LAS VEGAS (Black Hat USA 2015, Innovation City Booth No. 16) – Aug. 5, 2015 -- BrightPoint Security™, a leading Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) provider for automation, curation and sharing of threat intelligence to fight cyber threats, today announced it is offering its Sentinel Lite TIP to all ISAC/ISAO organizations at no cost, further facilitating the sharing of threat intelligence to combat attacks and cyber criminals.
BrightPoint is demonstrating its solution at Black Hat USA 2015 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this week, in its Booth Number 16 in Innovation City on the expo floor.
Now, ISAC/ISAO organizations across industries can leverage the industry’s fastest threat detection solution based on a patented sharing model already in use today by the National Health ISAC (NH-ISAC), which offers threat intelligence sharing as a free benefit of membership. BrightPoint is the first and only patented threat intelligence solution designed for secure sharing that addresses privacy and liability concerns.
“The NH-ISAC has demonstrated that sharing of threat intelligence is a needed component for industry best practices in order to protect private data,” said Jim Routh, Chairman of the Board at the NH-ISAC. “Any solution that facilitates sharing of specific cyber threat information without attribution represents significant benefits within and across industries.”
BrightPoint uniquely delivers safe, secure, non-attributed sharing of threat intelligence. The company recently received patents around bi-directional sharing of Indicators of Compromise (IOC), further increasing its advantage over competing products. Sentinel is the industry’s only patented solution that supports sharing without attribution, in addition to supporting other use cases such as supply chain, subsidiaries and affiliate business models where attribution is needed.
“This offer announced today supports our goal of engaging all organizations and enabling them to share threat intelligence with other industry organizations at no additional cost,” said Anne Bonaparte, President and CEO of BrightPoint. “We are passionate about optimizing the use of scarce security resources by leveraging tools to automate previously manual processes and reduce time to identify threats and remediate them. BrightPoint’s growing traction proves that a solution that builds on industry standards and protects privacy of organizations will be the solution of choice to help facilitate sharing, as long as privacy and liability concerns are addressed.”
With Sentinel Lite, NH-ISAC members benefit from real-time visibility of threats within their IT infrastructure, and from behind the perimeter of their peers by leveraging the industry’s only solution delivering threat intelligence sharing with granular policy controls. BrightPoint Sentinel is easy to deploy in less than an hour, and customers have found attacks active in their environments that they thought were protected.
Following the Executive Order Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing signed in February, the NH-ISAC is leading the industry by incorporating BrightPoint’s TIP to share threat intelligence and addresses privacy and liability concerns for free for member organizations. BrightPoint uniquely enables company data to be kept anonymous and without attribution, and reports only indicators of compromise, frequency and timing of detections. It supports industry standards including STIX/TAXII, Open IOC and CyBox.
