Strategic Collaboration Brings Real-Time Contextual and Actionable Threat Intelligence to Multiple Sectors, including Energy and Legal Services
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(December 6, 2017)--Anomali, the leading provider of market-leading threat intelligence solutions, announced today it has partnered with Global Resilience Federation (GRF), an intelligence hub that enables global cyber and physical threat sharing. The partnership will enable real-time threat monitoring and analysis across multiple sectors, including Energy Analytic Security Exchange (EASE) and Legal Services Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (LS-ISAO).
“Because cyber threats are global in nature, our long-term vision is to see relevant intelligence shared across all sectors in real-time," said Colby DeRodeff, co-founder and chief strategy officer, Anomali. "For example, if a financial institution shares threat intel about a potential hack against its customer base, this information should be shared with all sectors that focus on customer support, including energy and legal. One organization’s detection is another organization’s prevention.”
The partnership between Anomali and GRF will provide crucial threat intelligence sharing capabilities for GRF members through Anomali ThreatStream. Members can login through a simple online dashboard, where they can see different malware histories, breakdown searches by various threat factors, and export data to plug into specific systems. GRF offers a growing network of more than 7,000 organizations who will have access to an unprecedented level of threat data analysis. The Anomali threat sharing platform will provide member companies with a profile and history of threats and the bad actors behind them. This information will allow analysts to make informed decisions about bolstering defense strategies and building out more robust cyber security postures.
"As the level of sophistication among hacking tools and techniques continues to rise, cybercrime is expected to cost businesses more than $6 trillion by 2021," said Cindy Donaldson, President, GRF. "Our customers need a platform that can process billions of Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) in seconds and provide real-world insight. Anomali ThreatStream is GRF’s solution of choice.”
A recent Ponemon/Anomali report confirms that threat intelligence sharing is critical in keeping up with the pace of increasing malicious activity. However, although the demand for intelligence increased, driving consistently high levels of member contributions remains a challenge in some communities. These challenges to sharing threat intelligence are due to various reasons, including a lack of expertise and fear of revealing a breach. To offer greater trust within the communities, and in turn increased sharing, Anomali created Trusted Circles within the ThreatStream platform. Trusted Circles allow specific, vetted members of a community to collaborate and discuss threat activities they have observed around a specific campaign, adversary or incident confidentially.
Anomali empowers organizations to detect, investigate and respond to active cybersecurity threats. The award-winning ThreatStream threat intelligence platform aggregates and optimizes millions of threat indicators, creating a "cyber no-fly list." Anomali integrates with internal infrastructure to identify new attacks, or search forensically over the past year to discover existing breaches, and enables security teams to quickly understand and contain threats. Anomali also offers STAXX, a free tool to collect and share threat intelligence, and provides a free, out of the box intelligence feed, Anomali Limo.
