash. – April 1, 2015 –IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced Emerging Threats, a leading provider of threat intelligence recently acquired by Proofpoint, Inc., will make some of its data available via IID’s big data solution for Internet security—ActiveTrust. Emerging Threats’ threat intelligence will be available as premium data to ActiveTrust customers—meaning it will be viewable in the ActiveTrust dashboard and can be input into any organization’s cybersecurity infrastructure as easily as IID’s own data.
