Collaboration between 65,000 global participants now enhanced by Groups and Adversary Pages; Support for STIX, TAXII, and YARA included in latest release
"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. "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."
OTX has democratized the threat intelligence market -- any OTX participant can easily contribute and consume threat information for free. It is open security for all, powered by the community. To build on OTX successes, AlienVault is introducing several new features to AlienVault OTX™, including Groups, Adversary Pages, and Easy Pulse Creation Tools, in addition to adding several new standardized data formats to the OTX environment: STIX, TAXII, and YARA. AlienVault USM Anywhere™ users will be able to enjoy deeper threat analysis and tighter integration with OTX through a new threat intelligence framework, helping resource-constrained security teams to automate and orchestrate threat detection and incident response activities. Armed with these new features, OTX members will be able to more readily identify and respond to threats and indicators of attack, and take steps to protect their environments before they're at risk.
