AlienVault Open Threat Exchange
AlienVault announced that it had expanded its AlienVault Open Threat Exchange, its crowdsourced threat intelligence offering. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company added new Adversary Pages to compile threat information on specific threat actors and groups, new groups to bring together security researchers and practitioners, new support for standardized data formats and protocols, and new support for YARA rules. The company also said it has launched Easy Pulse Creation Tools to make it easier to create pulses, which are summaries of threats, targets and IOCs.
"AlienVault OTX proves that the most powerful tool in the fight against cybercrime is community collaboration," Jaime Blasco, vice president and chief scientist at AlienVault, said in a statement about the launch. "And we have the best community online. Our OTX enhancements will provide our users with the tools they need to share the most recent threat intelligence they have on the most complex adversaries in the industry faster than ever before. In return, they get the most relevant and timely threat indicators they need to protect their environment for free."
