FireEye to Enable Customers to Share Threat Intelligence

Platform to Facilitate Broader Sharing of Threat Intelligence Obtained Through FireEye’s Platform

Platform to Facilitate Broader Sharing of Threat Intelligence Obtained Through FireEye’s Platform

Cyber threat protection firm FireEye announced a new initiative on Friday to enable its customers to exchange anonymized threat intelligence with their partners, customers, and other community members in order to better secure their organizations.

The Global Threat Intelligence Sharing initiative from the company leverages FireEye’s Community Threat Intelligence (CTI) platform and will allow customers to bi-directionally share threat intelligence in near real-time to members of a specific community. Shared intelligence can include indicators of compromise developed from threats that have been identified by FireEye’s global footprint of virtual machines.

FireEye LogoAdditionally, the CTI platform allows members of a community to augment and correlate global attack data with intelligence specifically gathered in their business environment, giving context for both widespread attacks and highly-targeted threat actors, Milpitas, Calif.–based FireEye said.

“Today’s threat landscape demands far more than just broad attack data being exchanged without any context for those receiving it,” said David DeWalt, chairman of the board and CEO, FireEye. “Protecting each other from commodity attacks is important, but, by creating an initiative to protect an entire community, FireEye will automate defenses for broad attacks and power different levels of context and customization to protect the community from targeted attacks.”

FireEye’s announcement was made on the same day President Obama is expected to announce executive action designed to improve how cyber threat information is shared between private sector firms and the U.S. Government at a White House cybersecurity summit at Stanford University.
