AlienVault Launches Free IP and Domain Reputation Monitoring Service

AlienVault, a provider of security management and threat intelligence solutions, has launched a free service that enables security teams to monitor and track their organization’s IP and domain reputation.

AlienVault, a provider of security management and threat intelligence solutions, has launched a free service that enables security teams to monitor and track their organization’s IP and domain reputation.

Called the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX) Reputation Monitor Alert, the service lets organizations monitor the public IPs and domain reputation of their own assets, and can be alerted in the event one of their IP addresses or domains is listed in a hacker forum, a blacklist, or matches one of the IPs in AlienVault’s IP reputation database.

“This is often a clear indication of system compromise, so when this happens, AlienVault provides remediation recommendations that make it easy for the user to understand what action to take to address the compromise,” the company explains.

Additionally, AlienVault monitors DNS registrations and SSL certificates to protect against unexpected changes.

The new service is an extension of the AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX), an open and collaborative threat intelligence system launched in February 2012, which the company has renamed OTX Reputation Monitor Alert.

“Cyber criminals often use compromised systems to launch attacks against different targets,” said AlienVault CTO, Roger Thornton. “With a service that harnesses crowd-sourced threat intelligence, we can detect these attacks before damage is done. Our OTX Reputation Monitor Alert leverages the broadest scope of data, sourced from the largest community of SIEM deployments, and is free to all IT and security professionals.”

In order to use the service, organizations must register the IP addresses and domains that they wish to monitor which can be done here.
