Anomali Partners with Australian Threat Intelligence Provider Cybermerc to Strengthen Cyber Defences

CANBERRA and REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — May  25, 2021 — Anomali, the leader in intelligence-driven cybersecurity solutions, today announced a partnership with Australian threat intelligence company Cybermerc. Their merged solutions will strengthen Aushield Defend, Australia’s national threat investigation and sharing platform, which protects organisations against the  latest cyber threats.

“The entire APAC region is  inundated with  cyber attacks. Businesses are  keenly aware of how  damaging threats like  Olympic Destroyer can  be  and know that  Advanced Persistent Threats, backed by  hostile nations such as  North Korea, are  always looking for  ways to penetrate networks,” said Stree Naidu, Anomali’s General Manager for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).

“I’m excited to be aligning with  a company known and trusted for  defending Australian networks against the  most sophisticated cyber attacks.”

Canberra-based Cybermerc is committed to lifting the  cyber capability of all  Australian organisations. The company’s mission is to build a collective cyber defence by connecting Australian government, industry and academia.

Aushield Defend provides an enhanced intelligence feed of analysed data from a wide range of sources, including Cybermerc’s own sovereign security technologies. Defend provides organisations with information on the  latest attacks, key risks and the Indicators of Compromise (IoC) needed to protect Australian networks.

The recipient of two rounds of federal funding through the  AustCyber Project Fund, Aushield Defend brings government, business and industry together to share intelligence and protect against cyber threats.

Cybermerc’s Director of Aushield, Andrew Slater, says: “Australian organisations have been defending themselves in isolation. Cyber security is  not  a ‘me’ and ‘you’ problem – it is  an ‘us’ problem and we can  be  far more effective together...we can be  secure together.

“Aushield Defend evolves the traditional cyber threat intelligence consumption model by generating intelligence of the  latest attacks and constantly updating security devices, creating a defensive cyber collaboration across the  country.”

Cybermerc leverages machine-learning and Artificial Intelligence to strengthen Aushield Defend and provide defence grade cyber security detection and protection to Australian Small to Medium businesses and enterprise organisations at an affordable price point.
