Anomali: History in the Making

Anomali: History in the Making

October 24, 2019 | Hugh Njemanze

Let me kick off this post by extending a big “thank you” to everyone who participated in Detect ‘19, our fourth annual threat intelligence industry conference. Hundreds of attendees spanning customers, partners, employees, and special guests joined us in National Harbor, Maryland to participate in this history-making cybersecurity event. 

Why am I calling the event “history-making?” Throughout its three-day run, we made significant announcements that are firsts for the cybersecurity market and our company. 

  • We introduced new product capabilities that have never been available to the market until now, establishing that we are providing solutions that extend beyond the Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) category.
  • We launched a new partner program that is unlike anything else in the market, which delivers free access to threat data and other products from premium vendors through our APP Store.
  • We proved that we are the leader in harnessing threat data, information, and intelligence that helps customers make effective cybersecurity decisions.
  • We recognized that the Anomali Threat Research Team has achieved unrivaled milestones. 

The News

During Detect ‘19 we released the Anomali Altitude Platform. Organizations using Anomali Altitude now have an opportunity to take their cybersecurity programs to a higher level. With a fully-integrated suite of intelligence-driven solutions, customers are turning threat data into intelligence that tells them when they are being attacked, who is attacking them, if the attacks have breached their networks, and how to respond. With Anomali Altitude, customers are detecting and responding to internal and external threats in seconds, with just a few mouse clicks. 

Three intelligence-driven solutions are integrated into the Anomali Altitude platform: 

  • Anomali ThreatStream: The industry’s leading Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP)
  • Anomali Match: The top enterprise solution that detects threats present in networks
  • Anomali Lens: This new “Cyberthreat Analyst Expert Assistant in a Box” detects and highlights all threats identified within web-based content, provides up to the minute research and information about them, and tells users at a glance if any of these threats are already present in their networks. 

You can read more detail in our news release: Anomali Altitude is First to Deliver Automated Intelligence-Driven Cybersecurity Solutions. It is worth noting that we’ve published new technical documentation that includes detailed use cases for our product line: Anomali Altitude Product Brochure, Anomali Lens for Analysts, Anomali Lens for Executives, Anomali Match, Anomali Match for MISP

There are several additional announcements supporting our significant advances: 

Detect attendees were visibly excited and motivated by the sessions and in-depth learning they received. The news media, analyst community, partners, and customers were also intrigued. You can read industry analyst impressions in the press release (above). Several of the news stories published are also quite compelling: 

In addition to news announcements, overviews and technical sessions, Detect 19 provided attendees with a partner exhibition and access to some very special guests. Admiral (Ret.) Mike Rogers, former Director, National Security Agency & Former Commander, US Cyber Command, keynoted on the main stage. Following him was Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy under President Obama and former Governor of Mississippi. We also had the pleasure of hosting Reuters cybersecurity writer and author, Joe Menn. As part of the program, Menn discussed his new book, Cult of the Dead Cow, and met with attendees for a book signing.

The final item I want to call readers' attention to is our new boilerplate. Some of you may be saying right now, “Is this really a blog-worthy item?” We think it is. It tells a more complete story about the company and clearly defines the overall value Anomali delivers and solutions it provides.
